ERICKSON LUBIN
 
"It feels great to be here. Training camp was amazing. We had lots of sparring and made lots of improvements from my last fight. I feel strong and I can't wait until Saturday night.
 
"I don't let anything get to me. I know what I can do. I'm going to go in there confident and be dominant. I'm going to be aware of everything and keep my mind sharp in the ring.

"My coach does the studying of the tape but I know he's a strong Mexican power-puncher. We know he's going to be aggressive, but we're ready for any style he comes with on Saturday night.
 
"For every opponent, the game plan is different. We have a game plan, but we'll be ready to adjust. At the end of the day, I have to go in there and win, and win impressively.
 
"Being on this card is a wonderful feeling. I get to open up for this tremendous fight that I think is going to be the Fight of the Year. I'm going to set the bar real high.
 
"I'm coming for that number one spot Saturday night. After that, I become the mandatory for Jermell Charlo. I'm going to win this fight in spectacular fashion, mark my words."

JORGE COTA
 
"I know that it's been a long lay-off but I've been staying in the gym and staying ready. I don't think I'll have any ring rust once I get in there.
 
"I'm going to take it round-by-round and see what he brings into the ring. I'm going to make adjustments off of what I see. I'll assess the situation and take it on from there.
 
"I have a lot of motivation coming into this fight and I'm ready to move a step closer to a world title. This opportunity is something that I won't let slip by.
 
"I know I have a very tough opponent in front of me, but I am too strong and I will be too good on Saturday night."

Cool to see Dawson back. I don't know how much he has left but if he's not shot he should have a very good chance in this fight.

[QUOTE=yammy25;17470156]she certainly needs to shave her armpits the dirty cow. Also.. why so many little fingermark bruises? [IMG]http://straightfromthea.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/tumblr_nj6aztP4N21qk08n1o1_500.gif[/IMG][/QUOTE] Never have understood that. It's like some people have constant cuts and bruises.... unless she simply had a few rough boinking sessions…
