Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday:
 
JARRETT HURD
 
"It means everything to be defending my belt on a card like this. I fought here at Barclays Center on the Keith Thurman vs. Shawn Porter undercard so to be back here against a veteran in Austin Trout is great. I can't wait to put on a show.
 
"We're going to have two buses of fans coming up here. The 'Swift' fans will be in the house. It's going to be a great atmosphere on fight night.
 
"In my last bout, Tony Harrison won some early rounds by boxing me, so we've known that my next opponent is going to try to outbox me. We expect him to move around and use the ring against me.
 
"This has been a long training camp. We've had this bout set for a long time. We're more than prepared.
 
"We've been training to catch a 'Trout.' We'll put the bait out there and let him come in. If he doesn't take the bait, we'll step right in the water and get him out of there.
 
"I'm going to keep the pressure on him. I'm planning on attacking the body and making sure I cut off the ring. He's going to be on the move so I have to be prepared.
 
"My fans can expect a stoppage on October 14. He's got three losses against great opponents but none have been able to stop him. I'm going to separate myself by being the first to do it."

AUSTIN TROUT
 
"This is going to put me back to where I belong. Right back on top. This is for my legacy so this is of the utmost importance.
 
"It's an honor to be on a card like this. I'm blessed to be a part of this great lineup of fighters. This place is the new hotspot of boxing and I can't wait to perform.
 
"Hurd is tall, he's a big guy who I think is going to come forward. We're preparing for the best possible Hurd that there could be.
 
"I'm ready to take my career to a whole new level. I've been in big fights, but none like this. There is so much riding on this fight. He wants to make a name for himself off of my name.
 
"He didn't have to take this fight and I'm happy he did. But he messed up. I'm leaving the ring with his belt and his '0.' I want to stake my claim as the best in the division.
 
"I'm coming home as a world champion. I'll be a two-time world champion who's going to unify this division. I'm going to have my hand raised at the end of the night."

I dont know how Trout will handle the long reach, jabs and uppercuts of Hurd.

Comment by Mammoth on 09-06-2017

Hurd will have to move to middleweight eventually... Damn

Comment by richardt on 09-06-2017

Guys, he is not as tall as you think. If he took that wig off and put it on Trout.........well you get the point.

Comment by Boxing Logic on 09-06-2017

Trout facing another super middleweight as he fights at 154. Mismatch. Cant believe those guys fight in the same weight class. Trout needs to bring his own scale and make Hurd weigh in on it too to make sure they're…

I think Trout has a decent shot here. :boxing:
