TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Robert Jr., 25, is a graduate of Bowsher High School.
Before the fight he spoke about his preparation and confidence that he would come through with a win.
"This performance I'm gonna put on is gonna be one of my best performances," said Robert Jr.
At his final pre-fight press conference Friday, he said he'll spend the next week clearing his mind.
"I get nervous probably right before the bell rings, that's the only time I get nervous," said Robert Jr. "When the bell sounds that's when I just zone out and it's like a tunnel vision, and I hear or feel nothing, I just do what I do best."
His best is undefeated. Robert Jr. says the hundreds of Toledo supporters behind him is the reason he gives 110 percent.
"So I can fulfill my dreams, and to let them see that it's possible if you are dedicated and you have a dream to keep working for it," said Robert Jr.
Included in that support system is his father and coach, Robert Sr., who was also a boxer.
"Always a natural thing is a father, coach comes second," said Robert Sr.
Robert Sr. says he's so proud of his son and all of his hard work.
"Just to know people are here supporting him is a beautiful thing," said Robert Sr.
