JOSE SANTA CRUZ, Santa Cruz's Father & Trainer
"I feel really good. My cancer is dormant right now and I feel like I'm recuperating and getting back to my normal self. I'm making sure that everything is fine and I'm doing well with the doctors. Right now everything on the health forefront is good.
"I am happy to be part of Leo's training camp again. I think that was the major difference in his last fight. I'm back pressuring him again and making sure he keeps the pressure on his opponent. I think my presence in the gym reminds him of the work he needs to do.
"Leo wasn't defending the way that he should have in the last fight, he kept throwing punches without blocking. He was throwing sluggish, slow punches.  I'm getting him back on point and making sure that he doesn't let up."

ROBERT GARCIA, Garcia's Brother & Trainer
"Dejan Zlaticanin is a very strong fighter, not only physically, but mentally. We're training like never before. We've been training hard for two months and preparing for a really tough fight. This fight is a big fight and it brings even bigger ones after.
"Mikey wants these big challenges. Zlaticanin is a polished champion with tremendous power. The challenge is ahead of him. There are so many big names at lightweight and other weight classes. His goals are to get there, and it starts with this fight.
"It's been a few years since Mikey's last fight in Las Vegas so it's really exciting to be on the card headlined by Frampton-Santa Cruz 2. We know it's going to be a huge crowd and they'll be supporting Mikey. Plus, with all the Frampton fans that will be there, we know that it's going to be an incredible atmosphere. Mikey knows this is the beginning of huge things. After this, Mikey will be the one headlining."
