Juan Carlos Burgos (30-1-2, 20 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico looks to unseat undefeated Mikey Garcia (33-0, 28 KOs) on Saturday, Jan. 25. The fight will be televised live from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, on HBO Boxing After Dark® beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
The final press conference for the Garcia vs. Burgos fight was held on Thursday afternoon, and here’s a collection of quotes and photos.
Here is what Juan Carlos Burgos had to say at the final press conference at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill from NYC.
“I recognize the challenge I have in front of me, but I have prepared well and I am confident I will get the victory.”
“I am not here to try and see if I can beat Mikey Garcia. I am here to win.”
“I came back to New York to clean the slate and get what is mine, the WBO world title.”
“We have a great game plan in place and its just a matter of executing it and taking advantage of our strengths.”
Mikey Garcia was of course confident and focused on the fight, and was also asked about various other issues, including a potential fight against Manny Pacquiao down the line and his growing status as a young star in the sport.
