Jason Sosa is very strong, is motivated, wants to win and he can fight all of the twelve rounds. It will be a hard fight. That I know.

I think in the 2020 Olympics there will be a lot more [professional] fighters because they will have a lot of time to prepare. But, I do not think the big stars in boxing, like [Manny] Pacquiao and [Floyd] Mayweather, will take the risks in the Oly[...]
"[For] this Olympics, 2016, I don't think it would be a wise idea for any professional who just heard the news and would run to the Olympic games right now. I think there needs to be more time to prepare for it,"
"Every fight has challenges,". "I looked at some video of my opponent who fought Lee Selby. In the middle of that fight my opponent did a transition and fought with a different type of style against Selby. These are the situations you must deal with[...]
