Andre Berto: “I had a tremendous training camp and it’s going to be a terrific night of boxing on Saturday night. Carlos Quintana is a former world champion and a crafty southpaw. This is my third straight southpaw so I’m pretty used to them by now and I had some great southpaw sparring in training camp. I’m excited to get back in ring and honestly, I wish the fight was tonight. I’ve never been this focused, hungry and motivated for a fight before and Carlos Quintana has a major task on his hands on Saturday night. I’m going to let everything loose for a good cause, and you are going to see the best of me on Saturday night. It’s going to be a terrific night of boxing and I hope everyone will come out and support this very important cause.”
Carlos Quintana: “Andre Berto is a great, young fighter with a lot of power, but I’m also a great fighter and I will prove it Saturday night. There can only be one winner on Saturday night and I will be the winner and the new WBC Welterweight Champion of the World. I trained very hard for this fight, for a world title fight and for Berto. I did everything necessary to take the belt from Berto. You might see Berto acting very calm and peaceful right now and this a great cause, but he’s a fighter I’m prepared to see something different on Saturday night, and it will definitely be a fight.”
