Petr Petrov (36-4-2, 17 KO’s) has been training hard for his showdown with Marvin Quintero (28-6, 24 KO’s) that will take place on Friday, May 6 at The Toshiba Plaza on the Las Vegas Strip. Petrov took time out from his training schedule at the Santa Springs Boxing Club in Sante Fe, California to provide the following comments as he gets ready for this big opportunity:
“Camp is going great. We have had eight great weeks sparring. This is the best training camp I have had in all of my camps.
“He is a good boxer. He is a southpaw who has a lot of experience. He is a slick fighter, but I am experienced as well, and I am ready for anything.”
“This will get us the NABF title and get me ranked in the WBC, so this is the next step to getting closer to a world title.”
“It’s a big event weekend. We know there there will be a lot of media and fight fans there. I am a fan friendly fighter, and it comes down to putting on a great show in front of all the boxing people in attendance.”
“I am 100% ready to get the victory on May 6th. We have to win this fight, and we will be ready for anything else that comes after.”
Banner Promotions President, Arthur Pelullo stated “We are very much looking forward to Petr having a great performance on May 6th and that will catapult him to the big opportunity that he has worked very hard to get.”
With 36 victories under his belt, lightweight contender Petr “Zar” Petrov holds an impressive boxing resume, included winning ESPN’s 2014 Boxcino Lightweight tournament. Petrov was last seen in April 2015 taking on former world champion Gamaliel “Platano” Diaz where he successfully defended his NABO and NABA Lightweight Titles via unanimous decision. As the current NABA Lightweight Title holder, Petrov will be looking to add another notable title to his name when he faces Quintero on May 6th.
