Below is what today's participants had to say:

VERGIL ORTIZ JR., Welterweight Contender: "This is going to be an explosive and very entertaining fight. This is my people and I don't want them wasting their money on an average fight. This isn't going to be an average fight, this is going to be a fight where two Mexicans warriors are going to go at it until the very end and give it all we got. I have a lot of respect for Orozco; he only has one loss and he is definitely still in his prime with 31-years-old. He is a great fighter."


ANTONIO OROZCO, Welterweight Contender: "We are looking for a fight to get people talking once again. This is the type of solid fights I like, and I don't want to disappoint the fans. I want to win and I'm going to push myself to win. Vergil Ortiz has made a name for himself, he is a tremendous fighter, he has built a reputation and I'm here to prove that I still have it. This is going to be a great fight."
