Here is what Acosta had to say about his recent training camp, his upcoming matchup with Medina, fighting on FOX Deportes, and more.
 
On his recent training camp:
 
“Being that this is going to be one of my toughest fights, I’ve taken my training to the next level. I had some great sparring and I’m in excellent shape, fully prepared to put on a great show. My strength and conditioning was fantastic, I’m ready to go.
 
On his upcoming fight with Richard Medina:
 
“Medina is a fighter, like me, with only one loss. He’s coming into this fight with something to prove. This is going to be an all-action fight because we both need to keep winning to get to the next level in this division. I’m expecting him to be in great shape, so I’m prepared to go the full eight rounds.”
 
On making his Fox Deportes television debut:
 
“Fighting on Fox will be a great opportunity for me to get some televised exposure. I have a lot of family and friends that will be tuning in. It’s always important to put on exciting fights on TV, so I’ll be letting my hands go. This will not be a boring fight, that I can assure.”
 
On what a win will do for his career:
 
“A win against Medina will help me get to a bigger fight at super featherweight. Since I’ve moved down from lightweight, I feel the difference and I’m much bigger and stronger. A tremendous amount of doors will open up with a victory.”
