Hernandez, Arslan promise to perform to the max this Saturday!

Here are the main quotes from today’s final press conference ahead of the fight between IBF Cruiserweight World Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (28-1, 14 KOs) and Firat Arslan (34-7-2, 21 KOs) this Saturday at the Erfurt Exhibition Hall in Thuringia, Germany.

Yoan Pablo Hernandez: I have trained careful with my focus being completely on the task ahead this Saturday night. I did not have this kind of focus for my last fights, as I had to battle many problems outside of the ring. I almost give up but my wife and my coach motivated me not to let myself go. Now, I am stronger than ever. August 16 will be my proving point.

Firat Arslan: I want to become the oldest cruiserweight champion of all time. I know that this is my last chance to glory and I did everything in preparation to make my dream come true. Coach Fritz Sdunek is going to be my key factor against Hernandez. When I fought Huck for the second time, I made many mistakes, which are not going to happen again. You will see my best performance – ever – on Saturday.
