Vazquez: Mickey Bey is a tough opponent but I’m ready to win
MIGUEL VAZQUEZ, IBF Lightweight World Champion
“I’m ready and well prepared. I have a tough opponent in Mickey Bey but I’m ready to win.
“I want to dedicate this fight to my family and my team and especially to God for putting me in this position to live my dreams.
“This is definitely a key fight for me and an opportunity to make a name for myself. I’ve been a champion a long time and made six defenses, but I know a lot of fans don’t know who I am. That’s why I am so looking forward to Saturday.
“I think I have extra motivation for this fight because it is my chance to show the world that I am a real champion and that I deserve to be on a card as big as this.
“I’m ready to defend and I am well-prepared for what I know is a tough opponent in Mickey Bey.”
MICKEY BEY, Lightweight Contender
“Saturday I’m going to do my part and make sure it’s a spectacular fight. If you’re not there tune in early and check me and Miguel Vazquez out.
“I’m just waiting until Saturday to put on a show. It’s going to be 36 minutes or less of nothing but fireworks. You’ll have to tune in to see what happens next.
“It’s just another day and another fight for me. I’m going to wait to face-off inside the ring.
“I have the best trainer in the world, the great Floyd Mayweather Sr. I’m looking forward to grinding and getting to the next level of the sport.
“I don’t believe in the hype at all. I believe in going toe-to-toe with someone and seeing what happens after. Vazquez has done something right to be where he is today. He’s the champ for a reason but now he’s fighting me and it’s a new day.
“I don’t look at social media during fight week. I stay away from the negativity. I don’t have time for anything except taking care of business inside the ring.
“I’m going to put on a spectacular performance on Saturday. I take it one fight at a time.”
