Here is what fighters from the Sept. 29 card had to say at the workout:
 
JORGE LINARES, Former Three-Division World Champion:

"I've prepared very well for this fight. I'm training with Jorge Zerpa for this fight. He isn't a new trainer. In fact, we were together 11 years ago when I fought for my first world title against Oscar "El Chololo" Larios in Las Vegas. We're working on a lot of things, but mostly we've been reviewing and going back to an old school style of training. I'm not changing my style, just adding some things.
