Thoughts on opponent, Francisco Rivera? I think this is a great matchup for me. This fight is important to me because I will demonstrate how much I have evolved against an experienced fighter. He is tough, but he will not know what to do with Goyito Power! He will play into my game and I will have my hand raised at the end of the night.
