Leroy Montoya Looking to Stay Undefeated at Legacy Amateur Series 17

Saturday night in Austin, TX, Leroy Montoya (2-0) will make his Legacy Amateur Series debut as he takes on Kevin Morin (3-3). Morin, recently won the Flyweight title for Belts of Honorius, and Montoya is undefeated and coming off of a first round submission victory back in February. This fight has all the ingredients for fight of the night, and is definitely one not to be missed. I caught up with Montoya to see what his training is like, how the weight cut is going, and how he sees this fight ending.

Mikethetruth.com: Where do you train?

Leroy Montoya: I train out of Warrior’s Edge in New Braunfels, TX.

MTT.com: What do you do outside of MMA and fighting?

Montoya: I’m either out with the kiddos, or with the family now that it’s summer.

MTT.com: You have both a TKO and submission win, how do you prefer to finish a fight?

Montoya: We train to take the fight wherever, either standing up or on the ground. This is going to be a good fight so I will be very happy with my hand being raised. It doesn’t matter how it’s done, I just want the win.

MTT.com: What’s your daily training schedule like?

Montoya: I wake up and workout in my garage before the kids wakeup. Then I spend time with the family until 7:30pm, that’s when I go and train at Warrior’s Edge with my MMA family.

MTT.com: How has the cut to 125lbs been for you?

Montoya: This weight cut has been the easiest one so far.

MTT.com: What do you know about your opponent Kevin Morin?

Montoya: I know he’s a boxer and that he’s been working on his ground game a lot more. We used to train together when I first started MMA. He used to train at Warrior’s Edge before he switched camps.

MTT.com: How do you predict this fight ending?

Montoya: I predict this fight having a lot of action in it. Fight of the Night potential for sure, but it will end with my hand being held up by the referee. It’s going to be a war.

MTT.com: What’s going through your head on fight night?

Montoya: Nothing really goes through my head on fight night. Just getting mentally ready to step foot in the cage and show my hard work. I’m relaxed the whole time.

MTT.com: What’s next for you after this fight?

Montoya: Nothing is next. I focused on this fight, I never look past an opponent.

MTT.com: Who would you like to thank for helping you prepare for this fight?

Montoya: I want to thank my coach Billy Buch, and my Warrior’s Edge family for kicking my ass day in and day out, getting me prepared for this fight. Also, Vitamin Shack for the supplements that have this weight cut the easiest yet, and all my sponsors for believing in me and having my back.
