By Kunle AdewaleWorld Boxing Federation Junior Middle Weight champion, Gifted Cole Chiori, will tonight take on Jorge Burgos from Dominican Republic in a 10 round non-title fight.Cole, whose record stands at 10-0 in a telephone chat with THISDAY from his base in the United States before jetting to Dominican Republic said he was not intimidated by his opponent, promising to come out victorious at the end of the bout.“With the kind of rigorous training I have gone through, I should be able to stop him before the end of round five. I’m not underrating my opponent or being over confident, but my coach and I had perfected the strategy to stop him early after watching some tapes of Burgos previous fights,” the Ajegunle-born boxer noted.Cole said the fight would also serve as part of his preparation for his title defence later this year.“Burgos is a tested boxer and a worthy opponent any day and could be very tricky, therefore it would help in my preparation for my title defence later this year,” he saidCole defeated German opponent, Tom Reiche, to retain his Junior Middle Weight World Boxing Federation title after the referee stopped the fight in the fourth round after too much torture from the Nigerian.Tonight’s fight is billed for the city of Santiago RodriguezShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
