What the fighters had to say on Thursday:
 
SHARIF BOGERE

"I know Beltran's tough. I know he trains with Manny (Pacquiao). But I don't care. I'm going to take it tomorrow.”
 
RAY BELTRAN

"Coming in as the opponent feeds my motivation. This is a challenge and it's time to prove what I can do. They take me lightly. Manny people have.
 
“I've been knocking on doors. A lot of us fighters have been. So I'll show the world that we've been disrespected. I'll show them they are wrong. This is my shot on SHOWTIME, on national TV.” 
 
SETH “MAYHEM” MITCHELL
“I'm focused on business, on taking care of my opponent. But I understand that I need to look good on SHOWTIME.
 
“(Quinn's) head games will not affect my game plan. It gets me going.
 
“I am honored to for the title (of best American heavyweight prospect). But I take it in stride. My success thus far hasn't surprised me.”
 
EVANS “THE SANDMAN” QUINN
"Nicaraguans are fighters. We are warriors. That's why I am the way I am.
 
“I always keep my game plan. I don't take away that (Mitchell) could be an American hero. He could be whatever he wants to be. I just plan to take away the fight. I will win.”s
