"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."
