Here's what the fighters had to say:


"When the contract came to fight Nery, I was so thankful! I thought, finally the time has come. I've waited 3 1/2 years for this opportunity. I respect Nery, but in 10 days it will be war. I think I will win.

"Even though I am not fighting in Armenia, people will feel the strong Armenian presence at the fight. I am proud to represent both Armenia and Los Angeles."


"I came from the bottom. Everyone told me I was too old to start my career boxing. But I did it my way and now I'm the main event for a Golden Boy show. It's real simple. Work hard and stay focused and you can accomplish anything. I'm all in."


"I learned a lot from my last fight, especially paying more attention to what my trainer is telling me to do during the fight. I deviated from the plan and the fight didn't go my way. I took two weeks off after my loss and I got back into the gym. It's boxing. I'm glad to be back on Feb. 18 and show fans that I am back."
