Photos/Weights: Gonzales vs Duran, Molina vs Reyes

NOTE: WEIGHTS   - Brandon "Flawless" Gonzales (14-0-1, 10 KOs) of Sacramento, Calif., weighed in at 161.5 pounds and Ossie "The Ghanaian Gladiator" Duran (26-8-2, 10 KOs) of Paterson, N.J., 161 pounds one day before their eight-round middleweight main event showdown on ShoBox : The New Generation , Friday, Oct. 28 , at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) from Bally's Grand Ballroom in Atlantic City, N.J.

 

In the eight-round welterweight co-feature, 2008 US Olympian  Javier "El Intocable" Molina (9-0, 4 KOs) from Norwalk, Calif., tipped the scales at 146 pounds and Artemio "King" Reyes (13-1, 11 KOs) of Colton, Calif., weighed 147 pounds.

 

Here's what each fighter had to say on Thursday:

 

BRANDON GONZALES:

"Nothing looks better than winning. Whether it's in sparring or a fight on TV, I always try to perform to the top level.

 

"As far as my work ethic goes, it was always there. But what my trainer Virgil (Hunter) brings to the table is peace of mind and consistency. He knows so much about nutrition, strength and conditioning. He brings it all together."

 

OSSIE DURAN:

"Gonzales has got to go through me so tomorrow we'll see if he can. I need to look good so I can get more TV fights. That's why I took this fight.

 

"Every fight is different. Every fighter is different. When I fought (James) Kirkland on ShoBox , the pace was quick. It had to be. For Gonzales, I'll do whatever I need to do to prove to people I'm for real."

 

JAVIER MOLINA:

"Reyes is predicting he'll knock me out but I have no comment on that. Saying and doing are two separate things.

 

"I think Reyes is a good fighter and it's time for me to step up so I took the fight.

 

"I'm happy to be on ShoBox . It's my first ShoBox fight so I'm excited ... and confident."

 

ARTEMIO REYES:

"I took this fight for the opportunity to be on ShoBox . I couldn't pass it up. It's very important to look good, to catch the eye of people who put on the nationally televised fights.

 

"I'm going to knock (Molina) out. I've had a great camp. He hasn't faced anybody. I have a great team around me. It's mixture of everything."
