MIGUEL COTTO AND UNDERCARD FIGHTERS LOS ANGELES MEDIA WORKOUT QUOTES

PhilBoxing.com




LOS ANGELES (Nov. 20, 2017): Four-division world champion Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) hosted a media workout today at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles ahead of the final fight of the future Hall of Famer's career, which will be against Sadam "World Kid" Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) for Cotto's WBO World Junior Middleweight Championship. The action will take place at the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Also participating in the workout was NABF Bantamweight Champion Oscar "El Jaguar" Negrete (17-0, 7 KOs), who will challenge Rey Vargas (30-0, 22 KOs) for the WBC World Super Bantamweight belt in the HBO-televised co-main event, along with Ronny Rios (28-2, 13 KOs) and Aaron "Silencer" McKenna who will also be on the card in separate bouts that will be streamed on RingTV.com.

Here is what today's participants had to say at the workout:



MIGUEL COTTO, Four Division World Champion:
"Though it has been my last training camp, everything has gone well and been the same. The fact that it is my last fight has not changed anything. I have always dedicated myself fully and have worked hard, and that's why I'm here now, finishing my career on my terms. I haven't really felt nostalgia yet during the final days of my camp. I'm just grateful for what boxing has given me and for the life it has allowed me to give to my children."



OSCAR "EL JAGUAR" NEGRETE, Current NABF Bantamweight Champion:
"I'm so excited for this opportunity. This is everything that I have worked for so far in my career. Being undefeated doesn't make him [Rey Vargas] invincible. I'm a forced to be reckoned with. People may underestimate me, but I know what I've done to make sure I walk away with the victory."



RONNY RIOS, Featherweight Contender:
"I learned a lot from my last fight. I feel like that's prepared me a lot for this next one. From my last fight I learned that I need to throw more punches and be more aggressive. If I would have just thrown 20 more punches in every round, things would have looked a lot different. I'm prepared for [Deivis] Julio, and I'm ready for fight night. As soon as I got the call, I was ready. I always stay ready in between fights."



AARON "SILENCER" MCKENNA, Welterweight Prospect:
"Today's workout and meeting the LA press was fantastic! I had a tremendous training camp and have had some really strong sparring at Maywood Gym. Ever since I put on my first pair of gloves at the age of 6, all the hard training, tournaments, amateur fights have led to me fighting at Madison Square Garden Dec. 2. I'm a delighted to be making my pro-debut and look forward to putting on a great show for the fans!"
