this *Friday *night from the *Doubletree Hotel* in *Ontario, Calif. *

Dutchover, 20, has been sparring with reigning *WBA super bantamweight

relationship with Roman, his new found culinary skills, and what the fans
in attendance and on the LiveStream can expect from the surging prospect
this Friday night.

*You were originally scheduled to face Luis Lopez, but he dropped out last
week due to illness. The replacement fighter is Bergman Aguilar of
Nicaragua. How do you stay focused on what you need to do to win?*

“It’s one of those things that happens in boxing, especially to young guys
like myself. I don’t let it affect me. I have a new guy in front of me.
That’s how I view it. He’s in my way in what I want to accomplish, which is
to win a world title. He’s not going to stop me from getting to that point.”

*You’ve been sparring with WBA champion Danny Roman. What’s it like to
learn from one of the best?*

“Every single time I spar with Danny I learn something new. He’s a skillful
fighter. A very smart boxer. I love working with him. I’m happy to have him
in my corner. He helps me how to think through my punches. He talks to me
after we spar and we go over things. It’s great to learn from a world

*If boxing wasn’t a career option for you, what would you get yourself
into? We hear you’re developing new culinary skills.*

“I love everything related to fitness and nutrition. So I think I’d go the
nutritionist route or study to become a physical trainer. I’m already
learning a lot about nutrition. I cook my own meals. I do my own meal prep.
I’m eating a lot of lean meats and vegetables and making them taste great.
I get down in the kitchen. I’m learning how to cook on the fly and it’s
great. When I go back home to Midland [Texas] to cook for my family, they
come away very impressed.”

*How do you expect to perform on Friday night?*

“From when the first bell rings, I’m going to fight my fight. I’m not
shooting for a knockout, but if it’s there, I’ll take it. I’m in peak shape
right now. Come Friday, it’s showtime.”
