Benny Henderson Jr.: You were set to
face Sanchez this upcoming weekend, but now you will be slated to
face late replacement Emmanuel Lucero, your thoughts on the
Joel Diaz Jr.: It’s just part
of the game. In my last few fights all of my opponents have changed
at the last minute. I’m used to it.
BH: What about the fighting styles,
you were in camp for another fighter, but now will be facing another
foe, do you feel the last minute replacement will throw you off your
game plan a bit?
JD: Since these last minute
changes are happening a lot, so I’m always training with different
styles. So the changes are not that big of deal. I’m ready to get
in the ring with anyone who steps up. I’m confident in my skills
to compete with the best.
BH: You are stepping in with a guy
who has faced the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Rocky Juarez, Ponce De
Leon, losing efforts, but losses to some tough cats. So give the
readers your thoughts on your opponent.
JD: Lucero is a tough opponent
who has a lot of experience. I know when I step in the ring with
him, he’s going to bring something different then what I’ve seen.
Fighting a guy like Lucero will only get me better and prepare me
for bigger fights down the road. This is a good step up for me.
BH: Your keys to victory?
JD: I’ve been working on a lot
of different things in the gym with my trainer Able Sanchez and we
are going to fight smart and bring a lot of pressure.
BH: What do you feel separates you
from the other fighters in your division?
JD: I’m one of those guys who
doesn’t care who I fight. I’ll step in the ring with anyone. A
lot of fighters today get brought up soft with handpicked opponents.
I’m fighting anyone who comes my way.
BH: What can the fight fans expect
from you come fight night?
JD: A lot of excitement and a
crowd pleasing style.
BH: What do you feel are your
greatest qualities as a fighter?
JD: My will to win and my
BH: Any message you would like to
send out to your upcoming opponent?
JD: Be ready because I’m
going to be coming hard!
BH: Anything in closing?
JD: Yeah I want to thank
Boxing360, my promoter Mario Yagobi. He’s been keeping me busy and
he’s working on some big fights for me coming up. To all my fans
