Omar Juarez discusses June 27 return or Morrell card vs. Cazares

Undefeated super lightweight Omar “El Relámpago” Juárez shared his take on his training camp as he prepares to face All Rivera in a 10-round attraction that kicks off FOX PBC Fight Night and FOX Deportes this Sunday June 27 from The Armory in Minneapolis.

The FOX PBC Fight night begins at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT and is led by Cuban sensation and undefeated WBA super middleweight champion David O. Morrell Jr. defending his title against undefeated challenger Mario Cázares.

Tickets for the event, which is promoted by TGB Promotions and Warriors Boxing, are on sale now and can be purchased at The Armory at and through Ticketmaster.

Juarez, 21, (11-0, 5 KOs) spent that training camp in the Bay Area of ​​California, training with WBA Super Lightweight champion Mario Barrios at Virgil Hunter’s gym. Here’s what Juarez had to say about the experience and more:

On his recent training camp:

“For most of this training camp, my coach Rick Nunez and I spent our days in the Bay Area training alongside Mario Barrios and Virgil Hunter. It was quite different from training in San Antonio like we usually do because the weather is so different. Training in a colder climate took some getting used to, but we had a great camp and got some good left-handed fights. Training alongside Barrios was also inspiring as I got to see what a world class training camp looks like. My weight is good and I will be ready to fight at night.

On his next match with All Rivera:

“This will be my third fight in a row where my opponent has twice as many fights as me, so I know how dangerous this fight is. I never wanted easy fights and expect Rivera to be at his best. These are the types of fights that will push me and make me a better fighter. I know he has a lot of power and his experience will be a challenge. I am confident that I will be able to make the right adjustments once I get in the ring with him. This is going to be another big fight for me and I can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve been working on.

On the fights on FOX Sunday:

“The exposure I had while fighting on FOX has been incredible. Every young fighter always dreams of fighting on the big stage, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be a staple on FOX or FS1 for most of my career. I am very grateful to my management team for this opportunity and that all of my fans at my home in Brownsville, TX can connect. It’s prime-time Sunday, so you know I’ll come out with my fists in the air.
