Here's what the fighters had to say on Wednesday:

JERMELL CHARLO
 
"It's always great to fight at Barclays Center, but it's just another arena and stepping stone for me.
 
"This fight is going to do a lot for boxing, and this fight does a lot for this 154-pound division. There's just so many positive things coming from this fight card, and hopefully everyone will come out and support it.
 
"I'm the champion of the world and I'm trying to get the fights that I want. I've been avoided and a lot of fighters have been ducking me. There's nothing we can do about that. This is a living for me, but it's also a hobby and something that I love.
 
"I own a home in Houston and California. My area wasn't too jacked up [by the flooding]. And now you've got the wildfires in California. My prayers go out to all those affected. But it has brought Houston together, and we're getting support from the NFL and NBA guys. And boxing has come together to help too.
 
"None of the flooding affected my training camp because I train out of town. We had some trees knocked down, but that's the least of my worries right now.
 
"I think my fight is the one the people want to see [on the card]. My opponent is a young stud and he comes to win a world title. Is Lubin the best fighter I've faced? I'm 29-0 and I've fought a lot of great fighters. You can't talk about what's on paper and what's not.
 
"My style is unique in the ring and so is his. He has a high volume of punches, but that's what we trained for. He's expecting fireworks, I'm expecting explosions. So just don't be surprised."

I never really followed the Charlos much. I like Jermall more and will root for him whenever he fights. Jermell seems to be a formidable opponent, too, and he's very confident. I like and respect that. I don't like his…

Lubin needs to keep his weight down in between fights, he looked in shape here and he needs to keep that up in this pro game.

Comment by Brooklyn926 on 10-12-2017

I see a lot of people writing off Lubin, he's got the goods as long as he stays composed and doesn't let the moment get to him and that shouldn't be a problem from what I've seen watching him... Charlo…
