Willie Monroe Jr.:
 “Camp and sparring has been amazing and we are looking forward to the fight with Bryan Vera. We have a great deal of respect for Bryan and his style of fighting. He is a world class fighter and if Willie Monroe Jr. deserves to be at the top of the middleweight division, come January 16 we will defeat Bryan Vera.
Damien Walton, Manager for Monroe:

“I think Willie is very motivated and in great shape for this fight. I think he’s got his work cut out for him in Bryan Vera but whens its all done you will see why Willie is ranked #3 in the world by the WBA and should be ranked # 1.”

Bryan Vera:

“This is another opportunity to reinvent myself like I have done many times before. I’m coming prepared and focused to get the job done.  All business here.  Coming to work  Be prepared to see me do what has to be done.  Look forward to another exciting fight here on ESPN. “

David Watson, Manager for Vera:

“We are winding down camp as the fight is approximately 7 days away.  Our weight is on track and we are looking forward to a victory over Willie Monroe and the opportunity to win the belts.”

“This fight is a great opportunity for Bryan.  This will be an exciting fight for the fans and a great start to the ESPN Friday night season.”
