Below is what the fighters had to say about their upcoming events:
JAIME MUNGUIA, WBO INTER-CONTINENTAL MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION:
“I am very ready and excited to be fighting in Anaheim among all my fans in Southern California. I can assure everyone that it will be a great fight and a great night for boxing.
“I know that Rosado is coming off a great fight, a great knockout, and has a lot of experience. I know I have to be careful, but I have faith in my training and am confident that I will be victorious on Saturday.
“We make a great team with Erik Morales. Thanks to him, I have had a great training camp, and I feel like my boxing skills have advanced.
“I know on Saturday I have to keep my distance and apply pressure where I need to. I need to make sure I dominate the action in the ring.”
GABRIEL ROSADO, MIDDLEWEIGHT CONTENDER:
“Camp with Freddie Roach has been great; I feel good, I have a good vibe. All the hard work has been put into training camp, and I have learned that all the work has to be put into training camp; and I am happy and fully confident that we did our job.
“I feel like, right now, it’s the most fun I have ever had in my career. On Saturday, November, the people will see the best Gabe Rosado, and I am excited to display my skills to the world.
“I think Munguia is going to bring it. I am more focused on the job that I have to do. This is not an unfamiliar situation for me, and I think this is where experience comes into play for me. My experience tells me that fighters like Munguia will come to me; I will not need to chase him. He will be right there, and I have to make my shots count.”
ALEXIS ROCHA, WELTERWEIGHT CONTENDER:
“I want to thank Golden Boy Promotions, especially Robert Diaz, for bringing me back to Orange County and allowing me to fight again in front of my friends and family.
“I know that I am going to stop my opponent on November 13; that is the goal.
“I am prepared for the most dangerous opponent in front of me, and this is my opportunity to make my city of Santa Ana proud.”
WILLIAM ZEPEDA, LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER:
“I am very happy and thankful with my team for all the knowledge and support, and for Golden Boy Promotions for giving me the opportunity.
“I want to work and give the fans a good show, and I want to show who William Zepeda is. We are well prepared if it comes, but I will still give the fans a good show if it doesn’t.
“This is a difficult fight, but we have the talent, we have a good team, and I am confident in myself. When the opportunity for a world title shot comes, we will take it and demonstrate to the world who William Zepeda is.”
JEOVANIS BARRAZA, WELTERWEIGHT CONTENDER:
“I know Alexis is an excellent prospect of Golden Boy and that he is a high-level fighter, but that does affect me. I am hungry, and I want to earn my place. I want to thank my team for this opportunity, and I want to assure them and everyone out there that: I know myself, I know who I can fight, and I know that November will be a good night for me.
“Like all boxers, we remember how much we sacrifice for the sport, and that motivates me, personally. I am motivated and know that I am doing this for my kids and my family.”
