LOU DIBELLA, President of DiBella Entertainment
 
"I love this fight. This is why we do this job. We want to make sensational fights like this for the fans to enjoy.
 
"Adrien Broner has spent a lot of time at the top of the sport while Mikey Garcia has made his way back to that top tier emphatically since returning last year.
 
"Mikey has insane amounts of talent. He's a tremendous ambassador for the sport and he can do everything in the ring.
 
"Adrien Broner is a star. He's 'The Problem' and sometimes he's his own biggest problem. He's an entertainer. People hate him but they pay to see him. He gets a lot of love and he gets a lot of hate. That's worked for a lot of guys in this sport over the years. People care about him."

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & GM, SHOWTIME Sports
 
"The bar has been set so high when you look at this year in boxing. It's a high bar to get a main event at Barclays Center. The standard is very high and this fight certainly satisfies it. Two of boxing's brightest young stars, both under 30 years old matching up against each other.
 
"This is the 19th live boxing event on SHOWTIME this year. Three world title unification, three world title rematches and six times where a top five fighter has fought another top five fighter in the division. We're proud to bring you these two fighters on SHOWTIME. I give the fighters all the credit in the world for taking this fight. These guys are ready for big fights and they are proving it."

BRETT YORMARK, CEO, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment
 
"On July 29, Barclays Center will host its fourth major card of 2017. There is a great heritage of boxing in New York and I'm proud that Barclays Center is the number one boxing venue in the country. It has become a destination for the sport's best talent, with Adrien and Mikey being two prime examples of that.
 
"I'm looking forward to one of the year's most talked about fights. Adrien won a world title at Barclays Center and Mikey made his comeback there just last year. July 29 will be a special night not just for Brooklyn boxing, but for all boxing fans.
 
"Fights fans everywhere have already circled July 29 on their calendars and I look forward to seeing everyone next month."

Broner is beating up on a bunch of Mexican sparring partners. It's going to be so interesting the fight!

[QUOTE=Redd Foxx;17782553]For whatever reason, I thought Mikey was a lot smaller. They're nearly the same. Adrien is fuuuuuuked.[/QUOTE] They're listed as the same height with a one inch wingspan difference in favor of broner...it's negligible.
