JERMELL CHARLO, USBA Junior Middleweight Champion
"Fighting in D.C. is an awesome feeling because I feel like I am fighting in front of President Obama in our Nation's Capitol. It's a great experience and I am enjoying every little bit so far. I am happy to be welcomed to this city and the weather is not affecting me. I am here to put on a show and be victorious on Saturday.
"It's exciting to be fighting on this SHOWTIME card, the first on of the year. Last year I was the first fight on SHOWTIME EXTREME and this year I am the first fight on SHOWTIME. It is a great feeling.
"I know Gabriel Rosado is a tough fighter. I just need to be ready to fight. Training camp was excellent. I am just ready for Saturday to get this over with and move on with the rest of my career.
"Doing these shoots, is part of making boxing a career. I've been here before.. At the end of the day we might be able to make even more of a professional career of being in front of the lights and on TV.''
