ANTHONY DIRRELL
 
"I'm so thankful to everyone who helped make this event happen. I wanted to bring something to Flint, because of all the negativity that's been going on here. Flint was a big city when I was growing up. I want to bring some recognition and big events like this to my city.
 
"It's an honor to be fighting here again and I'm excited to showcase my talents for everyone in Flint. I've been wanting to do this for a long time and the moment is finally here. I will be great when the moment comes.
 
"I've been preparing for this fight. I've stayed in the gym and worked hard every day and I'm going to continue to do that up until this fight.
 
"I hope that we have a great show and we can have more events like this here. I want to give the fans in my city something to come to and enjoy themselves without worrying about anything. Come out, bring your family and just enjoy a great night of skill and talent."

TOM BROWN, President of TGB Promotions
 
"Anthony Dirrell, who was born and raised here in Flint along with his brother and top contender, Andre, will be fighting for only the third time in his hometown. It's something that Anthony has wanted for a long time and I can guarantee that he will be at his absolute best in front of his hometown fans and family on November 17th.

"I was trying to come up with the right charity to support with this event and it was right in front of my eyes -   Dirrell's Chance Foundation - Anthony Dirrell is the founder of the Dirrell's Chance Foundation, actively giving back to the community of Flint. Anthony is an inspiration to many and he is a true testament of never giving up, both inside and outside of the ring. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the foundation."
