ANTONIO “RELENTLESS” OROZCO, Undefeated Super Lightweight Contender:
“There is a lot more excitement in a fight when you have two undefeated fighters going toe to toe.
“I’ve seen him fight a couple of times. I can’t overlook Keandre Gibson. I’ve been through some hard times but not all hard times are the same. I’m here, I’m ready, let’s fight and get this going.”
KEANDRE “THE TRUTH” GIBSON, Undefeated Super Lightweight Contender:
“Boxing critics sleep on me; they don’t realize I’m one of the top prospects in boxing right now. I’ve sparred a lot of guys with experience; I’ve sparred Canelo and Pacquaio. I know what I’ve got to do.
“It’s time to step up, if I’m not ready now then I’ll never be ready.”
