“Camp has been going great. We finished everything up over the weekend, and now we are just relaxing and getting ready for Friday.”

Despite this being Mattice’s first fight in front of the camera, the 27-year-old is treating this like any other fight.

“I am going in like this is any other fight. The only difference is that this is a progression, a step up. Like all the other fights, I am just focused on getting the win.”

Mattice is letting his team do all the scouting, while he focuses on his own business of training and getting ready for the opportunity ahead of him on Friday.

“I am just letting my team handle the scouting of Chinea. We drew up a gameplan based on that, and now I am just going to go in there and execute it.”

“I just expect a great performance. For the fans that haven’t seen me, they can expect a fighter who can box and can bang. I just want everyone to tune in, and see a great fight. I have a lot of confidence that I will get the job done on Friday.”

The event is promoted by GH3 Promotions in association with Roc Nation Sports, Victory Promotions and Ringside Ticket. Tickets are just $10 general admission prior to the event and $20 on Feb. 2. For more information call: 1.800.HOT.WINN ext. 7117.
