In interview, Hernandez said:
“They have been difficult moments. The covid caught us all by surprise. Some of us decided to continue working, take care of ourselves as much as possible and move on, others did functions without an audience to take care of them, pBut we continue with the commitments in the ring.
“Nonetheless, many of us had to get used to training at home. With everything closed, the gyms included, we had to change the routines, at least to keep ourselves in shape.
Like so many other fighters, his schedule was altered.
“There were around 10 functions in the year of the pandemic. We continue to work hard to do our best. In the defenses of the NERW Revival Championship I left everything, always analyzing my opponent, to know and find suitable strategies. Each of them had a strength that I had to counteract ”.
El Tigre hopes that 2021 will be a year of more challenges:
“I keep preparing myself. Besides working on keys and techniques, I am very analytical for encounters, and I like to study the opponent ”.
