Porter spoke from his training camp in Las Vegas, while Granados shared his thoughts from camp in Chicago, just over a week before they go toe-to-toe in Brooklyn:

SHAWN PORTER
 
"Training camp has gone very well. We did most of our work here in Las Vegas and also a little bit at Wild Card in California. We're at the tail end of camp now. Every day is going to be exciting as we taper off and get ready for November 4.
 
"I feel very familiar with Granados at this point. One night I watched about three or four of his fights and some interviews and really got to put him in my mind. He's an aggressive fighter who's not easily hurt or fazed by what's going on in the ring. Whether that's him getting hit or an opponent making him miss.
 
"This is going to be a very competitive fight. The key to beating him will be my speed. I have to out box him, make him walk into some heavy shots and eventually knock him out.
 
"I love Las Vegas but I'm always very excited to get the opportunity to fight at Barclays Center. It's a genuinely fun arena.  The energy there is bar-none. I absolutely love being able to entertain crowds out there in Brooklyn.
