Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, WBC Super Flyweight World Champion, stated:

“I feel very strong and I have trained very hard for this. My weight is on point and I am expecting a tremendous showing this Saturday night. I am definitely looking to finish him within the distance. This will not go to a judges’ decision. Everyone who knows me, and is a fan of mine, knows what I bring to the table. They all know how I fight. Everytime I step into the ring, my mind is always thinking knockout. This time will be no different. I’m looking to put on a show for my hometown fans!”

Iran Diaz, World Title challenger, stated:

“This is the biggest opportunity of my career, and I have worked extremely hard in camp preparing for it. Srisaket is a great champion, and he is well-loved by his people. But I’m coming in here looking to seize the moment. This is my time to shine. I have the best team in my corner. They have helped get me ready to capture the gold. I feel so strong and ready. Making weight was no problem for me. I have one thing on my agenda, and that’s to take the belt back home to Mexico. The champion better be ready, because I’m coming at him with my best!”
