Oscar de la Hoya: This is the type of event that fight fans will be talking about for months and years to come…These are compelling fights, top-notch fights and it doesn’t get any better than this.
“Vicious” Victor Ortiz: We’re ready and I know my opponent is ready and we’ll see what happens Saturday night. I can’t really call him [Mike Arnaoutis] an opponent, he’s a champion and I know he’ll be ready.
Joel Julio: I feel good, I’m ready for James Kirkland. Kirkland is a very good fighter, but he hasn’t been tested yet…I am looking forward to March 7 when I plan to knock Kirkland out.
James Kirkland: We trained very well for the fight. I know Joel’s coming prepared but I came to do what I came to do…Me and Julio are going to meet up in the center of that ring and we’re going to see whose chin is better.
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero: It’s about time I got out to San Jose to fight and I’d like to thank Golden Boy for putting on the show here. [Commenting on Daud Yordan’s “Ghostbusters” shirt] I like that little “Ghostbusters” sign on the back of his shirt, but the last person who came out with a “Ghostbusters” sign was Jason Litzau and I knocked him out in eight rounds.
