Rising undefeated 122-pound fighter Victor Pasillas – currently ranked No. 8 by the WBA – recently shared insight into his training camp ahead of his showdown with fellow unbeaten Super Bantamweight contender Ra’eese Aleem.
This is going to be an all-out war and I can’t wait. I’m coming to knock his ass out. – Vic “Vicious” Pasillas
The two fighters are scheduled to clash for the interim WBA Super Bantamweight title Saturday, January 23 live on Showtime in a Premier Boxing Champions event from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
The event is promoted by Mayweather Promotions and TGB Promotions.

The 28-year-old Pasillas (15-0, 8 KOs) is a highly-renowned amateur who hails from Los Angeles, Calif., and his September 2020 six-round demolition of then unbeaten Ranfis Encarnacion catapulted him firmly into the championship picture at Super Bantamweight. The boxer-puncher, who currently lives and trains in the Bay Area, surgically dismantled Encarnacion in a bout contested at Featherweight.
With a victory on January 23, Pasillas positions himself for a world title shot, potentially against the winner of that night’s main event which features WBO 122-pound champion Angelo Leo against unbeaten rising star Stephen Fulton Jr.
Pasillas remains respectful of Aleem’s skillset, while also being resolute about the eventual outcome of what projects to be one of the best fights scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.
“I keep telling everyone that this fight is going to steal the show. I’m ready to put a beating on him and have the world witness a major beatdown. You have two pit bulls who are going to leave everything in the ring, and this pit bull will not be denied. This is going to be an all-out war and I can’t wait. I’m coming to knock his ass out.
Pasillas credited parring partners Eros Correa and Arnold Dinong with his preparedness for Aleem (17-0, 11 KOs), and he shared some thoughts on his outlook once he prevails in the upcoming eliminator bout.
“Because this fight is for the WBA interim title, when I beat Aleem, it’s going to put me next in line to fight for the regular world title, so this fight means everything to me. I’m going to eliminate Aleem from the path, and I won’t stop until I become the unified champion at 122-pounds.
