RYAN GARCIA, INTERNATIONAL BOXING STAR AND SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CONTENDER:

"I put everything into this fight. You know, for the first time, I'm extremely committed in a long time. You know 2021 was one of the years that kind of broke me. 2022, you know a big change in me, and 2023 opened my eyes. I'm about to come back for everything, I'm just laser-focused and that's where my confidence comes from."

OSCAR DUARTE, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CONTENDER:

"First of all, good afternoon, everyone. I'm very happy, very content, to be here. I'm enjoying every moment. This was a dream and it is now a reality. And this Saturday, you'll see my best version. I have a great team, and this Saturday, I'll be winning."

FLOYD SCHOFIELD, WBA LIGHTWEIGHT INTERNATIONAL TITLEHOLDER:

"Hello everybody, I'm just super excited that I get this opportunity. I would like to give a big thank you to Golden Boy, Cameron Davies, and my dad. Without them, I wouldn't be here. I feel like Saturday is just a stepping stone to getting my name out there and put the whole 135 division on notice that I'm here to stay. On Saturday, you can expect some fireworks and I will give you all a great show. Thank you!"
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS:

"This fight card is overflowing with top talent that we have personally scouted and have been carefully building to be the next generation of world championship stars. You won't want to miss this!"
BERNARD HOPKINS, PARTNER OF GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS:

"This is the moment, as we close 2023 and move to 2024, for our fighters to prove themselves to become the top dog. This is their chance to prove they can one day be the main event."
