As the countdown to Saturday’ big doubleheader at Barclays Center in Brooklyn continues, undefeated unified WBC/WBA super lightweight world champion Danny “Swift” Garcia, unbeaten WBO middleweight champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin and world-rated 160-pound contender Fernando Guerrero participated in a media workout Wednesday at the famed Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn.
Danny Garcia: “I feel great and 100 percent ready. I’m motivated, hungry and sharp. I’m focused and I’m ready to go in there on April 27 and put on a tremendous show. I don’t need negativity to motivate me. I’m a positive person. Negativity doesn’t motivate me. I’m motivated by positive things.”
“I’m ready to take over Brooklyn. I guarantee I have more fans than Zab has coming to the fight.”
“My training camp was perfect. I think it was the best training camp I’ve ever had. Everything was on point…sparring, running, training, conditioning. Everything went perfect.”
Peter Quillin: “Guerrero deserves a shot at the belt. It’s something he worked for all his life, just like I did. Nobody’s going to come here and beat me. I already know I can put in a hard 12 rounds. This time, I got the best that money can buy. I got the best trainers and the best camp. This has by far been the best camp in my whole professional career. I know I’m well prepared and I’m ready. I’m keeping this belt in New York City.”
Fernando Guerrero: (On what he’ll bring to the ring to get a win) “Explosion. We’ve got to bring that smart, we’ve got to bring that power and we’ve got to bring that hunger. It’s better shown in the ring. I’m not just excited for the fight. I want people to know what I can do.”
