PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES
WILFREDO VASQUEZ, JR.: “‘JuanMa’ Lopez and many people have belittled me. They have disparaged my sacrifice, the food that I put on the table for my family, but Saturday I will hurt him. I have a Maciavelli plan to destroy him so he will respect me. I respect everybody that has had a rough time.”
JUAN MANUEL LOPEZ: “Vasquez was interrupting at all times during the press conference. He was singing out loud and during the face-to-face picture he tried to kiss me and I did not permit. I understand that he’s afraid and what a better moment than in front of everybody including the press to release his emotions.”
CARLOS MALDONADO, President of Black Tiger Promotions: “Security will be tripled for Friday’s weigh in so everybody can feel at ease and secure including the press.”
