Montoya vows to KO Pagara-A A +A
Monday, August 6, 2012
ROSBEL Montoya wants to continue where he left off last year and vows to end his saga with Jason Pagara by knocking him out in their rematch.
In September last year, Montoya outclassed Pagara en route to a unanimous decision win. The 27-year-old Mexican won’t allow a trilogy to happen by scoring an emphatic win.
“This rematch will be harder because Pagara does not want to lose in his hometown. I know he will train harder and be ready. That is why I am training hard for this fight.
I have two brothers that are boxers also, and we are always training. My father was in my corner the first fight, and he will be there again. My prediction fort his fight, I will win by knockout. I have more power now,” said Montoya.
Montoya and Pagara are fighting for the vacant World Boxing Organization light welterweight crown in the main event of “Pinoy Pride XV”.
Pagara was one of the most promising prospects coming out of the ALA Gym but his career was temporarily derailed by Montoya. “Pagara is one of the toughest fighters I ever fought,” Montoya said.
