About the main event: “Jonathan Guidry is a gentleman and a scholar and a really nice person. When he gets into the ring, he loses his identity. He forgets about everything and everybody. His focus will be on the man before him (Bermane Stiverne).”
About the event: “We’re going to have a ball at the Casino Miami Jai-Alai on Saturday night.”
“This is a big fight. It’s going to be a good fight. I’m going to be in better shape than I was in my last fight. This is going to be my biggest fight.”
“I have another opportunity to showcase my talent. I’m ready. I put my heart and soul into the fight this weekend. I’m ready to show the world that I am ‘him.’ I’ll take the next guy and then the next guy. I want to be the next big thing.”
“Nigel (Fennel) is a good fighter, but it’s my time. I don’t care how fast he is and how strong he is. He has one mistake to make in the fight and then it’s over.”
“We’ve been working very hard. This fight was supposed to happen about a year ago. Some things came about and it didn’t happen. Now is the perfect time. We had a strong camp. I’ve been boxing for 13 years. It’s my dream, and my dream is coming true. I’m very excited and am going to put on a great show on Saturday.”
“If you know me, normally I don’t talk much. All the hard work was done in the gym. I am here to show that I am not just the top middleweight. I am the best middleweight in the world. You’re all in for a treat on Saturday.”
“I came here to be victorious against Green or whoever they put in front of me. I am grateful to be here and for this to be my first fight in the United States. I am going to be a great impression on my first show here.”
