PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES
 
WILFREDO VASQUEZ, JR.: "'JuanMa' Lopez and many people have belittled me.  They have disparaged my sacrifice, the food that I put on the table for my family, but Saturday I will hurt him.  I have a Maciavelli plan to destroy him so he will respect me. I respect everybody that has had a rough time."

JUAN MANUEL LOPEZ: "Vasquez was interrupting at all times during the press conference.  He was singing out loud and during the face-to-face picture he tried to kiss me and I did not permit.  I understand that he's afraid and what a better moment than in front of everybody including the press to release his emotions."

At one point it looked like Juanma was headed to the hall of fame but the he fought Roger's Mtagwa and the slide began. They should have put him in against Gamboa while it was in demand. Neither guy has…
