The following are quotes from Guzman and Vazquez following their workout:


I am training to go 12 rounds. If Barrios thinks hes going to knock me out in the fourth like he predicted, hes got another thing coming. Hes never going to see my head Ill be moving so fast around him.

Where Im from, the Dominican Republic, is known for making great baseball players. But Im going to show that we have some great boxers there too.


I feel really good, really motivated right now. Im just concentrating on the fight and relaxing. On Sept. 16, Ill be focused, relaxed, well-rested and ready to go.

My training is going really well. Im in peak physical condition and hitting harder.

I really want to win this fight for my family and for Mexico. This will be a defining fight for me. When I beat Gonzalez, Im looking at Manny Pacquiao and Marco Antonio Barerra in the future.

Its going to be a tough fight but Im prepared for whatever comes. Im confident that my training will get me the win.

I want to thank Sycuan Ringside Promotions for helping me get to this point in my career. I am very thankful for this opportunity.
