QUOTES FROM THE FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE FOR THIS SATURDAY’S FOUR WORLD TITLE FIGHT EXTRAVAGANZA AS BOXING RETURNS TO BROOKLYN AT THE BRAND NEW BARCLAYS CENTER LIVE ON SHOWTIME®

 

 

Danny Garcia, Unified Super Lightweight World Champion:

 

“Saturday night, at Barclays [Center], will keep these belts here on the East Coast.  See you Saturday night.

 

“I want to thank God for giving me an opportunity to be here and showcase my skills on this level.  I want to thank my dad, my family who helped me get through camp.

“I had about a 10-week camp, a hard, strong camp. Got my rounds in sparring and miles in running. Did my conditioning. I put in the hard work.

“I sacrificed all the things I love to do just to perform and give the fans at the Barclays Center a great fight.

“I’m ready. I’m going to keep the belts here on the East Coast, and I will see on Saturday.”
 
Erik Morales, Former World Champion and Future Hall of Famer:

 

“It is an honor to be in New York for the first time fighting to regain my title.  It is hard to be in an arena with such of great fighters, but I’m here, and trust me I’m ready.  And certainly, each and every one of them is going to do the best that they possibly can to steal the night.
 

“I have been training very hard for Saturday.  I’ve done tremendous preparation. I’ll assure you it is going to be an explosive night. What you saw in March, it is definitely not what you are going to see on Saturday. I assure you I will regain my title.

 

“Many might ask, why do I keep fighting? Many of you question me, and I see it in your eyes. You wonder if I’m continuing because of economic status. And I tell you no. It’s not for money.

“Others might ask if I am not leaving boxing because there is a resistance to leave it. I tell them no as well. We have it planned out, the retirement, and it will be soon.

“We’re very relaxed. We’re very happy with the work that we have done for this particular fight up to this moment. I’m ready. I have done a tremendous job in preparation. I have done all of the work.

“I invite you all to come out Saturday night because I assure you it’s going to be an explosive night of boxing.”

 

Paulie Malignaggi, WBA Welterweight World Championship:

 

“I am very fortunate and blessed to be part of this team.  I get to reap the rewards through my hard work to now be a part of this tremendous show.  It’s pretty incredible.
“You grow up and everybody wants to have a big fight in their hometown.  Growing up in New York, the thing that we always dreamed about was Madison Square Garden, but it was because we did not have something like the Barclays Center to dream about. Now we do.  I feel so hapoy.
“Again, I am blessed and fortunate to be part of this opening show where I think that young kids will come out one day, and come out to the fights and, and dream to be part of big shows just like there in their future. It’s no longer just Madison Square Garden.

“You can dream about being part of the Barclays Center and part of a big event here. We’re coming with fireworks.  We’re coming with flash and with some big, big fights.

“And it’s not just my fight. This is an unbelievable show. This is just the first one. I know Golden Boy will keep doing this on a huge level. And I intend to be part of it. I want to continue to be part of it and continue to be part of these huge shows. Being in bigger fights. And I want to be part of the centerpiece of bringing their thing here to the Brooklyn.
