Below is what the fighters had to say during the media workout at West Side Boxing Club in Los Angeles:

JULIAN "EL CAMARON" RAMIREZ, Featherweight Prospect:

"On April 2 I will give fans a good fight. I will go out there and try to perform. I have trained hard, and I will be ready for Hidalgo. This will be an aggressive fight; fans want an aggressive style, and I will give them that.

"I want to fight the best, and when I am ready for a title fight I will take on any champion. I am ready for the challenge."

EVERTON LOPES. Lightweight Prospect:

"We are training very hard. I am sparring and trying to improve everything. We have focused on fighting on the inside so I can be a strong fighter on April 2.

"Boxing was not popular in Brazil but now boxing is coming back. We are bringing back boxing to Brazil because they have world champions and Olympians to watch out for in professional boxing."

NICK ARCE, Featherweight Prospect:

"My training camp has included a lot of running and a lot of speed drills.  I want to be 100 percent at everything and make sure my defense and my speed will be in top form on fight night.

"I am excited because we are 10 minutes away from the Belasco Theater; it's here in Los Angeles, right at home.  I feel like I have the support of all my fans here. Without them this wouldn't be possible."
