What a crazy weigh in! We got a surprise appearance from Andre Ward, two reporters almost got in a fight, Mikey Garcia was first fighter to enter the arena, Bob Arum smiled when i said Karceno's name, no internet or phone reception, one of the Tecate girls almost followed me home! lmao....
No but seriously have to thank Bob Arum, Robert Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Team Swag, Gabriel Rosado, Russel Peltz, David Klayman (Producer,Editor,and Director of the Gabriel Rosado 's Shock the World biography),Exo of Pound 4 Pound, , Gennady Golovkin, Andre Ward, Christina reporter for Top Rank, Anna Dragost, Frankie Gavin, Vallery Gavin, MSG staff, Micheal Buffer, Jason Sargus, Rocky Martinez
, Felix Vardejo, Juan Burgos, Julio Caesar Chavez Sr and anyone i may have missed for respect kindness and opportunity to do my job!
Now let's get down to business!
Great vibe came from Mikey Garcia, he is in top condition and during are interview stated "let Salido be as aggressive as he wants" hinting to me that he has a solid game plan to execute on the 19th.
Robert Garcia, gave us a colorful raw interview where he states that Pavlik will not wait for Andre Ward, Nonito Donaire wants to fight Mares and should fight Mares "it will be an easy fight." Robert Garcia also explained exactly what he would do if Victor Ortiz ever wanted his services again as a Coach! "I'll give him a left hook before anything" Robert stated, which we all know they had bad blood in the past. He assures us that the promoters of Brandon Rios and management handles the match making but gave us his point of view to what he would do in this situation as a promoter for Brandon Rios!
Gabriel Rosado is very focused and isn't gonna let this opportunity pass him by, you can tell he will leave it all in the ring! On the other side Gennady Golovkin is less active at the press conference stays more stationary and relaxes like he is at the park listening to the birds fly and wind in the trees always smiling, but don't let
that fool you he is ready and focused to make a point, he has repeatedly stated he wants to knock out Rosado before 6 to 8 rounds!
Bob Arum was there before anyone, i was able to get the third interview of the day! He gave some good insights on Brandon Rios future if defeating Alvarado for the second time. One name he did speak on as a possible future fight was Timothy Bradley, and let us know a very brief update on are long lost buddy Joshua Clottey, also he said a few interesting things about Adrian Broner!
Andre Ward made his appearance and the room was shocked, i was a little but it makes perfect sense. Exo of pound for pound follow Wards career and knows his passion for wanting to be an announcer one day! perfect thing to do when your in therapy for a shoulder capsule. Andre Ward assured m
e that his shoulder rehab is going well and that he doesn't know when he will be back for certain or how long this will last and stated that he also doesn't know about fighting Pavlik we just have to sit back and let that shoulder heal!
