JOSE ANGULO, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER:

“My rival is good, but I am prepared to obtain the victory and show them who Jose Angulo is.”
“We are here to give a war. I am an intelligent fighter and can adjust to any style. Whatever Gonzalez throws at me I will be ready.”
“We have to prove right here, right now that I am a skilled fighter before we fight the top of the division. Once we win here, the rest of the division will come.”
MANUEL “GUCCI MANNY” FLORES, SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT CONTENDER:
“I am feeling strong and ready to go. I am hungry and will be at Olive Garden after the weigh-ins, enjoying some chicken with light olive oil. We have to feed the body, but feed it right.”
“Fans can expect fireworks on Thursday. My opponent is a tough guy, but I am going to go for the knockout. You will see explosiveness from me, a hard-hitting Manny.”
