From Left to Right Mike Jones, Teon Kennedy, Jorge Arce, Jesus Rojas, Guillermo Rigondeaux and Randall Bailey pose during the press conference for their upcoming feature fights on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley which will take place, Saturday, June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, live on HBO Pay Per View.

Arce’s opponent, Rico’s Jesus Rojas (18-1-1, 13 KOs), isn’t the most threatening or high-profile foe of his career, but his grateful and lucky to fighting on Pacquiao’s undercard.

“I feel very motivated to fight on Pacquiao undercards, because I know that everyone watches Manny Pacquiao around the world, and so when I fight on his undercards, I know that everyone will be watching, and I will be able to send a message to people through a knockout or a spectacular fight, and that’s why I prepare myself intensely. I believe that on those nights, fighting under Pacquiao, nobody can beat me.”

When asked about his opponent, Jesus Rojas, What do you know about him?

“I know he is a young fighter. He comes from [Miguel] Cotto’s team. He is a talent on the rise. This kid is 25 years old and has fought as a featherweight and super featherweight also, and has won. This tells me he is physically strong. I have been watching a few of his videos, and he has a good style, with a lot of potential. I believe we could steal the show. It could be a great fight, and I’m willing to give it all for the people,” El Travieso told ESPN Deportes.

“I would like to face either Donaire or Abner Mares, because Mares is the champion of the Showtime bantamweight tournament, but I would also like to face any one of them at super bantamweight. And if I can’t get one of those fights, I would like to go up to the featherweight division to fight Salido, because I believe we could have a great fight. I am ready for the big fights, but we’ll see how I feel now in Vegas for this coming fight. I believe that after this fight, I will sit down and talk about who I would like to fight.”

Guillermo Rigondeaux (9-0, 7 KOs), 31, is set to defend his junior featherweight title against Teon Kennedy (17-1-2, 7 KOs). The two-time Cuban Olympic gold medalist will take $103,000 the highest purse he ever made.

“In a land where money’s importance is supposed to fall a firm second behind the Revolution, cash is king on Cuba’s boxing landscape, even for those who care not to admit it,” stated Rigondeaux.

    Oh well u guess I comment to soon on Bradley and not really knowing anything about his fighting career or his power but took it 4 granted b/c of a few past quick clips or him fighting as though he can really punch from they way it looks from those clips they were showing of him as though he really had punching power but I see now that I finally seen him box 4 the 1st time.”

    Arce is always fun to watch and Rigondeaux is an impressive fighter who will probably dispatch Kennedy inside of 4 rounds or dominate to a UD with a couple of knockdowns. Not big on Mike Jones personally, all around this is not a great undercard but not the worst I’ve seen. Speaking of Rigondeaux I’d like to see Donaire fight Rigondeaux toward the end of the year I think he’s the biggest challenge for him
