Benny Henderson Jr.: You have your third professional fight coming up this Friday against Jason Horak, give the readers your thoughts on that match-up.
Will Campuzano: To be honest, I am not really worried about anything. He can grapple, I fair pretty well against grapplers.
BH: I have seen you fight in the amateurs and in the pros, and I feel that you have a lot of great strengths, but what do you feel are your greatest strengths?
WC: Everybody knows that I am a striker, a lot of people do not know but I am good on the ground as well. I would rather duke it out and trade than grapple, but I can do either.

WC: That he is a grappler, that is pretty much it.
BH: What was it like stepping in the cage as a pro compared to the amateurs?
WC: You seen my first pro fight at the Horseshoe?
BH: Yes I was there.

BH: Why did you become a fighter?
WC: To be honest, I have the Mexican background and I grew up watching boxing, and I always knew that I would be some kind of prize fighter. I always thought that I was going to be a boxer, but there were no boxing gyms around my town. But we had a MMA gym and it went on from there.
BH: There have been a lot of great Mexican fighters in the boxing world.
WC: Yes there has, for my second fight I used some pretty good boxing that you would probably like, it is on You Tube, check it out. I am really a laid back kind of fighter, I will prey on my opponents then explode.
BH: What has it been like working with Ring Rulers and Cage Kings?
WC: It has been good, they have been really good to me. They have always managed to find me good opponents and they have helped me a lot with my development as a fighter.
BH: Who are some of the guys you try to emulate in the ring or cage?
WC: Boxing wise there are a lot of guys like De La Hoya, Marquez. MMA, there are a lot as well, I like to take a little from everyone in the MMA.
BH: What can the fight fans expect from you come October 10th?
