What have they said?

Juan Francisco Estrada: “We’re completely ready for this fight, both physically and mentally, and going into this fight I believe that I am 100 per cent ready for this challenge. In my boxing career I’ve had 47 fights, some of them have been really tough, and I believe this fight will be another one of those tough fights, but I’m totally ready to win convincingly on Saturday night.

“I’m going to go out all-action from the first round like I always do but in an intelligent way, that will be my plan when I go into the fight. My plan is to go and show, as he says I’m finished, I’m old, my aim is to show that is not correct.

“It’s going to be a really good weekend for all the people, particularly the Mexican people. God willing, we get the victory on Saturday, because it will be much better for Mexico. We just want to go in there and show that El Gallo Estrada has still got big things to do in the sport.”

Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez: “I might not show it, but this is the most excited I’ve been for a fight my whole career. I know what is at stake and what this win can do, not only for my career but for my life. My newborn, it would open a lot of doors for her, and a lot of doors for my career, this is what it’s all about. This is the fight that I’ve been wanting for a while, now that I have it I gave it my all in training and come Saturday night that’s going to show.

“This is the biggest fight I have ever been in, not only skill wise but crowd wise, there will be a lot of Mexican fans rooting for Estrada, but I will feed off of that negative energy towards me. So I am ready to go, I just can’t wait to step inside that ring.

“It’s just a matter of getting in there and it actually unfolding. I do believe it could start a little technical but once I figure him out, it’s a wrap.

“I feel like I have the skills to stop anybody that I am put in the ring with, so on Saturday night I will prove everyone wrong once again.”
