Here is what the fighters had to say

JOSHUA FRANCO, Super Flyweight Prospect:

"I'm always working hard. I like training with Robert Garcia in Riverside. He has a lot of experience and I know working with him will get me far. In my training, I'm starting to feel more patient.

"In the gym, I spar with many world champions. I've sparred with Carlos Cuadras, and I gained some confidence through that. I've been sparring more and running more this training camp."

HECTOR TANAJARA, JR., Lightweight Prospect:

"I'm very excited to be fighting at the Belasco as the co-main event on Friday. It feels great to be this young in my career at 7-0 promoted by Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. I've worked very hard to be here, and I hope everyone comes out to enjoy the fight."

RYAN GARCIA, Lightweight Prospect:

"I'm not going to let my head get big. I am going to keep working hard and stay humble. My family's all about boxing so that's what I am surrounded by.

"You never know who you're going to face so I'm always sparring. I just want to fight.

"It's special to fight at the Belasco Theater because I've seen other guys fight there and rise up.

"My style now is about pacing myself more, which is different from competing in the amateurs. In the pros, you take your time and don't rush things. It's a change of pace.

"I've boxed my whole life and I know some fights you can't get the knockout so if I don't get it, that's fine."

DAVID MIJARES, Super Lightweight Prospect:

"My opponent can box and put on pressure, but I'll be looking to exploit his experience and learn something from this fight on Feb. 3. This will be my first six round fight.

"It's going to be action packed on Friday, don't miss a great fight."

JONATHAN NAVARRO, Super Lightweight Prospect:

"I feel really good ahead of this fight on Feb. 3. I am always getting contacted by my fans, on email, on Instagram asking for when my next fight is and how to buy tickets. Come watch my fight, you'll see a great knockout."

LUIS FELICIANO, Super Lightweight Prospect:

"Training camp has been a great experience. I've getting a lot of different types of sparring, different styles.

"This fight on Feb. 17 at LA FIGHT CLUB will show people what I'm made of and for the crowd in LA to see me, it will bring a lot of exposure."

JAVIER MARTINEZ, Featherweight Prospect:

"Finally the moment is here when I get to start my boxing career on Feb. 17 at LA FIGHT CLUB. I'm very excited to be at this point."
