Bethlehem, PA (April 12, 2018) - An intriguing co-feature bout that will pit hard punching cruiserweights Luther Smith (9-2, 8 KOs) of Bowie, Maryland and Elvin Sanchez (8-3-1, 6 KOs) of Paterson, NJ will take place TOMORROW NIGHT!! at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center.

Below, both Smith and Sanchez talk about the impending fight, which most boxing pundits predict will end in an knockout one way or the other.


Smith-"Everything is good. I had a full camp, and I am ready to go."

Sanchez-"Training went well. The toughest part about it is making weight, but I am good now."


Smith-"Sanchez switches a lot. I know his record and six of his eight wins are by knockout. I am not the type of guy who talks a lot. I look forward to meeting him. A lot of opponents have turned me down, so I am grateful that he is fighting me."

Sanchez-"I don't know too much about him. I know he is a tall southpaw, so I prepared for that."


Smith-"I like knockouts, But I do not go into a fight looking for one. But when the opportunity presents itself, I seize it and jump on it."

Sanchez- "I prepared very hard for this fight, so I am ready to go all six-rounds if I have to."


Smith-"This is important for me. It will be my 10th win. I started boxing at 32, and I never expected to get this far to get 10 wins."

Sanchez-"A win give me a lot of gratification. I work 2 jobs, so I do this for myself and it is fun for me."


Smith-"I want to give thanks to King's Promotions for this opportunity. I am grateful for my fans and the support they give me."

Sanchez-"I want to thank everyone who comes out to support me."
