QUOTES FROM YESTERDAY'S ROBERT GUERRERO VS. ANDRE BERTO & KEITH THURMAN VS. CARLOS QUINTANA FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE

PhilBoxing.com




ROBERT "THE GHOST GUERRERO, Four Division and Six Time World Champion

"There is nothing left to say. It's time to fight. I'm ready to fight and take care of business on November 24."

ANDRE BERTO, Former Two-Time Welterweight World Champion

"This has been a long time coming. I've had a hell of a year, going through a lot of trials and tribulations. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I've learned a lot about myself and how strong I am to get through what I've been through. I'm in a whole other mind frame and have a whole new motivation.

"I had a tremendous training camp and I'm in the best shape that I've been in in a long time. I'm focused and I think that's the most important thing.

"I want to thank Team Guerrero for taking the fight. He's a tough opponent and you definitely have to respect him for going through what he's been through with his wife. There's nothing to do but respect a man like that.

"I know he's coming to fight, so that's going to make it more exciting.

"I'm in shape and I'm ready to get back out there under the lights and have fun like I used to."

KEITH "ONE TIME" THURMAN, Rising Junior Middleweight Star

"I'm living the dream right now. I've been fighting since I was seven years old and this is what I want, to be in a big fight on a big stage on HBO.

"We both want to be champions and one of us already has been and I'm up and coming. I plan on taking out many people during my career and being champion at 154 or 147.

"I have a lot of confidence going into this fight. I'm strong and ready. I'm going to do my thing 'One Time.'

"This fight is what I'm talking about..I don't want no chumps. He's already looking forward and talking about fighting Canelo Alvarez, but I like that. I like the confidence he has, because I want to be in a good fight.

"I have plenty of confidence as well. So don't blink, as I have a lot of early knockouts and I have the abilities and skills to make that happen again on Saturday night."

CARLOS QUINTANA, Former World Champion

"I'm very excited to fight on this card on HBO, especially at 154 pounds.

"At 147 pounds, I had a very difficult time making weight, but I'm never looking back, I'm only looking forward to my future. At 154, I'm a new fighter and I'm undefeated.

"I expect a difficult fight from my opponent. He is young, strong and knows how to box, but come November 24, I'll be victorious.

"I was once his age and know what it's like to be hungry, but this is my time."

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, President of Golden Boy Promotions

"November 24 is a special Thanksgiving treat for fight fans. In both fights, you have two warriors wiling to face each other to prove they are the best in their weight classes. It will be electrifying night of boxing.

"The co-featured fight is going to be a great fight. It's a 50-50 fight, where it will be a toss of the coin type of fight. On one side you have a fighter who has the experience, confidence, speed, power and intelligence of a veteran [in Carlos Quintana], but on the other side, you have a future world champion who doesn't have as much experience, but has youth, confidence and is an unbeaten rising star that brings excitement to the game."

"With the main event, we are expecting record breaking numbers on HBO because of the magnitude of this fight. The winner of this fight is in line to face the best, the Mayweather's and guys like that. Guerrero is a tough guy in the welterweight division and not scared to fight anybody. He is fighting one of the best and that's why we respect him.

"I don't care when you [Andre Berto] lose or how you lose, but when you come back and knockout your next opponent in the fifth round, that's a man on a mission."
