Vera On Cutting Weight:
--“Cutting that much weight and performing was the problem,” he explained. “I didn’t think it was gonna be, but I hadn’t cut weight in nine years.”

Vera On His Opponent, Keith Jardine:
--“He’s got great hands and a super awkward style,” Vera said. “An unorthodox, offbeat style; that’s a problem for almost every fighter. But it’s just something we’ve been working on in the game plan. Just making sure I execute the game plan that’s been set forth by my coaches.”


--“Nobody ever respected him or gave him the time of day until he started putting people to sleep,” Vera said. “I’m glad I didn’t do the same before I have to fight him. I just look at him as somebody that could knock me out. So I’ve got to be on my p’s and q’s.”

I really don't care for either of these guys. But the match--up is certainly a nice fit. I'm hoing for a first round double KO.

I would love to see the Vera of old show up and see Jardine get KTFO but i have this fear that Grag Jackson (the king of the gameplan) will have Jardine well prepared for this fight.

Also, a loss for Keith would 3 in his last 4 fights, so maybe he will just want that win a bit more.
