*Contracted weight was 122 pounds; Avila paid a penalty out of his purse and the fight will continue.

PAUL MENDEZ:

“DonYil’s a good boxer, but I’ve worked on my whole game.  I’m taller than he is and I have the reach.”

“A lot of people see it as a test, but I don’t.  I just see it as doing what I’ve worked on in the gym with the Garcias in Salinas, and coming out with another win.”

DONYIL LIVINGSTON (VIA SOCIAL MEDIA):

“I haven't been in the ring for six months, allowing me the opportunity to rededicate myself to my craft.  It's go time.  [The] weight is great and [the] fight will be better.”

MANUEL AVILA:

“In my last fight in August, I felt a lot better than I did in July when I was coming off a back injury.  I still had a little bit of ring rust.  This time, I felt more relaxed in there.  I’ve been working on my handspeed and my offense rather than just lay back and counterpunch.”

“I’m trying to show people I’m for real and that my record isn’t a padded one, and fighting an experienced guy like Molina, I think if I win it would be a good start.”

JOHN ALBERT MOLINA:

“I’m going to take him to deep waters after the third round and take him to school.”

ANDY VENCES:

“I’m excited to be making my pro debut.  I don’t know much about my opponent but we sold 60 tickets, and my family and friends will be there.  I've been training hard for this and I'll be ready.”

RICARDO PINELL:

“It’s unfortunate, but it’s very unprofessional on [Buchanan’s] part to come in 14 pounds overweight.  We’ve been working hard for my pro debut but we’ll keep going at it in the gym.  It’s frustrating.”
