TRAVIS KAUFFMAN

"This is a fight that has been building for a while. There will be fireworks in the ring on Friday night.

"I accepted this fight because of the caliber of fighter that Amir is. Come fight night, it is going to be a war.

"I made a lot of sacrifices for this fight.  We have prepared for the best Mansour to show up in the ring. I can't fall asleep for five seconds in this fight or else I can get stopped. I think that Amir is one of the most feared and avoided heavyweights in the world."

AMIR MANSOUR

"I got myself a bottle of anti-aging juice. I'm ready for this fight and excited to give the fans another show.

"I love boxing. I don't fight bums. I love to make sparks fly every time I step in there. Everyone knows what they're going to see on Friday night.

"This is a great opportunity for me as I continue my quest for the heavyweight championship of the world. Travis is a tough guy, and he has a scientist in his corner, but it won't be enough on Friday.
