Here is what the participants had to say from the Turf Club at Hialeah Park:
 
ERISLANDY LARA
 
"Thank you everyone for coming, especially Spike TV and Hialeah Park. Thanks to Team Foreman for taking this fight. It's going to be a great fight Friday night.
 
"Yuri Foreman is a great fighter and a very smart fighter. I am also a very smart fighter, so Friday night we're going to find out who is the smarter one in the ring.
 
"I feel great. Very happy to be back in Miami in front of my Cuban and Latin fans. This is a great night for Miami and Spike and I plan on putting on a show and making a statement to the boxing world.
 
"I feel great. I'm in great shape and feel very strong. I'm ready to fight right now. I just want the bell to ring."

ANTHONY DIRRELL
 
"I think this is my third Spike event and I'm happy to be fighting on a show with two great fighters like Lara and Foreman.
 
"It's going to be a hell of a show. We are going to put on a great show. All the fights on the card are tremendous fights - undefeated fighters fighting undefeated fighters and champions fighting champions and we are all coming to win.
 
"I was going to talk a lot of trash to him (Nemespati), but he can't understand me anyway. I am looking forward to a great fight against a good opponent like him. Make sure you tune in on Friday and catch the action!"
 
NORBERT NEMESAPATI
 
"I am coming in as the smaller fighter, so I will have to put a lot of pressure on him. I sparred a lot of rounds for this fight, with a lot of tall guys. That's fine with me that he is taller because I love to punch to the body.
 
"I might never get another opportunity like this, so I have to make the most of it. This is a beautiful place and I'm coming to the ring to win big. Thank you for this very special opportunity."
 
MIGUEL CRUZ
 
"I wish that Alex Martin was here so I could talk a little smack to his face.
 
"13-0, 11 KOs vs. 13-0, 5 KOs... basically somebody's '0' has to go and I can give you a hint... it's not going to be mine.
 
"I'm going to crush him like an ant with a sledgehammer. I'm going to destroy him. That's the plan. Don't miss it."

I wonder if Yuri will even hear the sixth bell.

Yet another cherry pick title defense by big talking Lara. He likes to fight guys Cotto already KOed. Boxrec ranks Foreman 117th at 154.What kind of title defense is that? Even Wilder defends his title against boxrec's top 40.
