IBF jr welterweight world champion Lamont Peterson, WBC interim super lightweight beltholder Lucas Matthysse, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander and welterweight contender sopke to reporters today about their fights on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Lucas Matthysse: “It is very important for me to win this fight and do it in big fashion. It’ll open doors for me. I want big names and it starts Saturday….I’m not worried about a decision. I’m coming to do work and I’m believing the judges will give a fair decision.”
Lamont Peterson: “It’s boxing and I know I’m gonna get hit. I just dont think about that before the fight. If I get hit hard, I do….I want to prove that I am the best in the weight class. Some people think it’s Matthysse so I had to fight him.”
Devon Alexander: “I know he’s a tough cookie who is coming to take my belt. I’m 100% ready and 100% prepared for him.”
Lee Purdy: “I’m coming to fight and I’ll find a way to win!”
