Here is what the fighters had to say Tuesday:
 
DANIEL JACOBS
 
"I think my skills are an advantage. Skills pay the bills. At the end of the day I have a lot of skills over 'Kid Chocolate.' Speed is one. He's probably a bigger puncher and naturally heavier. With all that power, he has to get to me. He has to be able to land those shots.
 
"I'm going to adjust. I love knockouts. If I can end it with a knockout that's what I'll do. But I have to use my skills and my advantages.
 
"Quillin made weight in his last fight and he has a new strength coach so hopefully he makes weight for this one. I want him to be 110 percent so there are no excuses and we can give the fans a great fight.
 
"I'm at about 170 pounds right now, so I have 10 pounds to go. It's mostly water so it'll go quickly and we'll be good by fight night.
 
"Time is the biggest experience you can have. It was almost all taken away from me. Mentally, I'm there. Physically, I'm there. It's my time and I just have to be ready Dec. 5.
 
"I've been based out in Long Island and Brooklyn for training camp. I get to see Brooklyn every day. I'm in the streets and in-tuned with the people. Being from here means even more to me.
 
"It's going to be an excellent, fan-friendly fight. I've heard lots of different opinions about who is going to win, and I like that. At the end of the day, it's about us proving who will be the victor.
 
"I've been campaigning for this fight for a long time. I haven't thought about who I want to go after if I win but I'm going to fight the best and work my way to being the best in the division."
