Gomez said that he had a great training camp and that he had top notch sparring. He doesn’t believe that his 13 month ring absence will cause him to get out to a slow start.
“Honestly I don’t see myself being rusty. It might show up a little but being that I had great sparring – I had tough sparring with Raymond Beltran, Julian Rodriguez, I sparred Shawn Porter one time. I sparred a guy who is fighting on my undercard.
I sparred Felix Diaz who everybody is saying beat Lamont Peterson. I got some great rounds and I don’t really see how ring rust would show up,” Gomez told on Thursday.
As for his opponent – Sosa, who is from Puerto Rico – Gomez doesn’t feel that he is on his level. Sosa was stopped in hos last fight by Alan Sanchez and hasn’t faced the same caliber of opposition as Gomez.
The Bronx, New York native feels that the difference in experience and level of opposition will prove to be a key factor in the fight.
