STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive Vice President & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports
 
"In terms of representing the sport, you don't get any better than Errol Spence Jr. and Lamont Peterson. The professionalism of these guys is unmatched and they represent the best of the sport. I'm proud to have them on the network.
 
"You can't play boxing. You have to be dedicated and passionate. Those values are going to be reflected in the ring on Saturday.
 
"This is a special fight. These are the best in the sport. They're both top 10 guys. Errol Spence Jr. has grown up on SHOWTIME. He made his pro debut on ShoBox and won his first world title on SHOWTIME. This is Lamont's eighth appearance on SHOWTIME and he has one of the strongest resumes in the sport.
 
"Robert Easter and Javier Fortuna is another matchup of top 10 guys. What we're doing here is special. This isn't just another network doing boxing, this is the cream of the crop."

We're pleased that Robert has finally decided to take his show to Barclays Center and give the fans a performance. Last time Javier won at Barclays Center he won his world title and we're happy to have him back.
