DEVIN "THE DREAM" HANEY, WBC SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION:

"The time is very close. It’s been a long time coming. The talking is almost done. This not an easy fight but it’s a fight that ill make look easy. I have tunnel vision and all his antics will betray him com Saturday night."


"KING" RYAN GARCIA, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER:

"I have said everything. I don't know what else I can add. What do you want me to do? I’ve already done it all and now I’m just ready to kick ass in the ring. I’m on fire. I’m strong."


ARNOLD BARBOZA, JR., SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER:

"I want to thank Oscar, Bernard and the whole Golden Boy team for putting on a great show. For doing the promoting, doing all the hard work. Next is for me. I’m excited for the opportunity to be on the card. The biggest card of the year. I think all eyes are going to be on me for our fight. Since I was 5 and a half years old just a kid from El Monte. I have a saying. I’m forever grateful but never satisfied. I want it to say instead of Haney vs. Garcia to say Barboza vs. Everybody."


BEKTEMIR "BEK" MELIKUZIEV, WBA INTERCONTINENTAL TITLEHOLDER:

"Hello everyone. Thank you so much for being here. I want to thank Oscar for this opportunity, thank Bernard for this opportunity and it’s a huge show. I’m glad to be a part of it and you know when I’m in the ring it’s Bully Time. Let’s go Saturday!"


JOHN "SCRAPPY" RAMIREZ, FLYWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:

"That’s when opportunity meets preparation. I have been boxing for 7 years. My main mission was to become a world champion. I didn’t care about the amateurs. I had to do it and I did it. But no, I’m here. I’ve been consistent and persistent chasing the dream. I sacrificed a lot. I haven’t cut corners; I’ve been disciplined, and this is the life that I chose."


CHARLES "BAD NEWS" CONWELL, SUPER WELTERWEIGHT CONTENDER:

I’m excited. I’m back in the ring after a long layoff. I prepared very and someone has to pay for that. I’m just excited to be here and let's make it happen.
