In the wake of defeating Kim before a worldwide crowd, the sky's the utmost for Beltran – initially from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico – who dropped in Thursday's battle stacked up No. 9 in the World Boxing Council (WBC). He's keeping a watchful eye on whatever remains of the field, beginning Saturday night on the undercard of the Pacquiao-Marquez battle when IBF planet lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez safeguards his title in opposition to unbeaten challenger Mercito Gesta.
“I can be looking at,” Beltran declared. “I need my shot. Sturdy warriors get out the best me and now I need to do whatever it takes to battle the best.”
Included Burchfield: “We’ll challenge anybody in the 135-pound division, if its Vazquez, Gesta, Richard Abril or Adrien Broner. We’ve viewed direct what Ray is skilled for the purpose of within the ring. Not a soul on earth worked harder, and, at this very moment, there's not a more unsafe warrior in this weight class.”
