Here, alongside Jason Quigley and world champions Oscar Valdez and Jessie Magdaleno, he is deep in preparations for his professional debut on St Patrick’s Day.
Here he will top the bill at the Theater at Madison Square Garden against Tim Ibarra and, judging by the below video, the Colorado super bantamweight is going to feel the power.
