Undefeated WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley Jr. and four-division world champion and Mexican icon Juan Manuel Marquez hosted their final Las Vegas news conference on Wednesday in the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas.

Juan Manuel Marquez: Only three days to the fight and I prepared myself very hard because I want to give another great fight. This is a new and tough challenge for me, but I trained very hard. Everybody knows me. I don’t like talking outside the ring. I’m talking with my fists in the ring next Saturday and I’m ready. Everyone asks me ‘how do you feel at 40 years old?’ I feel very happy and I feel great, like a young fighter with a warrior heart.

Hall of Fame Promoter Bob Arum: Juan Manuel, I’m sure you’re very happy to be 40. If I was 40 I’d be even happier and I’m more than double your age. If I was 40, none of these girls would have a chance.

Timothy Bradley: (After a long stream of thank yous) It’s very seldom that you have two guys willing to fight one another that are quite evenly matched. It’s going to be an interesting night Saturday night. I’m looking forward to it. I always call fight night ‘fun time.’ It’s time to have fun! I can’t wait and I said everything else to the media so I don’t have much to say. I just want the world to be ready for a tremendous, tremendous fight Saturday night.
