Khan – “This is a big fight for me. My dream was always to fight in Las Vegas and having my name lit up on the strip. This time has come for me at the age of 24-years-old. Maidana is a big threat in this division but it’s my time. It’s going to be a big night and I want to end the year with fireworks.”

Roach – “We’re ready for the fight. We’ve been all over the world training for this fight (with) different sparring partners and different scenery. It’s been a really good 10 week camp. Amir is ready and this is going to be ‘Fight of the Year.”

Maidana – “This is a very important fight for my career, but not the hardest.”

Ortiz – “I know I’m up for a tough fight and I don’t look past anyone. There has been questions about a rematch (with Maidana) or a fight against Khan. They have their thing to do Saturday and I have mine. He’s a great fighter and his record speaks for itself. Enjoy the fight Saturday night?”

Peterson – “This fight is a must win for me. Look forward to a good fight this weekend.”
