SADAM "WORLD KID" ALI AND ZACHARY "ZUNGRY" OCHOA BROOKLYN MEDIA WORKOUT QUOTES

PhilBoxing.com




BROOKLYN, NY (Nov. 28, 2017) Current WBA International Welterweight Champion Sadam "World Kid" Ali (25-1, 14 KOs) today hosted a media workout at his gym in Brooklyn ahead of his fight against Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs) for the WBO World Junior Middleweight Championship set for this Saturday, Dec. 2 at the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, which will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Joining Ali at the workout was super lightweight contender Zachary "Zungry" Ochoa (17-1, 7 KOs) who will fight on the Cotto vs. Ali undercard in a six-round super lightweight bout against Erick Martinez (14-9-1, 8 KOs) that will be streamed on RingTV.com

Here is what Ali and Ochoa had to say at the workout:

SADAM "WORLD KID" ALI, Current WBA International Welterweight Champion:

"I'm really excited to be fighting at MSG against a legend. I know what's in front on me, and I know what I'm stepping up to. I'm different, I'm a bit of a boxer, I can brawl if I need to, and I have my little tricks.

"My motivation is being on HBO, it being a world title, and my career honestly. People say I didn't deserve this fight, but they haven't been paying attention to my career.

"This is my hometown. I grew up here. Cotto is coming to my territory. He's got power; I need to focus on not getting stuck. I worked a little bit with Danny Jacobs and Curtis Stevens for this fight.

"I want to thank all the fans who are coming to watch my fight! It'll be a great one!"

ANDRE ROZIER, TRAINER OF SADAM "WORLD KID" ALI:

"Sadam knows that this is the opportunity of a lifetime. We took the fight knowing what we had to step up to. Sadam's ready. He's been ready for a fight like this."

ZACHARY "ZUNGRY" OCHOA, Super Lightweight Contender:

"I'm so excited to be fighting at MSG. This is a fight for us here in the boroughs, for the Puerto Rican, and Arab community.

"I'm an awkward fighter, and I have a pretty unconventional fight style but I can bang!

"I'm excited to be building myself up again. After my first loss, I've been working on all my mistakes. I've been able to come back stronger mentally, and I've been able to learn from greats like Sadam. We're good friends, and I'll be rooting for him."

Vargas vs. Negrete is a 12-round fight for Vargas' WBC World Super Bantamweight Title and is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Miguel Cotto Promotions in association with Promociones del Pueblo.
