"It’s been very special to get my story to reach the masses and inspire millions across the world. And if I do win, I will be the first cancer survivor to be world champion."
JARROD FLETCHER, Middleweight Contender

"It’s been a long road but I can’t wait for Saturday night. This is my chance and I’m going to take it."
SADAM ALI, Undefeated Welterweight & 2008 U.S. Olympian

ANTHONY PETERSON, Lightweight Contender

ZACHARY OCHOA, Undefeated Super Lightweight Prospect
"I’m excited to be here at Barclays Center today and especially on Saturday. I’m ready to fight and I’ve been training hard.
"For the past month Golden Boy Promotions has been doing a hell of a job. It’s an honor for me to be fighting on this card with all of these fighters. I can’t wait."
ERIC GOMEZ, Vice President of Golden Boy Promotions
"We’re very happy to be here once again in Brooklyn at Barclays Center. I think we have a terrific card for everyone
"Barclays Center is quickly becoming the capital for championship boxing here on the East Coast.
"Danny Garcia is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport. He comes to win. He comes to knock you out. He has been fighting his whole life. Danny has proven himself every time he gets in the ring. He was supposed to lose to Erik Morales, he knocked him out, he was supposed to lose to Amir Khan, he knocked him out. He was supposed to lose to Zab Judah and he beat him.
"These are the toughest fights. Not only to be a world champion but you have to be able to prove you belong. That is all Danny does. Proves he belongs every single fight.
"People have had their own opinions about the main event. This will be an exciting fight. I’ve never seen Danny Garcia in a boring fight and this is Rod Salka’s time to fight. Ever since we’ve worked with Rod Salka, he’s always wanted to fight the best. He is going to take full advantage. He’s been working very hard for this fight. It’s do or die for him. When you have those elements it makes for a great fight."
