“I’m thrilled to be fighting once again on FS1 and FOX Deportes, especially as the main event,” said
Barrios. “I have a tough hometown fighter in Naim Nelson standing in my way. My goal is to be explosive
and give the fans a great performance. I’m very thankful for all the opportunities that have come my
way and I’m going to take full advantage of the situation come fight night.”

“I am at a different stage of my career now,” said Nelson. “I have experienced losses, but I learned you
have to keep on fighting. I am the best and most experienced guy Barrios has fought. He’s is a good fighter
and has a good coach in Virgil Hunter. He is tall and that’s what jumps out about him. But being tall is
not everything. I am training hard and I expect a great fight from him.” He makes his third appearance
on FS1 and FOX Deportes on September 19 and his first as the main event.
