New York super lightweight Steven Galeano squares off with Mohamed Mimoune on the Wednesday Night Fights co-main event live on ProBox TV tomorrow evening in Kissimmee, Florida.
Galeano (12-0, 9 KOs) gets back to action after a year outside the ring where he knocked out David Morales inside two rounds. He heads into tomorrow’s 10 round duel with the much more experienced Frenchman who formally held the European and IBO titles.
Despite flying slightly under the radar, Galeano’s services have been acquired by none other than one of this generation's most technically gifted fighters, Vasyl Lomachenko.
“I was with him for two camps.” Galeano said to ProBox TV. “One of them was for four weeks, the other for five weeks. I learnt a lot working for him, but what I realised was how important the small details were. Just small things, they seem to make a huge difference at a high level. He taught me a lot of things that will help me win big fights like this one. It has shown me where I need to go to get to the next level. It’s just the high IQ and boxing ability he has, just being with him has taken my whole game and confidence to another level. Being in his camp multiple times allowed me to soak up all that knowledge he has. Being with him and his team was just a whole different experience. It was so valuable.
“I was with them for the [Masayoshi] Nakatani fight and the Jermaine Ortiz fight. He did invite me back for the Devin Haney fight but unfortunately I couldn’t make it because I was getting a new job opportunity. There were some great little technical things I added to my game that I never would have thought of before. I picked up some great tricks that I’ve incorporated into my own game. It’s got me ready for tomorrow night.”
