Palacios: "I want to thank God for the opportunity to be here, for giving me strenght and power to do this every day. It will be a spectaular fight. I wanna thank KnockOut Promotions for welcoming me to Poland with open arms. I want to also thank Don King for making it happen. It's gonna be a thogh fight, a fan-frendly fight. The people deserve this type of fights, as undefeated figter comming in the house of the champion and fighting to see who's the best. I've had a great 10-weeks camp, good sparings, everything is good, I'm healthy. I'm ready to go. I know he's ready, I'm ready. Now the talking is over. Saturday night we're gonna see who's the champion. Thank you, Poland, I'm sorry that on Saturday there's a new WBC cruiserweight champion.

Wlodarczyk: "I never avoided any opponent and fought whoever my promoter or the federations put in front of me. Now the WBC wants me to fight against Palacios, so I fight him. I've had great sparring partners, like Matt Godfrey and Michael Simms. They helped me a lot to prepare for Saturday fight. I know the WBC belt is staying in Poland!
