Last week, the Knuxx family introduced everyone to pro fighter Brandi Montoya and this week we take that a step further with a video interview. Brandi took some time in between training sessions to sit down with Knuxx. Brandi’s next fight is on September 1, 2012 in Pueblo Colorado vs. Chantel Cordova as the main event of Colorado vs. New Mexico Boxing.

Question: How’s the camp been?
Answer: “It’s rough. It’s really rough. He’s, I swear he’s trying to kill me but you know he says otherwise.”
Question: What are some immediate differences that happen when your, from normal training to specially focusing on a fight?
Answer: “Just he tells what I have to do to beat the girl. What he feels that I need to really focus on that’s what I try to focus on in my training for a specific fight. And then just depending on I mean the rounds, this fight is going to be eight rounder. So he’s been sparring me a lot more. He’s been sparring me with Amanda Crespin, just putting in more rounds.”
Question: Outside the gym what kind of work are you put in cardiovascular?
Answer: “I run a lot. I do the insanity work outas well which is crazy cardio so.”

Question: And then what are some specifics diet changes to make when it’s fight time?
Answers: “Cutting out the sugar.”
