"I'm happy to be here and I truly believe this will be a very exciting fight. Adrien is a very young and explosive fighter. He's a force in boxing right now.
 
"Ashley Theophane is a guy that came from the UK with a dream. His dream was to be world champion one day. Same dream I had. He's a very humble, hungry and dedicated fighter.
 
"I don't think this is going to be an easy fight for Adrien. I'll tell both guys to push themselves to the limit and give fans what they want to see.
 
"Gervonta Davis is someone I look at like a son. I met him in 2014 and they said this is the next big thing. Broner brought him to my gym to let me see him work. He's a very explosive kid. He's exciting and he will be fighting for a world title soon after a couple more bouts.
