There’s motivation behind CFA interim champion Sean Soriano (7-0) who defends his title for the first time against undefeated Elvin Brito (7-0).

Soriano said he heard Brito’s camp made a comment in regards to Soriano’s past victory.

“I heard a comment from his camp saying that I laid and prayed to a win,” he said. “I want to shut them up.”

Soriano defeated Victor Delgado at CFA 09 Night of Champions by unanimous decision to earn the title.

He said he caught a little of Delgado’s fight.

“I was warming up during his fight,” he said. “I saw clips of it online. He did a pretty good job. He controlled the fight.”
