Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo knows his upcoming fight has bigger stakes than winning the vacant WBO Youth Featherweight title – a possible showdown with world ranked American Chris Avalos.
But he is not looking forward to it yet, as his attention is on his current task, Eduardo Montoya.
“100% na handa ako sa laban at prineprepare talaga namin to,” Magsayo told Tiebreaker Times about his preparation for his upcoming fight with “Fierita” during the weigh-ins earlier today at the Robinson’s Galleria Cebu, “tinignan ko na yung mga fights niya at nakita ko at sa tingin ko kaya ko to kasi matagal na siya sa pro pero medyo mabagal konti yung mga suntok niya. Nakikita ko yung mga suntok niya kaya madali ko ito macocounteran.”
Though he sees his advantages over the Mexican, he knows they do not mean a sure victory for him. Rather, they are openings that he seeks to capitalize on once they enter the ring.
“Hindi muna tayo magsasabi ng ganyan kasi mahirap na, baka sabihin mayabang tayo, ganun,” he shared when asked about any predictions of his fight.
“Ang sakin lang, kapag may nakita tayong oportunidad na maknockout siya, knockoutin na natin.”
As for Avalos, in what will probably be the biggest fight to date if it materializes, Magsayo knows that there will be a time for it once his he gets past his Pinoy Pride 35 opponent.
“Wala muna. Di ko muna iniisip yun. Tinignan ko na yung mga laban niya pero sinabi ko sa sarili ko ito muna ang pagtutuunan ko ng pansin. Pagkatapos nito, bago siya.”
“Pagtutuunan ko ng pansin ang ngayon,” the young buck closed.
