HELENA -

In the midst of a career spanning over 20 years with over 100 victories, Mexican boxer Yory Boy Campas is in Montana getting ready for his upcoming fight against Mikhail Lyubarsky. With his fight in just under two weeks, he's been preparing in Three Forks with his long time trainer and translator Joe Diaz.

"We take advantage of the hills, number one," said Diaz. "We take advantage in the snow it's a cushion. It's healthier when you do roadwork. And chopping lumber, we got plenty of it. Logs, tires, and shoveling sand and gravel that's all part of what we normally do."

Yory Boy is able to train in Montana doing his usual routines, but the environment and people are what makes this area so special to him.

"If ever he moved his family from Mexico. He'd be thinking of Montana because He likes the atmosphere," said Diaz.

And even with the conditions and perfect training environment, that's not the only reason Yory Boy and Joe chose Montana to do their training.

"I want to make a prediction," said Diaz. "Our intentions, that's another thing, is to make this the boxing capital. We want to  have an international camp that all the top fighters in the world come here to train at our place."

Some lofty goals for Yory Boy and Joe, but you can be sure, as of now, their focus is all on their fight on April 5th.
