“Training has gone great and I am super motivated,” said Maicelo.

He knows he will be fighting a tough guy in Bennett and has praise for the Cincinnati native.

“I respect every fighter. I have seen a few of his fights in tape and he is a good fighter from what I see. With that being said, I am better the fighter and on Friday, I will prove that.”

“Even though I lost to Perez, I took it as a big learning experience. I learned a lot and Friday, It will show. I was just in camp with Danny Garcia and I been super motivated.”

Maicelo isn’t a fighter who wants to be protected and babied to get back to contention, he wants to earn it by fighting top quality opposition.

“Fighting a guy like Bennett are the fights that I want. I want to show that I can beat guys with good records. I imagine that he feels the same way. I am sure he knows that I am no pushover and that he is in for a tough fight.”

The 32 year-old is steadfast that being in a hard 12-round title fight will make all the difference on Friday.

“I feel that I have all the experience. I have fought the tougher guys. I been at the world class level and that will be the difference. I just want to tell all my fans from Peru and here that I will give 100 %. It has nothing to do with Bennett but Friday night, I will be victorious.”
