When asked about the fight with the current #2, Cervantes said;
“I’m looking to prove why I’m #1 at this weight and will be for a long time.
“I’m p****d off about my last fight where I lost in America. Nothing personal, but Rob will be on the receiving end of that vented anger.”
“Fighting Juan is a big fight for me. When I first got into Muay Thai, I remember watching people like Juan and Dan Edwards fight and thinking one day I’d like to fight one of them top UK guys, and now I’m getting my chance.
Allen added, “He [Cervantes] has been #1 for a while and rightfully so, he’s a legit #1, but I believe I can beat him and I’m really excited to test myself against him.”
