Here's what the fighters had to say at today's workout:

OSCAR "EL JAGUAR" NEGRETE, NABF Bantamweight Champion:
 
"Obviously, I'm more comfortable at my natural weight of 118 pounds. What happened in December [against Rey Vargas] was a great opportunity in a new division. I couldn't say no to a world championship fight. Now I'm back at 118 pounds where I'll be looking for a world title shot. My last fight gave me a lot of confidence because I did so well, and I didn't even get hurt. Olguin is a great fighter. I saw him fight Emilio Sanchez, and he surprised me. He made it a tough fight. This kind of battle motivates me because he's such a tough fighter. He's going to come with everything to test me. Plus, he really wants to win, and when two people want the victory, it always makes for a great fight. I want fans to know that they can't miss this fight."

SENIESA "SUPER BAD" ESTRADA, Light Flyweight Prospect:

"It feels great to be active and staying busy this year with Golden Boy promotion. I can't wait to see what's in store for the years to come. I was very happy that I got the opportunity to fight on ESPN and win my last fight with a TKO victory. This upcoming fight people will see another exciting performance. I'm always working towards an even better performance than the one before and improving on different things so that my fans see the best of me."

RAUL "COUGAR" CURIEL, Welterweight Prospect:
 
"I feel good. People know me, and they know how I fight. I'm with Freddie Roach now and I feel great. I'm really happy to work under a legend like him. Freddie is a trainer who has a lot to teach. He always notices details that can help me get better. We make a great team, and we're working on a new style. We're moving a lot in the ring, and people will see a new Raul Curiel on July 6"
