YUNIER DORTICOS
 
"I'm happy to be a part of this great event. On Saturday night you will see what I'm all about. Saturday is going to be an explosive matchup and I will leave with my belt.
 
"This is definitely going to be an exciting fight but I have to focus on my game plan and being at the very top of my game on Saturday.
 
"I've trained really hard for this fight. None of the storms in Miami have slowed me down at all. There will be no excuses on fight night.
 
"To be a part of this tournament is truly an honor and I know that it's going to put me at the top of this division. I've always believed in my abilities and now I can go prove myself against the best.
 
"Winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy would mean so much to me because he is the fighter that everyone looks up to and tries to be like. Saturday night is my first step toward that goal.
 
"The fans in San Antonio are in for a great show. That's on my mind every time I step into the ring and this is really a great opportunity to give the fans something memorable."

"I am excited to see all the fans on Saturday night. We both have a lot of knockouts so this is going to be a great fight. I will have my hand raised on Saturday.
 
"This chance to become a world champion for the first time is something that I have worked towards for many years. This is my dream and the fact that it brings me closer to the Ali Trophy adds even more excitement.
 
"I know that I have a very tough opponent in front of me. We've worked so hard to prepare my body and mind for 12 rounds of war. There is no way I can lose this fight.
 
"My training camp has been very strong. I've been more focused than ever on winning this fight. I knew that I would need to have a great training camp to advance and leave here with the title.
 
"I always train to deliver a knockout. That is my goal for myself. But I will definitely also be ready to go the full 12 rounds. I'm going to leave it all in the ring on Saturday.
 
"Being a part of this tournament brings me a lot of joy because it gives me the chance to fight the best. That is why I started boxing and now it is time for me to prove that I'm the best in the world."

[QUOTE=Urtain;18080243]This must be explosive. Flying bombs until one of them is KO'd. Kayode - Tapia should be fun too.[/QUOTE] Kayode vs. Tapia could be good. I picked Kayode by KO, it is risky i know but i have a feeling.

... I expect that Dorticos would try to wear Kudryashov down...

Comment by SteveM on 09-23-2017

Surprised to see the hammer look in better condition than his opponent - how often does that happen? I'm liking Dorticos more in this but if ever someone has a puncher's chance it'd be Kudryashov

this could be the best fight of both the com petitions. Lots of good boxing on tonight. 2017 though!!
