Torres: Late shorts change distracted me

Sunday, October 27, 2013

At one point Miguel Torres was the bantamweight champion and considered amongst the best pound for pound fighters in the world. Torres has now lost 7 out his last 10 bouts, included a TKO loss to Pablo Alfonso at Satuday’s World Series of Fighting 6. Torres expressed to the media that his head wasn’t quite in the fight, as a last minute distraction took him out of the moment:

Was told by WSOF I could wear my spats, got my knee brace approved by commission, felt great and was on point warming up. Was in blue corner and was already in the cage about to fight then told by ref I had to leave and change into shorts. Had to sprint 100 yards there, look for shorts, then sprint back. Was not expecting that, threw my mind off and I didn’t execute in my fight. I apologize to all my training partners and students and especially my daughter. I make no excuse and take this lose personally and with full responsibility, I am better than what I showed today. Congrats to Pablo and his team, may they enjoy their night. See everyone in the gym on Monday, so sorry everyone.
