MIGUEL BERCHELT

"I want to say thank you to everyone, and to the media for the support. I am very happy that this is my third time fighting in the US, and the second time as the main event on HBO with Golden Boy. I want to thank Golden Boy, HBO and promoters at Zanfer for the great opportunity.

"I am very well prepared. I know I have a very good, strong, former world champion ahead of me. Takashi Miura is a typical Japanese kamikaze that is coming with everything. That's why I prepared myself very well. I respect him tremendously, and I know it's a great fight on both sides. I am going to give my Mexican people a great show, and take my belt back home."

TAKASHI MIURA

"I want to thank HBO, Golden Boy Promotions, Teiken Promotions and the WBC for this fight. The champion is a great fighter, a tough fighter, but I am taking back my belt with me. Please expect a very exciting fight from me. Thank you very much."

JEZREEL CORRALES

"I want to thank Golden Boy and Oscar De La Hoya for the opportunity. I want to thank Rogelio Espino and the WBA for the opportunities that I have this moment. I feel very happy, very motivated, and very positive for the opportunity that has been presented to me. I'm here with a lot of energy, and to give this victory to my mother."

ROBINSON CASTELLANOS 

"This is literally a dream come true. I remember a couple years back, my father and I were watching Yuriorkis Gamboa fight, and we were breaking him down, and we talked about how we would try to win. Who would have thought that years later we would have been able to accomplish that? Who knows what is next. I am thankful for the opportunity, and I am excited to show everyone what I am capable of."

JOE SMITH JR

"I am glad to be back at the Forum on HBO, I am expecting a great show on Saturday. Sullivan is a great fighter. It's another great accomplishment for me and my career. I want to thank my coach Jerry Capobianco, and my team for the opportunity."

SULLIVAN BARRERA

"This fight is very meaningful for me. My father has come all the way from Cuba to watch me. It's been eight years since I have seen him, and this will be the first time he will see me fight professionally. I'm thankful to Golden Boy and HBO for another opportunity. Joe Smith, Jr. is a great fighter, and I am looking forward to a great fight this Saturday."
