OMAR "PANTERITA' FIGUEROA, WBC Lightweight Champion
"One difference between when Belmontes and I used to fight and now is that I'm a full-grown man. Now, I have the size advantage. I've sparred with the likes of Amir Khan, Tim Bradley, the late Edwin Valero and Julio Diaz. Working with them has helped me cover all my bases and now I'm a world champion.
"Jerry's been talking forever about fighting me. But it hasn't just been a one-way street. I've been wanting to fight him, too, since the amateurs. Believe me, it got to the point where I would have settled just to spar a few rounds with him. I'm very vengeful when it comes to boxing.
"On Saturday, I'm looking…Continue
The Oscar De La Hoya vs Richard Schaefer rift is real. Oscar has reached out to Bob Arum to do business but Richard wants no parts of it. It sounds like Richard is getting a little worked up about the whole boss things too. This is an excerpt he had with the LA times. Check it out below......

KEITH THURMAN, WBA Interim Welterweight World Champion
"What excites me most is being in the main event. They could have put me on other cards as a co-feature, but this shows me respect and I want to thank Golden Boy for that.
"Every fighter has to take it one fight at a time, and I'm going in Saturday to do my job.
"Diaz had some great performances against Shawn Porter and he gave Amir Khan a great fight. Diaz is a former world champion. They say he's a veteran with a lot of experience. But I'm 25 and have been at this for 18 years, so I'm a veteran, too.
