Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday:
 
ERISLANDY LARA
 
"I like to do my talking in the ring. On October 14 that's exactly what I'm going to do. It's an honor to be headlining on SHOWTIME and we're looking forward to a great fight.
 
"I'm excited to be part of this huge card. This is a great event. These are the best guys in the division. It's a pleasure to be the main event and I look forward to putting on a show.
 
"Gausha is a good fighter. He's an Olympian and a guy who wants to win and become world champion. I know what that feels likes, but I also know what it takes. We'll see how it plays out on October 14.
 
"I'm excited for this fight. I've beat champions, former champions and now I'll add an Olympian. After I take care of business I look forward to unifying the division.
 
"My prayers and my thoughts are with everyone down in Houston. I have family and friends who were affected. It's a sad situation, but Houston has to be strong. That's why I'm going to have 'Houston Strong' on my trunks because we all need to stick together and unite. That's the way we'll make it through."

TERRELL GAUSHA
 
"I was extremely excited to get the call for this fight. I've been working for this my whole career and it's a great opportunity. Lara is considered to be the best in the division and I want to fight the best. Now is my time.
 
"I'll have to make adjustments in there. Obviously with Lara you have to cut the ring off. We have a game plan that I'm going to go in there and execute on October 14.
 
"I'm fighting a tough competitor. He's crafty. We all know he has skills. But I've prepared for this and I'm going to do what I have to do. I like to do my talking in the ring and I'll leave it all on the line on fight night.
 
"I'm a more mature fighter now. I'm a true professional. I've been through some things in my career that have helped me leading up to this fight. I'm well-seasoned and ready for the test.
 
"I'm training with my coach Manny Robles in Norwalk, California and it's been going really well. We're adding a few things for this fight but mostly just putting in the same hard work that we always do.
 
"I'm blessed to be in this position. I feel like all my hard work is paying off now that I'm on a big card like this. I worked hard and I deserve this chance."
