Fight week is officially underway with the grand arrivals yesterday of all participants in the Canelo-GGG card. Be sure to check back daily for all the latest updates and streams from Las Vegas. The combatants had this to say on what to expect on Saturday night.

CANELO ALVAREZ:

“I’m bothered by all the stupid things they’ve been saying. I don’t know which one to laugh about or get angry about at this point. But their statements are all excuses for the loss they will take this Saturday. I have been using all of these statements as motivation for my fight on Saturday. I know that it can be dangerous to go in the ring with a hot head, but I have experience. I know how to use this anger in the ring intelligently. I’m happy for all the support the fans give me, and I will give them a great fight this Saturday.”

 

GENNADY GOLOVKIN:

“Mexican Independence Day is a huge day for boxing and boxing fans. I am a professional.  I am not nervous but I am very excited to be able to defend my titles on a major Mexican national holiday for the third consecutive time.  My Mexican fans like true fighters and true heroes. This may be a rematch but it is a different story, a better story, a bigger story.  This fight is the biggest level for me, 100%.  I am healthy and strong.  I had my best training camp.  I have the fight I want against the fighter I want and on the biggest stage.  Why shouldn’t I be happy?  If Canelo gives me a chance and fights like he claims he will, I will knock him out.  It is time for the Big Drama Show.”

JAIME MUNGUIA:

“I’m very happy for the support that I’m getting from the fans. I feel they are drawn to me because of my style of fighting and because they know I like to give a great show to the fans. Right now, it’s just about maintaining weight and preparing for the weigh-in. I know Cook is tough and difficult fighter, but you’re going to see a more relaxed and concentrated Jaime Munguia this Saturday.”

 

BRANDON “BAD BOY” COOK:

“It’s a dream come true for me. Two fights had gotten cancelled. This is a huge opportunity for my team. I didn’t come here to get paid, I came here to fight. Munguia’s tough. I was running this morning, and I saw him running, so I know he’s preparing well. This is one of the toughest challenges of my life. I can’t thank Golden Boy enough. This is it, and I can’t wait.I know he’s ready, I’m ready. I’m going to be his toughest opponent to date.”

DAVID LEMIEUX:
“I’m excited for Saturday night. I promise you some fireworks. I hope everyone enjoys the show. He has a big mouth. He likes to talk garbage on social media. He’s not the best kind of guy. I’m going to knock him out and make a lot of people happy. I’m at 100% right now. You’re going to see David Lemieux who is at his best this Saturday.”

GARY “SPIKE” O’SULLIVAN:

“It means a great deal for me. It took me eight years to get here. I’m more ready than I’ve ever been before. He’s going to be cooked. He’s very one dimensional. He does the same thing over and over again. He says the same stuff over and over again. I’m going to teach him a lesson on Saturday night. I’m a very hard worker, I’ve been a hard worker my whole life. I fight like a Mexican.Watch out David, you’re getting knocked out.”

 

 

ROMAN “CHOCOLATITO” GONZALEZ:

“I thank God for this opportunity. This is exactly what I have been praying for. I’m ready to make my comeback against this tough opponent. I will show the world I can still be a world champion.”
