Carlos Candelario: ‘I Like KOs More Than Anything’

Carlos Candelario walks out at CES 41 (1)

Before Carlos “The Cannon” Candelario tries to improve to 6-0 against Billy Giovanella at CES 44 on May 12 in Lincoln, R.I., LIVE on AXS TV Fights, the Blue Chip prospect sat down with ProMMANow.

What’s your favorite way to win a fight?

A knockout, definitely. I have a lot of submissions too, but I like a cool KO more than anything.

When you’re driving, what are you listening to?

I listen to a lot of hood rap (laughs) — DMX, Big Pun, none of that new, mumbling stuff, though (laughs).

What are you watching on Netflix?

I like watching their documentaries and their Adam Sandler movies. I was watching “Stranger Things” a few months ago; me and my girlfriend were both really into that.

What’s your favorite post-victory meal?

I’m pretty good with dieting; I’m always eating clean, mostly, because I feel guilty if I don’t. But after a win, I definitely have a sweet tooth. I love those big cookies.

What are your goals for the rest of 2017?

Definitely keep winning. I want people to know who I am. After I win this fight, people are going to take me more seriously. I want to be seen as a serious force in this flyweight division.
