Jaime Munguia and Gabriel Rosado are just about set for action on Saturday night, with only today’s weigh-in to get through before their DAZN main event.

Both fighters gave credit to their trainers — Erik Morales for Munguia (37-0, 30 KO), Freddie Roach for Rosado (26-13-1, 15 KO) — at their final press conference on Thursday.

I feel like this has been the best training camp I have had my whole career. I feel good, I feel strong and we are ready,” Munguia said. “I feel like moving up to 160 lbs was good for me, my body feels stronger and I feel better. I think teaming up with Erik has improved my technique, we have made a great team, and I have learned a lot from him. And I think this Saturday we will show off everything we have worked for and have learned.”

“Freddie and I are coming off of some good momentum. We had a great camp, great sparring and truthfully it was a camp where I was locked in from beginning to end,” Rosado said. “Experience is what is different, locking in and training with a Hall of Fame trainer who just guides me. I have never given up on myself, I have always worked hard and have always believed that I could be a better fighter. And I look forward to proving that on Saturday.”

Bad Left Hook will have live coverage for Munguia-Rosado on Saturday, November 13, starting at 9 pm ET on DAZN. Join us then!
