"Saul's manager Cameron Dunkin and I know the importance of this fight," said Robert   Garcia,   chief trainer of Saul. "Winning and looking impressive while doing it is important  as Saul is getting closer to a title fight opportunity. Saul has trained very, very hard for  this."


 
Saul said "I know the importance of what this fight is all about.  I've been boxing since   I was eight years old. I used to wrestle with friends but I always wanted to box. When I saw  the fight between Fernando Vargas and Tito Trinidad, that's when I began to box all the  time."


 
Ramsey Luna said "I'm a pressure-style fighter. I come forward. I began boxing when   I was 15. My Dad is tough too - he does houses for a living - painting and sheet-rocking."

Oscar said "I was born, raised in Reno. I had about 60 fights as an amateur and won   state and regional titles four times back to back. The last four years of my amateur career  I always competed in National PAL tournaments, the USA tournaments and Golden Gloves.  My dad is a trucker. "
 
There will be six bouts on the card.
