VICTOR ORTIZ
 
"I'm an easy-going guy but this is boxing. He might hate me. I respect him, but I'm coming to take him down and out.
 
"I know what I'm here for and that's a victory. As much talking as he's done, it was a different guy that showed up today.
 
"This is a totally different fight than five years ago. We're different people. I'm a different guy and so is he.
 
"Saturday is right around the corner and I'm here. I see loss in his eyes. I'm ready. 100 percent.
 
"This is a whole new chapter in my saga. I feel like this is my time once again. I've only fought in my prime twice. I did a lot of damage at young age. I feel I'm in my prime now. The sky is the limit.
 
"I feel very at peace being back in Ventura to train. We're going to capture another world title. We went to training camp for that purpose. My mind is set on being one of the greatest.
 
ANDRE BERTO
 
"We had an amazing camp. The situation five years ago, there's no reason to keep speaking on that. I'm a better man today. I put in the work for this one.
 
"I'm looking forward to this. Everybody knows me and knows how I get down. I'll do my talking in the ring.
 
"Thanks to Victor for taking this fight. All the personal stuff aside, we have to get in the ring and do what we have to do. It's been five years coming and now we're here.
 
"The stuff Victor said on the stage and his body language. I believe he knows he is going to be in there with a different type of animal this time.
 
"I think he is already defeated. He sees how focused I am. If he has been hearing anything from camp, he knows I'm ready to go.
 
"He didn't believe anything he said on the stage. Looking at him face to face, he was trying to tell jokes. I think that he knows that he is going to be in there with a different Andre Berto."

I gotta be honest, Danny Garcia is probably the biggest cherry picker in boxing I've got this baaaaad feeling if Berto wins, Danny will look to fight/beat him Then Mayweather comes out of retirement for fight #50 Promoting Danny as…
