30.08.04 – LAMON BREWSTER (30-2, 27 KOs): “Plain and simple, I am looking for a victory. It does not matter if it is a decision or a knockout. There is no way I could predict if it will be a long or short night. I am looking for all my hard work, perspiration and faith to pay off. ‘’
KALI MEEHAN (29-1, 23 KOs)
“This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I plan to make the best of it. Lamon and I are friends outside the ring, but this is business and when the bell rings Saturday night, it is going to be a fight.’’
CORY SPINKS (32-2, 11 KOs)
“There is absolutely no way I am taking anything for granted. Miguel Angel Gonzalez was a great champion. People do not regard you as the best until you beat the best, and I definitely think Gonzalez is the best guy out there now. I am looking forward to the fight and giving the fans a polished performance.’’
MIGUEL ANGEL GONZALEZ (50-3-1, 40 KOs)
