Robert Guerrero: “I got a chance to size him up today. I saw how tall he is. Picking my spots – seeing where I have to go. After looking at him, I know he’s coming to fight. I’m expecting a war. Like all Argentine fighters, I know he’s got that hunger to prove he’s worthy of this big opportunity and make the most of it…I’ve seen some tape on him. He’s one of those guys that is durable. A durable tall, lanky guy. His height is going to help him. I am expecting a tough fight for sure. This is like a world title shot for him. I don’t know what he is going to bring to the table and that is exciting for me.”
David Peralta: “I want to go down the same path as Marcos Maidana and Lucas Matthysse. They were given great opportunities in their careers and took advantage of them. I am going to take advantage of this opportunity…I am well prepared. I came here to fight. I am prepared to go the distance. I am going to throw a lot of punches, move around and be ready to get the decision.”
