Here's what the fighters had to say regarding their respective fights at today's media workout:

JORGE "EL NIÑO DE ORO" LINARES, WBA, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine Lightweight Champion:
"This is a great fight for me, I am the first Venezuelan boxer to headline an HBO show and it is a huge privilege. I hope that with this fight, I leave a big enough impression and make Golden Boy Promotions, Teiken Promotions, and HBO proud.

"Luke Campbell is a young hungry fighter, and that can be a critical difference in the ring. Being a former Olympic fighter, the big lights and cameras won't scare him off and neither does being the 'underdog'. My experience and my mentality for this fight is what sets me apart. I have trained all over the world - from Japan, to Panamá, to the UK. I have a well-rounded boxing curriculum. Since my loss to Antonio DeMarco at Staples Center. I am a completely different fighter. I am ready more than ever to capture the fans here in the U.S."

LUKE CAMPBELL, 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist and Lightweight Contender:
"Fighting on such a big stage doesn't change the preparation. Motivation is a massive thing. I'm fighting on the biggest network out there. It's a fantastic way to introduce myself to the American market. I'm excited to watch. I don't know much about Linares. Obviously he's a 3-division world champion. This is my opportunity to show what I've got."

ANTONIO "RELENTELESS" OROZCO, WBC USNBC Super Lightweight Champion:
"The time off was wonderful, the opportunity to be on ESPN was great. You always want to work harder than the last training camp. We needed the professional help from a nutritionist, it gave us great results last time, and it'll give us great results this time. I wasn't looking for a knock out, but it felt great. It was because of the way we worked out, we just want to put on a great show. This is our opportunity to showcase our talent."

ROBERTO "MASSA" ORTIZ, Super Lightweight Contender:
"I'm very happy, I'm very motivated. I appreciate the opportunity to be back on the team. I want to thank Golden Boy and my managers. I had a chance and it didn't go well, but I'm very motivated to do well. I know he's a good fighter. He comes forward. I've prepared mentally and physically, and I know a win will bring bigger and better fights for me. They can expect to see a fighter who comes forward. Let them know. I'm very well prepared for Saturday night. This a fight the fans don't want to miss. We're two tremendous warriors."

ROMERO "RUTHLESS" DUNO, Lightweight Prospect:
"After I won against Chimpa, I trained harder and harder so my next fight would come easy. This coming Saturday, I'll show how much I practiced. There is always focus on me, that's why I'm always confident. I'm so excited to get back in the ring."

AZAT "ATTACK" HOVHANNISYAN, Super Bantamweight Prospect:
"I'm very happy, I'm very well prepared. I'm ready for the fight. I've been training for 3 months and have been focused. I'm very excited to face a challenge. It's a big show. I haven't fought on a big show like this. It's a big card, and I want to be the best."

ABRAHAM "CHAMACO" LOPEZ, Featherweight Contender:
"I'm super excited and ready to go. The last fight was a little slip up -- no more nice Abe! When I'm in the ring, I've got to be an animal. I'm ready to show the world a new type of Abraham. I had a lost day in my last fight, this is my comeback, and I've been training harder, and I am a lot hungrier. My last fight left a bitter taste, and I'd like to get my opponent again, but if not, I'll see him soon. I'll do whatever I have to do to get that victory."

MANUEL "TINO" AVILA, Featherweight Contender:
"I'm really excited to be back in the ring, coming out of a loss. My opponent is a straight forward fighter, he's left handed. I learned a lot about myself in the last fight, I haven't trained any different, and our team based training our game plan off another left hander. I'm putting myself back on the map, I'm going to be a defensive fighter."

RAFAEL "EL ALIKIN" GRAMAJO, Super Bantamweight Prospect:
It's really exciting to be fighting at the forum, I want to thank Golden Boy for that. It's been a really big fight, another month and a half added to our camp. I know little about my opponent, he's got a little boxing style, but that won't matter come fight night cause we have what it takes. We're going to do what we have to do to take this fight."
