Here is what the fighters had to say Wednesday:

 JARRELL MILLER
 
"I can't wait to get in the ring in my hometown. There's going to be great energy and great excitement on Saturday. I'm in killer mode right now but inside I'm jumping for joy.
 
"Gerald Washington is a good opponent for me coming back from a layoff. Most people wouldn't go right into a fight so challenging. I'm warrior-built. I've been doing this for a long time.
 
"My main thing is to go in there and knock him out. However the knockout comes, it comes. This is boxing so anything can happen in there. Deontay Wilder is different than me. I'm going to show that on Saturday.
 
"I hope that I can get a fight with Deontay Wilder after this one. If he'll come to New York, then even better. I think my progression is ahead of where he was. We're going to keep fighting, getting knockouts and eventually a world title fight.

GERALD WASHINGTON
 
"I had a great training camp. We put in all the work and pushed ourselves. I stepped out of my comfort zone for this one. We're ready to rock.
 
"I did a training camp with Wladimir Klitschko, which was amazing. I learned so much from watching him train. The focus that he has and the dedication that he shows is inspiring. It was a great experience to be there and soak it all up.
 
"I'm just looking to keep focused on Saturday. I'm going to fight hard from bell to bell to get the win.
 
"Miller is a big tough guy. We expect that from him. We're in his backyard so I know he's going to come in 100 percent. We're here to handle business. All I'm thinking about is Jarrell Miller and taking him out."
