FRANKIE “PITBULL” GOMEZ, Undefeated Welterweight Prospect: “It’s been a great experience working with Freddie Roach. I’ve had a lot of great sparring sessions. I’ve learned how to step into the punches, throw better body shots, move the head after you throw punches. “I feel blessed for Freddie to think and say that I am one of the most talented guys he is training right now. It makes me want to work harder. “I feel very prepared for this fight. I have been sparring with great fighters, Ruslan Provodnikov, Viktor Postol and Miguel Cotto. I feel strong. All the fans will enjoy my fight, not only will it be entertaining but I will get to showcase my skills set. “I don’t like boxing, I love it. I plan to stay in the gym 24/7. It’s going to be different now.”
