Floyd Mayweather:
“This is a great way for me to go out there and give people some entertainment. It’s an exhibition match, but it’s giving me a chance to do something different. 
“I love competing against fighters from all walks of life like in my amateur days. It’s all about entertainment. Nine minutes of entertainment. It’s going to be amazing. 
“I’m in the entertainment business. That’s what I go out there to do. I love to do this. I’m working out to put on a show for three rounds. 
“I’m going to go out there, have fun and do what I do. I’m enjoying life and I’m going to enjoy this experience.”
Tenshin Nasukawa:
“This is my first time coming to Las Vegas and I’m very excited to be here. The fight is very close and I’m training hard every day to face Mayweather and leave a mark. 
“This is a great opportunity and we’re happy to take it. I’m going to put everything out there and show my strengths. I think that I’m the faster fighter. I’m going to use my weapons against him. 
“There’s never been a Japanese fighter to face Floyd Mayweather in the ring. As an athlete, this is something that’s a great honor and a challenging task. I’d like to make a big impression. 
“I want to get the whole fight community, the whole country of Japan and the entire world involved in this fight. I’m going to go in there believing in myself and ready to prove myself.”

 Los Angeles, CA Five of the fighters appearing on UNDISPUTEDworked out for the media today in Los Angeles ahead of this Saturday’s world championship boxing event at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA and televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:20 p.m. ET/PT. 


Below are quotes from the participants.


Juan Francisco Estrada

“Victor Mendez and I have known each other since we were kids, we started together in boxing. But once you get in the ring you have to forget about that and give the fans what they want, a great fight.”


“I actually started my preparation a while back for the Sor Rungvisai rematch which was supposed to take place this coming February. But this opportunity came and I have to take it.”


“The first fight against Sor Rungvisai I know a lot of people liked and a lot of people say was one of the best of the year. However, a second fight would be even better as I would throw a lot more punches.”


“It’s been five years since my fight with ‘Chocolatito’ but the rematch is the one people ask about the most. My mindset however is to defeat Sor Rungvisai first and become a champion, then to fight ‘Chocolatito.”’


“HBO has been great exposure for me, I’m very proud that this is my fourth straight fight on the network. 


“I can’t tell you the round but I’m going to win on Saturday night by knockout.”


Claressa Shields

“I know that Femke Hermans lost against Alicia Napoleon and I know I can beat her.”


I’m very happy where my career is. To only have seven fights and to have accomplished all I have is a big deal. I’ve beaten the best and will continue to do so. Hannah Gabriels was a very tough fight but I proved a lot in that fight.” 


“I love that the sport of women’s boxing has been lifted for all female fighters. We’re getting better opportunities and I expect that to continue next year and in the coming years.” 


“I’m happy for all the support I’ve gotten and to be able to inspire others. Being a role-model isn’t about being perfect, it’s about being real.”  


Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes

“I’ve accomplished a great deal on my own in my career without a promoter and I’m very proud of that.”


“I’m super excited for this opportunity to fight Cecilia for all her belts.”


“Women’s boxing has made such huge strides but there are even more great female boxers under the radar. 

All they need is the platform. It’s great to see more and more opportunities coming to women’s boxing.”


“Cecilia has been around a long time and I’ve seen many of her fights. There’s no one else left for me to fight so now is the best time to fight her.”


“Cecilia is great at many things but I have a good game plan for Saturday night. Once we get in the ring I’ll know a lot more about how it’s going to go in the fight.”


Victor Mendez

“I was actually training to fight ‘Chocolatito’ but they chose Guevera because they said I was too big for him. I was really looking forward to that fight but I stayed in the gym and jumped at the opportunity to fight Estrada.” 


“Estrada and I have sparred many times when we younger and we were on the same amateur teams so we know each other very well. I don’t think of it as a rivalry, I just know a victory would be very big for me, that’s the way I look at it, a very big opportunity.”


“I’m very happy to finally fight in the United States and on HBO in a big arena.”


“This will be a war, I’m going right after him and I’m sure it’s going to be a very entertaining fight for the fans.”


Femke Hermans

“I had a fight in September and was in great shape and was ready when they called. I’m very excited to fight Claressa, it’s going to be a great night of boxing.”

“I’ve watched a few of her fights and know there are some things I do well which will bother her. She’s at a 

high level so I can’t make any mistakes against her.”

“It’s great to fight in the United States. In Belgium boxing is a very small sport but it’s much bigger here.”

“This has been a great year for women’s boxing and the future is very bright.”

Wilder-Fury Press Conference


“I think with the two knockdowns I definitely won the fight.  We poured our hearts out tonight.  We’re both warriors, but with those two drops I think I won the fight.  I came out slow. I rushed my punches. I didn’t sit still.  I was too hesitant.  I started overthrowing the right hand and I just couldn’t adjust.


“When you’re at each other and you have a great fight, we give each other all we’ve got.  At the end of the fight that’s what it’s all about.  He was just tell me great fight, he loves, and thank you for the opportunity.  We’re the best in the world.  The respect was mutual.


“I was rushing my punches.  That’s something I usually don’t do.  I couldn’t’ let it go tonight. I was forcing my punches too much instead of sitting back being patient and waiting it.  I really wanted to get him out of there give the fans what they want to see.


“I didn’t feel no pressure at all.  When I rush my punches like that I’m never accurate.  The rematch I guarantee I’m going to get him.


“I would love for it to be my next fight (on the rematch).  Why not?  Let’s give the fans what they want to see.  It was a a great fight and let’s do it again.  It doesn’t matter to me where we do it. 


“We’re the two best in the world and we proved it tonight.  When you get two warriors you get a great fight.  That’s what we proved tonight and I’m ready to do it again.”



“We’re on away soil, I got knocked down twice, but I still believe I won that fight.  I’m being a total professional here.  I went to Germany to fight Klitschko and I went to America to fight Deontay Wilder. God bless America.  The ‘Gypsy King’ has returned.


“I’m what you call a pro athlete that loves to box.  I don’t know anyone on the planet that can move like that.  That man is a fearsome puncher and I was able to avoid that.  The world knows I won the fight. 


“I hope I did you all proud after nearly three years out of the ring.  I was never going to be knocked down tonight.  I showed good heart to get up. I came here tonight and I fought my heart out. 


“I’ve been away from me family for 10 weeks.  I’m just going to spend some time with my family.  Well deserved. 


“One hundred percent we’ll do the rematch.  We are two great champions.  Me and this man are the two best heavyweights on the planet.”
