Weights And Quotes From Rhode Island And Philadelphia

JASON PIRES: I’d like to thank Michael for accepting the fight. It’s going to be a great show. I’m looking forward to tomorrow night and fighting for a title. I want to get back on top. I saw Michael fight on You Tube and he kind of went to sleep in a few.”

MICHAEL CLARK: “It’s great being back in Providence. I fought a guy from here who was 25-0-2, Gary Balletto, who was my friend on The Contender. I watched Jason fight on You Tube and not really impressed. He’s a good guy, local cop. It’s going to be a great fight..

JESSE BARBOZA: I want to thank Winston Thorpe taking the fight and coming up here on late notice. I think good, young fighters should put their undefeated records on the line against each other to help get boxing back.”

WINSTON THORPE: It’s a pleasure being here, so far. I’m hoping we put on a good one.”
