Miguel Espino Training Camp Notes
WBC CABOFE middleweight champion, Miguel Espino has been looking sharp in training camp. Trainer John Bray reports the north Hollywood native is handling everyone in sparring. San Fernando is home to the “John Bray Boxing Club”, where Espino has been doing most of his damage. Recently the Russians have been invading Bray’s gym, bringing in tough dancing partners to square of against Espino. Last week Victor Oganov got a glimpse of what Espino brings to the table as he was broken down after 4 rounds. Espino has also been sparring tough Mexican fighters out of Phill Paulina’s “Throwback Boxing Gym” in Burbank Ca.
All in all, Miguel is ready for anyone in the middleweight division. First on the list is his classmate, Juan De La Rosa, from the first season of the “Contender” reality show. They are set to square off on September 21st at the Double Tree Hotel in Bakersfield, Ca. When asked about how training camp was going, Espino stated, “Right now I feel invincible. Everything seems to be coming together for me right now. All my punches are hitting their spots and my stamina is the best it’s ever been. I know my fight with De La Rosa will be tough, but I’m doing everything I can to prepare myself for the victory. It’s going to be a great fight, one the fans will remember.”
