Quotes From Judah – Matthysse Press Conference

ROBERT GUERRERO, Former Two-Division World Champion:

“I want to thank God for the opportunity because with everything that I’ve been through with my family, I would never be here without God. The training and hard work is done. Now it’s time to fight. Vicente and I have known each other since  the amateurs and now we are fighting in the pros and I’m excited to get in there and handle my business.”

VICENTE ESCOBEDO, 2004 U.S. Olympian & Top Contender:

“Everything is done. My preparation is done. This is the best camp I’ve ever had  and I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m excited to fight for the first time on the East Coast. I came here for one thing and that is to win and show that there is a new sheriff in town.”

DAVID ITSKOWITCH, COO of Golden Boy Promotions:

“Lucas has a 93% knockout rate and only one guy has gotten past the fourth round. He is one of boxing’s best kept secrets but it will be out on Saturday night. And the co-feature has two young fighters, both in their prime. They both have a lot  on the line and are both warriors that will take on all comers.”

LUCAS MATTHYSSE, Undefeated Top Contender from Argentina:

“We worked really hard and I know I’m going to take this win back to Argentina!”

“I trained for speed working with Sergio Martinez. I’ve never seen a fighter train like Sergio. I will benefit from the experience of working with him. Zab’s speed will not be an issue on Saturday night.”

“I’m going to hurt him with my body shots. It’s only Zab and myself come Saturday night. No one can help him.”

KATHY DUVA, CEO of Main Events:

“We are bringing back a renewed and revived World Champion with Zab Judah. We know he is capable of what he’s expected to be. When he decides to turn it on, he’s a  force to be reckoned with. Zab is a former Junior Welterweight World Champion,
a former undisputed Welterweight World Champion and the future Junior Welterweight World Champion.”

ZAB JUDAH, Former Junior Welterweight World Champion:

“I’d like to thank Lucas Matthysse for having the confidence to take this fight.

This is a great opportunity to be back in this position. Saturday night is going to be electrifying. It’s a celebration.”

“Everyone has a plan. He has to step to me. My hands aren’t slow, and I don’t lack power. Inside the ring, I feel very comfortable. We’re prepared for everything.”

“I’ve heard that one of his (Matthysse) strategies is that Zab’s gonna get tired. Let me tell you, I’ve been training very hard; I’ve been climbing mountains in Las Vegas. I feel great. Zab’s not gonna get tired. I’m gonna shock everyone.”
