"I'm very grateful for this opportunity. This is going to be an important fight and it's going to be a very, very tough fight. Obviously, my opponent is a very tough fighter. It's a big stage on pay-per-view so I'm ready for this. It's going to be a tough challenge but that's what it's all about."
"I have prepared myself very well for this fight. I thank Golden Boy Promotions for giving me this opportunity, just like they did last year. I may not have the most experienced record on this card, but I can assure you that I will give 100 percent of myself for this. I'm looking forward to a great fight the day after tomorrow."
