Recently I had the chance to talk with Ricky Villafuerte who will be facing Adrian Lopez on Saturday, March 30, 2013, at the Johnny Tapia Presents the Next Chapter 3. Which will take place at the Crowne Plaza at 1901 University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

MF: How you feeling coming into this fight?

RV: I’m starting to feel strong this time. Like I’m better prepared, I got a little more time to work on my skills. I got more time to work on my diet and drop that weight and my body is feeling good. I’m feeling great, feeling powerful.  I’m ready and looking forward to the fight; ready to get it over with.

MF: We had been talking about your last fight;’ which was your pro debut against Siju Shabazz and it was a fight that you took on how much notice?

RV: I only had a week and half so basically it kind of killed me. I was up to 196 lbs. and I dropped 15 lbs. in a week. I starved myself hit the sauna and did everything wrong. I killed myself and burned myself out. This time I’m dieting and doing it smart so I feel a lot better this time.
