Silence Mabuza Training Photo & Quotes

01.11.05 - Photo: TOM CASINO / SHOWTIME: Undefeated IBF No. 1 contender and IBO champion Silence Mabuza skips rope during a brisk workout Tuesday at Caesars Tahoe. In what figures to be a sensational matchup in Saturday's co-feature on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on west coast), Mabuza will face IBF bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez. Unbeaten IBF champion Jeff Lacy defends against No. 5 contender Scott Pemberton in a battle of hard-hitting super middleweights in the main event on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING.

Mabuza Quotes: "Silence is golden and I am confident I will show the world that Saturday night. It is about time that Africa has another fighter like Azumah Nelson and I am the second coming of Azumah.

"This is going to be a great fight. Rafael Marquez in the No. 1 bantamweight in the world. But I will be No. 1 after Saturday.

"Everything is perfect with me. Things couldn't be better. I am in great shape..

"It was a little disappointing that we couldn't fight when we were supposed to last month, but injuries happen and I am over it.

"I can't wait for Saturday. I just want to get it on."
