RAU’SHEE WARREN, Three-Time U.S. Olympian
"I’ve been thinking about training with these guys since I found out I was fighting on a card with Lamont. This is like family. We are all training with each other. We’re all pushing each other and we’re going to give the crowd a show from the beginning to the end.
"This is going to be a crazy show. I know I’ve got the best outfit for my ring walk, but everyone else here is telling me they have something in mind and that’s how we do it here. Friendly competition all day.
"This training camp has been looser and different. The talent here isn’t half stepping it. We’re pushing each other to the next level and I’m loving it. I can’t wait for fight night."
ROBERT EASTER, Lightweight Prospect
"Training with Lamont is great motivation because he’s a real champion. It motivates me and makes me train harder so I can get to where he is.
"I’ve been focusing on a lot of cardio to build stamina and strength. I need to get stronger in my weight division.
"My coaches [Mike Stafford and Barry Hunter] have been helping me a lot with my strength.
"I think it is going to be a quick fight because I have been preparing really well for this one. It should be a good fight for me."
JAMEL HERRING, Lightweight Prospect
"The last time I fought in Atlantic City, I opened the show so I’m getting used to it. I just want to get everyone hyped up and start the night off right.
"Working along side Barry Hunter and Lamont Peterson has been so intense, but we’ve had fun overall.
"This camp has been a chance for me to learn and get great advice. Barry’s a great trainer and Lamont is a world champion. I’ve gotten a lot of experience in this camp. It’s a great atmosphere."
BARRY HUNTER, Lamont & Anthony Petersons’ Trainer
"Lamont is a fighter that can make all kinds of adjustments in the ring. There are a lot of fighters that can’t go toe to toe [like he can].
"Lamont is a little more versatile than other fighters that I have seen and definitely more versatile than other fighters Matthysse has faced in the past.
"This fight ends with us raising our hands and going on to the next one.
"We’re approaching this fight differently than fights in the past. If you look around in the gym, there are a lot of people that Lamont has been sparring with - junior middleweights, middleweights and even light heavyweights.
"This isn’t anything that we can’t handle.
"All of Lamont’s other fights leading up to this point have been very good fights, some of them even great fights, but I believe this is the fight that can totally take him over the top and put him in the lotto for a fight with someone like a Floyd Mayweather.
"Lamont has had to deal with pressure his whole life. This fight, as opposed to some of the things he’s gone through as a kid, won’t get to him or shake his confidence."
