Bandido will challenge ROH World Heavyweight Champion Rush for the title at this Sunday’s Best in the World pay-per-view event in Baltimore, Maryland at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena.
He spoke with Sports Illustrated to promote the event. Here are some of the highlights:
Getting the title shot:
“I have the heart and the courage to face great challenges. I don’t know if this will be the end of Rush’s title reign, but I am sure that I will leave my soul inside that ring. I think what characterizes Rush most in the ring is he’s so dangerous. He goes to huge levels and that’s where he finds his strength. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
The goal of becoming the champion:
“I want to do more than just have this opportunity, because I want to win it. Becoming champion is what I’ve been looking for since I got to ROH, and that is what I will keep working to do until I make it happen.”
