Juan Manuel Marquez
“As everyone knows this fight had to be rescheduled. That said, I am happy that it is here in Tucson (Ariz.) and on SHOWTIME. This will be a great fight for the fans.
“Rocky Juarez is a tremendous fighter. It will be a tough fight, but I am prepared for what he will bring.
The layoff did not affect, hurt or help me. I am fit and ready for this fight.
I am 100 percent healthy and I am focused solely on Juarez. I am not thinking past him. This will be a tough fight. I am ready and prepared.
I always keep my fight preparations the same. The one time I changed to adapt to a fighter style, I lost.
“I like to dedicate this fight to all the men and women in the U.S. armed forces, serving here and overseas.”
“I am happy to have the chance to fight for a world title. This is a tough fight but I have taken my time to prepare for it. I believe I deserve it. I will get the win.
“Guerrero is a complete fighter but he has some weaknesses. I know what they are and I will work on that in the ring.
“I am very happy to fighting on SHOWTIME. I am glad they were able to put this show on and deliver it to boxing fans.
“Guerrero knows that I am coming with everything. He knows that I will put the pressure on him to perform.”
“I trained a lot longer for this fight than previous fights. I got a great cardio workout because we trained in higher elevation.
