Guam - Ronnie Borja and Kyle Reyes are set to square off in PXC 32 this Saturday at the U.O.G Field House. Reyes has been out of the fight game for the last couple of years but says he's been active and is excited to get out there and fight in front of the home crowd. Kyle and Ronnie have some history behind them and will look to get it handled come fight night.
Reyes said, "It was a few years back and I guess Ronnie has been wanting to fight me for a while and I've been hearing it and it was actually supposed to happen at one point but it didn't and now it is going to happen professionally in the cage. This is what he wanted and it's time to do what we are supposed to do. I actually think this is a good fight for me in my come back because Ronnie is a tough dude and he's coming off of 2 losses and he's hungry for that "W" and I'm coming back from being gone for 2 years and I'm hungry. I'm excited and I'm hyped and I really want to fight and I'm ready for whatever comes. I know Ronnie is going to want to stand and bang and I'm ready for that and if it goes to the ground I hope he has been training a lot on the ground because if I do see any opportunity to get that W from a submission I'm going to take it all the way."
Ronnie Borja has been busy with the fight game proving to be one of the best fighters on island. Borja is coming off two tough losses but is now focused on putting on a good show against Reyes.
He said, "Just more submissions, stand is no problem because my coach has been pushing me from the day we found out we were fighting another local guy. He's hungry and were going to show the island who's the next contender at 145-pounds so this is the next line up right here. We are the two youngest guys in this bracket so we are going to let it all go at the night of the fights. What I have been doing to prepare for him is more ground because I know he's well rounded and I know he is going to come hard in the fight. I know he's been out for a little bit and I know he's hungry, so I'm just going to give him everything I have on that night of the fight."
