Here is what Benavidez had to say about his opponent, training camp and more:
 
On his recent training camp in Southern California...
 
"We had another great training camp out here in Long Beach, California.  We put the final touches and wrapped up camp and I'm ready to go.  There was plenty of good sparring and we worked on some things we know will help us in this fight. I'm in great shape and I feel sharp."
 
On fighting in his first main event on ESPN...
 
"Fighting on ESPN is great exposure for me and my team, especially in the main event.  We all worked so hard to get in this position and now it's time to capitalize on this great opportunity. I know a lot of family and friends back home in Phoenix will be tuning in. I just want to shine out and perform to my best ability."
 
On facing his opponent Denis Douglin...
 
"This is going to be a tough fight.  I know Douglin is hungry to give me my first loss.  He's coming off three wins in a row, so I'm taking this fight very seriously. Being that he's a southpaw, I'll have to do some things a little different.  We worked on all that stuff in camp so I know I'm going to be ready for anything he brings to the ring."
 
On training with his father and head coach Jose Benavidez...
 
"My dad Jose has been guiding my corner from the first day I started boxing around three years old.  Together we have a strong bond and I respect him very much.  He's come up with a great game plan tailor made for Douglin.  He's made a lot of sacrifices to help me get to this point and I'm very thankful to him for all that he's done for me and my brother. I want nothing more than to bring him another great victory."
 
On fighting on the East Coast for the second time in his career...
 
"The East Coast fans are very passionate about their boxing.  Douglin, being that he's from New Jersey, will have a lot of fans rooting against me.  But I'm not going to let anything distract me from the task at hand and that's coming back home with a win."

Shouldn't it be David "La Bandera Roja" Benavidez since Bandera is a feminine noun in Spanish? its like saying La Cobrita or La Joya
