“I stuck to our game plan. Just being smart, starting off with my jab, I was being patient. I had 10 rounds to work, there was no rush. I know he’s a strong puncher, I could feel it on my arms,” Barrios said.

“I want that world champion. I want all the smoke. I’m ready. I’ve proven it my past eight fights at 140, I’m ready for that title shot.”
