DON KING, WORLD FAMOUS PROMOTER OF DON KING PRODUCTIONS
“I am very pleased and very honored to be able to here to have this press conference for all of these great fights that are going to take place here on Saturday. This is a super event. This is the ‘Fight for Freedom and Peace.’”
“‘The Fight for Freedom and Peace is dedicated this time to the brave and courageous people of the Ukraine. What we have here, with these guys that are fighting, we’re going to have a real good time.”
“All throughout the world, there’s just a sense that ‘nobody knows Trevor.’ On this side of the dais is ‘The Dream.’ This man has a dream, and that’s what America’s all about. This young man is undefeated, and his dream has been to stay a world champion. Yesterday’s nobody becomes tomorrow’s somebody. Let me bring up this young man here, the WBA heavyweight champion of the world, Trevor ‘The Dream’ Bryan.”
FRANCIS WARREN, DIRECTOR OF BOXING AT FRANK WARREN AND QUEENSBERRY PROMOTIONS
“I just want to say it is a pleasure to be here in Miami with Daniel and the team and I big thank you to Don and all his great staff for making us feel so welcome and putting on a great event.”
“Daniel has been waiting for this a long time and we respect Trevor tremendously as a world champion, but Daniel is here to do the business and we are fully confident we will be going home with the new WBA world champion.”
TREVOR BRYAN (22-0, 15 KOS), WBA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
“Hey, listen. This is who I am. This is Trevor Bryan. You see this face right here? I’ve been here for a long time, and I’m going to be here for a long time. First of all, I want to thank you guys as well for coming all this way to get this a** whooping. Don King, thank you, brother for setting all of this up.”
“Let me just say a couple more things. See my face again: this is Trevor Bryan, the undefeated WBA heavyweight champion. This fight is called the ‘Fight for Freedom and Peace,’ but before you have freedom and peace, you’ve got to have war, and war’s what you’re going to have on June 11. It’s going to be a war.”
“I’m nobody, you’re just going to walk through me, right? That’s not what’s going to happen. I hope that you’re ready because I’m telling you right now: this is going to be a hard night for you. You’re not going home across the pond with the belt.”
DANIEL DUBOIS (17-1, 16 KOS), NO. 1 HEAVYWEIGHT CONTENDER
“100%, I’m ready to rumble. I’m out here to make myself, my family, and my country proud. This is what I’ve been waiting for, and I can’t wait for Saturday. I’m going to have to go through Trevor and take that belt back with me on the plane. Let’s go!”
DACARREE SCOTT (7-0, 6 KOs), NABA GOLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
“I’m DaCree ‘Mack Truck’ Scott. I’m 7-0. It didn’t take me long to get to this stage. I’m sorry for your loss, but I’m going to say it again, this is what I do. If y’all thought my last fight was good, that was on three days’ notice. I had a full camp this time. It’s statement season.”
JONATHAN GUIDRY (17-1-2, 5 KOs), HEAVYWEIGHT CONTENDER
“Thank y’all for the opportunity to come back and fight again for another title. My promoter passed away, so I’m going to fight this fight for him, and I’m going to take that belt back to Louisiana.”
JOHNNIE LANGSTON (10-3, 4 KOS), NABA CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION
“I’m going to tell you what time it is. I hear what he’s talking about, but I’m going to bring this belt home. On Saturday, I hear him, but I don’t think I came all this far for nothing. It’s been my lifelong dream to be a champion, so I’m going to keep the belt.”
ISAIAH THOMPSON (6-1-1, 5 KOS), CRUISERWEIGHT CONTENDER
“My name’s Isaiah ‘Night Night’ Thompson. Yes, I’m going to be the challenger. I don’t really have too much to say, I’m just going to go out there and show it.”

WBA HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION Trevor Bryan has labelled his forthcoming opponent Daniel Dubois as a quitter who will be out of his depth when he challenges for the title on June 11 over in Florida.
The unbeaten Bryan, however, does acknowledge the threat posed by the young knockout artist Dubois and admits it presents a significant threat to his 22-fight professional winning streak.
“I fight like every fight is my last fight,” the New Yorker told Dev Sahni on the Unibet Lowdown. “I am gonna give my heart, my soul and every inch, every bit of strength I have in this coming up fight on June 11 because, even with the heavyweights, this career doesn’t last long. Every opportunity I do get with names like Daniel Dubois and fighters after this, you want to fight your hardest and show everybody you have the heart and show everybody your skills are going to carry you along.
“So yeah, I am treating this like it is my last fight,” added the 32-year-old, before making reference to Dubois’ sole professional setback against Joe Joyce at the end of 2020.
“Daniel Dubois is a strong fighter, he has fought some good guys, but I am on a different level. You saw that when he came up against some good opposition, he quit, gave up.
“You don’t quit, you don’t give up. I would rather go out on my shield. He is an okay guy but he is going in against a nightmare, I will be a nightmare for him and not the fight that he wants. Maybe he should have went back and tried to reverse the loss he had against Joe Joyce before he came to the champion.
“Now that he’s said he wants the champion, he begged for this fight and now he has it. He has it and now he has to pay for it. I’m not the type of fighter where you can step in the ring and think you can walk all over me. I am not heavyweight champ for no reason and on June 11 I’m gonna show everybody that I am a name that you are supposed to respect.
“I am that man who is going to be sticking around for a long time in this sport. I am taking over, so on June 11 you guys are going to see what Trevor Bryan, The Dream, is all about.”
Trevor Bryan v Daniel Dubois on June 11 for the WBA heavyweight championship will be shown live on BT Sport immediately after the Queensberry show from Telford earlier in the evening.
