"We are working hard in the gym here in Indio, California with Joel Díaz. Cordova is a great fighter who comes from the front, I don't know much about him but I'll be ready for him,” said Angel Acosta. "I am very happy and motivated for this fight because it puts us close to an opportunity for the world championship. On April 6 I will be ready to put on a show for Puerto Rico and my family.“
“It’s a great opportunity for my career,” said Angelino Cordova. ”I feel really excited and happy with this fight. There's going to be fireworks inside that ring. Tito Acosta is a great champion and I have a lot of respect for him but It will be a war. I am training in NY and will be ready to face the best Acosta in April.”
