The fighters spoke to media at Dream Hotel Downtown in Manhattan to discuss their 140-pound clash that will headline an exciting night of action later this summer.

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & GM, SHOWTIME Sports
 
"The bar has been set so high when you look at this year in boxing. It's a high bar to get a main event at Barclays Center. The standard is very high and this fight certainly satisfies it. Two of boxing's brightest young stars, both under 30 years old matching up against each other.
 
"This is the 19th live boxing event on SHOWTIME this year. Three world title unification, three world title rematches and six times where a top five fighter has fought another top five fighter in the division. We're proud to bring you these two fighters on SHOWTIME. I give the fighters all the credit in the world for taking this fight. These guys are ready for big fights and they are proving it."
