Last week at the press conference for Chavez & Crespin Promotions Presents: Saturday Night Fights at the Kiva inside the Albuquerque’s Convention Center on October 27, 2012. Knuxx was given the opportunity to speak with Brandi “Babi Doll” Montoya about her upcoming WIBA Intercontinental Title fight against Cristina Fuentes, one of four title fights on the line that night.
How are you doing and how has camp been?
Doing good, camp’s been camp, train hard work and fight no matter who it is, I’m ready, ready to eat.
So how are you and “Him” (Coach Tony Rosales) getting along this camp?
This camp has actually been a little but worse between me and him; we’re fighting a little bit more arguing a little bit more. We’re peanut butter and jelly and he calls me his sour cream now, that’s why I said sour cream in the press conference. We’re going at it a little bit more this time.
So is the pressure of the training with him bigger than the pressure of the opportunity?
Yes, yeah it is, he just, he always yap yap, but he knows what he’s doing and he just wants to help.
Cristina Fuentes is the opponent, some thoughts on her?
I’ve seen her fight, we have video on her she’s an aggressive fighter, she’s a great fighter. Records mean nothing to me, I going to train hard for every fight. I trained hard for Chantel Cordova and Cristina Fuentes is no different I’m training hard for her as well. We’re going to bang, she’s a aggressive fighter, I’m an aggressive fighter so it’s going to be a good fight.
So with the camp is there anything you’ve done different or has it been the same business at hand?
It’s pretty much been the same. We change up a little bit of my fighting every time I fight. My Coach always has something to critique after every fight and that’s what we go off of. After me fight I take a week off and then get back into training. He says “You did well but this is what you need to work on,” so there’s always a little bit of change for what I do.
Recently we been hearing about these epic training sessions between you and Amanda Crespin, what have those been like and how have they helped?
They’re brutal, we both have a similar fighting style we’re both two extremely competitive women, which with putting two women that highly competitive in the ring together, I mean you get what you see and it’s brutal we bang, we work on things we been training on and we go round after round we go. We go three minute rounds; we train more rounds than what we’re going to fight and every single time it gets better and better. She’s a great sparring partner.
