The fighters for Saturday’s big DAZN fight card in Dallas addressed the media in a press conference to discuss their preparation and predictions before entering the ring at Ford Center at The Star.
Mikey Garcia: I’m here to do one thing and I’m here to take over, show everybody that there’s a lot more to Mikey Garcia. I keep reminding people that I’ll be able to display all my skills on Saturday night and prove to everybody that I can be a serious contender at welterweight.
Jessie Vargas: I know Mikey is a good fighter. I have respect for him but the minute the bell rings it’s fight time. I plan to give you a fantastic performance to a point where you’ll be surprised and acknowledge that I am the one of the best in the division and I am en route to becoming the best.
Chocolatito Gonzalez: I am in the best condition for this fight. I have taken advantage of this opportunity. I come with God’s blessing that I will win Saturday night.
Khalid Yafei: I don’t know how I’m going to top Roman’s speech because he’s just someone I’ve looked up to for a very long time. It’s a bit hard for me because I’m fighting him Saturday night and I’m going to have to do what I’ve gotta do.
Jay Harris: I’m here to win and I think I’m going to pull off a massive upset on Saturday.
