The workout also featured many fan favorites from the Aug. 26 undercard. Here is what the fighters had to say regarding their respective bouts at today's workout:

MIGUEL COTTO, Former Four-Division World Champion:
 
"Every time that I get fit for a fight, I just find that I work hard. It was not our plan to have 24 months off, but the time off just gave me time to use the opportunity to spend with my family. I don't think the time off prolonged my career. I'm going to be here until December 21. After this fight, I'm going to rest. Then were going to see what we have."
