Barthelemy: ‘This Is the Best Camp I’ve Had Since Turning Professional’


ubP3O.So.84With one week to go until his first defense of his IBF Super Featherweight world title, Champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (20-0, 12 KOs) wraps up his final day of training camp with an intense day of sparring. Barthelemy will face challenger Fernando David Saucedo (52-2, 8 KOs) in a 12-round bout at the Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The fight will be televised live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT) as the main-event on Oct, 4, 2014.

“This is the best camp I’ve had since turning professional,” said Barthelemy. “My weight is good and I’m going to be well prepared for anything Saucedo brings. We did some things different in this camp as we added some old techniques from the Cuban School of boxing. I’m ready to show the world I’m the best Super Featherweight in the world. I want to thank Al Haymon and my entire team for all their support. I’m ready to show the world I’m the best Super Featherweight in the world.”
