Guerrero, Aydin Promise Fireworks at The HP Pavilion

QUOTES FROM TODAY'S ROBERT GUERRERO VS. SELCUK AYDIN PRESS CONFERENCE IN SAN JOSE, CALIF.

Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, Former Three-Division World Champion

"Selcuk is coming to the United States and he wants to prove a point. He's an unknown Turkish guy who was ducked by Floyd Mayweather and now he's coming to fight and make a huge statement. This is his chance for him to prove to American boxing fans that he's the real deal.

"I have to be ready for a guy like this. He is trying to creep up on me and shock the world. He's one of those tough guys that tries to knock everyone out, which makes for a really exciting fight, and I'll be ready.

"I know this is going to be a great fight for Bay Area fans. Some people say they are hungry like a lion, but I'm hungry like a cockroach...nothing is hungrier than a roach."

Selcuk Aydin, Undefeated #1-Rated WBC Welterweight Contender (Via Skye from Stuttgart, Germany)

"I would fight anyone. Victor Ortiz, Andre Berto, Floyd Mayweather, etc., but those fights couldn't be made, so I'm happy Robert Guerrero stepped up to take the challenge.

"I'm confident that I will come out victorious on July 28. Robert has never been in with a guy like me. He has come up in weight from featherweight but now he is facing a true welterweight.

"I'm ready to come to America and show fans what I'm made of."
