Edison “Pantera” Miranda
I’ve been hearing what he’s been saying on the Internet. I want him to know this is not Africa with lions and tigers. This is ESPN.
This fight won’t last five rounds.
I’ve fought so many great fighters. Give me one name of who you have fought. He hasn’t fought anybody. I’m going to destroy him.
I feel sorry for all the other light heavyweights in the world.
Isaac “The Golden Boy” Chilemba
I’m looking forward to the fight.
I was supposed to fight next week on the Berto/Ortiz undercard when my manager told me about the opportunity to take on Edison Miranda on ESPN. I was very excited.
We have the game plan to beat Edison and I can’t wait to start exchanging punches with him.
I’m going to show the world this guy (Abdusalamov) is not such a badass and I’m going to show the world what I can do tomorrow night.
“Mago” Magomed Abdusalamov
I will do the same thing to this opponent that I did the last time I was here. Watch what I did to Rich Power. That’s what I’m going to do to him.
Hylon “Suave” Williams
I know he’s very well prepared well, but so am I.
Thanks to my opponent for taking the fight, a lot of people have wanted to see this fight for a long time and tomorrow, we will put on a great show.
Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy
My trainer, Miguel Diaz is the best in boxing. I haven’t stopped training since my last fight.
I’ve already beaten one undefeated fighter and tomorrow night, I’m going to do it again.
Topping the all-action undercard will be “can’t miss” Puerto Rican super middleweight prospect Roberto Jose Acevedo (2-0, 1 KO) in a four-round showcase fight against Las Vegas resident Velvet Malone (0-3).
Other bouts scheduled include a noteworthy six-round super featherweight tussle between Igrim, Russia’s undefeated Eveny Gradovich (11-0, 6 KOs) and Las Vegas’ Robert Osiobe (11-3-4, 6 KOs); a four-round junior welterweight match-up between Vegas residents Cameron Kreal (0-0-2) and Jesus Gutierrez (1-0, 1 KO); and Puerto Rico’s Juan Carlos Velasquez (10-1, 5 KOs) in a six-round super featherweight bout against TBA.
