Felix Vargas and Antonio Cruz discuss their upcoming boxing tournament between the two of them.
It's about our fight, right?
I've been thinking about it too, panin. In fact, since we found out it was going to be me and you, I've been awake at night, pulling punches on you, trying not to hurt you.
Same here. It ain't natural not to think about the fight. I mean, we both are cheverote fighters and we both want to win. There ain't no draws in the eliminations.
I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, bro. But I wanna win, fair and square.
Yeah. We both know that in the ring the better man wins. Friend or no friend, brother or no...
Brother. Tony, let's promise something right here. OK?
If it's fair, hermano, I'm for it.
It's fair, Tony. When we get into the ring, it's gotta be like we never met. We gotta be like two heavy strangers that want the same thing and only one can have it. You understand, don't cha?
Si, I know. No pulling punches. We go all-out.
Yeah, that's right. Listen, Tony. Don't you think it's a good idea if we don't see each other until the day of the fight? I'm going to stay with my Aunt Lucy in the Bronx. I can use Gleason's Gym for working out. My manager says he got some sparring partners with more or less your style.
Yeah, it would be better for our heads. Deal?
And that's when the two brotherly friends decided to keep out of each other's way until their big boxing tournament.
