Maurice Hooker

“This fight means everything for me. I hope Jose is ready. I will be the champion. I don’t want to bet on eating Whataburger. Let’s bet on breakfast in the morning with my belts. I’m pumped about this fight being home in Dallas. Jose is good fighter and he’s come ready to fight. I’m ready to go one round, I’m ready to go two rounds, I’m ready to go 12. But the way Jose fights, he will run into my right hand.”

Jose Ramirez

“I am looking forward to showing my skills to the people of Texas. Going to new places is part of being a superstar and that’s what I want to become. In order to make a unification fight, I had to come to Maurice’s backyard but I am looking forward to using this opportunity. I want to make you all proud. My team knows I am ready, I know I am ready.”

Amir Khan tells Teofimo Lopez how to beat Vasily Lomachenko

“We have had an amazing first eight or nine months with DAZN. All of these great fighters have been active, most especially Tevin Farmer who continues to get in the ring to defend his belt and this weekend has a tough mandatory fight in front of him.

“I am desperate to see Maurice Hooker win this fight on Saturday night. He is a great man. But overall, this is why we called this show ‘All or Nothing’ because each guy comes in with a belt and will leave with both titles. It’s going to be a tremendous fight and I cannot wait for this.”

Tevin Farmer

“I had an amazing training camp. I know a lot of fighters say this but this was really my best camp. No cheating. Eight weeks. Six days a week, three times a day. I think this will be my best performance ever. As you can see, I am skinny as hell right now but I am not dry. I feel great. I feel motivated again, I want to take this thing to a new level. Saturday on DAZN, you will see me take it to that new level. I want Gervonta Davis, I want JoJo Diaz. I want unifications. But God willing, you will see on Saturday night and then we will be there for a big fight.JoJo Diaz, you next!”

“Since my draw against Jono Carroll last year, I have been waiting to get this shot. I am looking forward to Saturday night and bringing the belt back to France.”

Tremaine Williams

“I finally get to showcase who I really am. Come Saturday night I’ll show what I can do.”

Austin “Ammo” Williams

“Without you guys I wouldn’t be myself without the support that Eddie has given me I wouldn’t be here. I constantly get great opportunities to showcase my skills. I’m super dedicated to this sport, I do the work on it everyday day. It really is a blessing for me. I’m here to change the world and this is my way to do it. Eddie and my team is helping me do that. I love everybody, thank you for your time.”

Maurice Hooker has credited his tight-knit team for getting him to the edge of greatness as he prepares to face Jose Ramirez in a World Super-Lightweight unification battle on Saturday night at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas, live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.

Hooker (26-0-3 17 KOs) penned a deal with Matchroom Boxing USA and DAZN alongside his long time promoters Roc Nation Sports last July as he entered a new phase of his career as WBO ruler having traveled to Manchester to take the title from Terry Flanagan in June 2018. The 29 year old saw off the challenges of Alex Saucedo and Mikkel LesPierre on the road before landing the unification clash with Ramirez (24-0 16 KOs) on home turf.

The Dallas ace attributes his path to the point of unification to the men that have guided his career from the start in trainer Vince Parra and his assistant manager Arnie Verbeek and promoter Dino Duva, and hopes to repay their faith and support with a big night of celebration after Saturday’s pick-em clash.

“I just like to smile and be happy in boxing and my life,” said Hooker. “I don’t like big crowds even outside of boxing, I just hang with a few people. I don’t like too much attention and you get people arguing around you and you have to worry about everybody. I keep close to the people I trust because I know that they have got my back. All you need is a few great people and you will be OK.

“Vince and I grew up with each other, learned the sport together and did everything as a partnership, the trust is there with us and I know that whatever he tells me to do in the gym or in the corner between rounds is the right advice to get the win.

“We’ve done it all from day one, gone on the road and stayed in dirty hotels to get great sparring with Terence Crawford, Miguel Cotto and more, but now we’re in the best hotels as World champion! We’ve done it all and been through a lot. It’s good to have someone in your corner that you trust as much as I do with Vince.

“There’s a lot of fighters in and around San Diego, we’re down the street from Mexico so we can get fighters in with that Mexican style. We drive to LA, Big Bear and Las Vegas and get great work as we’re right in the middle of that.”

Hooker and Ramirez clash on a bumper night of action in Arlington, as Tevin Farmer defends his IBF World Super-Featherweight title against mandatory challenger Guillaume Frenois. Tramaine Williams takes on Yenifel Vicente for the vacant USBA Super-Bantamweight title and a trio of unbeaten talents look to continue their 100 per cent KO records in Nikita Ababiy, Artur Biyarslanov and Houston’s Austin ‘Ammo’ Williams.

Heavyweight Joey Dawejko meets Rodney Hernandez over ten rounds and there’s action for three Dallas fighters in Stephen Acosta, Javier Martinez and debutant Darius Bagley.
