Quotes from today’s Daniel Ponce De Leon-Omar Estrella final press conference for Saturday’s Golden Boy Promotions from La Bodega Del Boxeo in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. De Leon vs. Estrella is a 12-round fight for the vacant WBC USNBC Featherweight title.

Daniel Ponce De Leon: “I trained really hard physically and mentally for this fight. Losing is not an option. I see myself winning, but I also know that my opponent has trained really hard and it’s going to be a very competitive fight.”

Omar “Dinamita” Estrella: “I’m very thankful for this great opportunity. It’s good for the fans to know the underdog fighters. We all know the quality of fighter that Daniel Ponce de Leon is and so I trained harder than ever. I have a family and I have to win this fight for them so I can bring food home. Because of that, I know I’m going to win this Saturday.”

Also in action will be Leo Santa Cruz against Alejandro Hernandez and prospect Marco Antonio Periban takes on veteran Rito Rubalcava.

Leo “Terremoto” Santa Cruz: “I’m appreciative of everyone who brought such a big event to Ensenada and you can expect to have fireworks from the beginning of the show to the end. Fans will not want to miss this fight!”

Alejandro “Payasito” Hernandez: “I’m thankful to be given this great opportunity. Leo Santa Cruz is a very good young fighter, but I have no doubt that my experience will be the difference on Saturday. Fans should not miss this event, because they are going to be the winners.”

Marco Antonio Periban: “I’m asking that the fans come out and be a part of this great event on Saturday night.”
