Juan Manuel Lopez: “One of my dreams will come true on October 10th, maybe a little sooner than expected but I’m glad it’s here. Even though Rogers Mtagwa doesn’t have a great record as some expect, I know how dangerous he is and I have to be well prepared to beat him. Bob mentioned that every time he works with Russel Peltz (Mtagwa’s promoter) brings a fighter to face a Top Rank star he gets beat, but that won’t happen on October 10. Not only am I going to win, but I’m going to knock him out. Viva Puerto Rico!”

Yuriorkis Gamboa: “Madison Square Garden is a venue that has such a great history with so many great champions have passed through here. I am honored that the Garden opened it’s doors to young champions to show what we bring to the table. The fans are going to see a great show on October 10th.”

Top Rank promotes this event in association with Arena Box-Promotion and PR Best Boxing.
