The 23-year-old prodigy Andres “Crocodile” Campos, 9-0 fresh off a Las Vegas training camp with Australia’s Moloney Twins has earned the number 12 position in the World Boxing Organisation’s Flyweight ratings.

The undefeated WBO Latino and WBA Fedebol Flyweight champion opens up about entering the World ratings, what it means to him and the future.

“Firstly I would like to thank President (WBO) Paco Varcarcel, El Patron my manager Tony Tolj and my promoter Nico ‘Maverick’ Martinez for believing in me and making everything possible.

“I’ve spent the last 5 weeks in Las Vegas, with Andrew and Jason Moloney and Jesse Rosales. They are all World class boxers and I’m learning more and more everytime. This was the best camp I have been a part of, I believe I have gone to another level.

“I know I need to be training and competing with this level of boxer. I’m now number 12 in the WBO Flyweight division and the World Title is vacant

“Our team in Chile we call the latino Wolf Pack is getting better and better everytime. Mascareña, Mederos, Cruzat and my Argentine brother Augustin Gauto.

“I am determined to because the first Chilean World Boxing Champion and bring hope to our country during this crazy time.”

Campos was the chief sparring partner for the Moloney twins as they both made their Top Rank debuts in ‘The Bubble’ recently.

Andrew suffered his first career loss to Joshua Franco and will face him in a bid to become a two-time World champion after he triggered his rematch clause.

Jason Moloney however had a much more memorable trip. Dominating and retiring his opponent, Leonardo Baez inside seven rounds.

With a taste for the Las Vegas bright lights and big fights Campos will certainly be hoping to be headlining his own show in ‘Sin City’ for the first time in the near future.
