Andre Galvao is one of the favorites for the medium heavy weightclass at the Pan (see our predictions and picks). He guarantees that he will be coming in great shape and is ready to beat Romulo Barral. In the past few weeks, his Atos Team has been reinforced by the arrival of JT Torres and Keenan Cornelius from Team Lloyd Irvin. This is what Galvao had to say about his new pupil Keenan Cornelius: 

“I think that he is a very smart fighter and is creative. He is a great guy, who knows what he wants and is very dedicated. He is really helping our team. I feel that he is happy here with us.”

About teaching him:

“We are polishing some details in his Jiu-Jitsu. He is learning a big amounts of important details, despite already being a champion. And I also learned some tricks with him like some steps that he does when passing the guard, and the way he stomps the opponent’s leg. I’ll include these things in my game. We always exchange some information after practice. The kid is a beast.”
