“I fight for my family and the people of Mexico and this is going to be a great fight for the fans. John Molina is a tough fighter, and it’s going to be a war, but I will die in the ring to keep my WBC title.” – Antonio DeMarco
“This fight means the world to me. It’s what I’ve been dreaming about since I was 10 years old to win a world title. I’m going in their with nothing less than a victory. I think it’s safe to say the fight is not going the distance and it’s going to be a fight of the year candidate. He’s going to come to fight, I’m coming to fight and I plan on leaving September 8th as the new world champion” – John Molina Jr.
“This is what boxing is all about a throwback fight with two fighters that come straight across the ring. There is no quit in either one. I don’t think it goes twelve rounds. Antonio DeMarco has that special something that makes a man from the streets, from the way he was brought up, from eating off the streets from having no home. He’s never lost that dream and like he says, Dream your dream because they could come true if you work hard. DeMarco is one hell of a fighter” – Gary Shaw
“This is the type of fight that could stand on its own. There’s no doubt in mind that this fight is going to be a war for as long as it last. John Molina is only looking for one thing and that’s knockout after knockout, and those are the ingredients for a great fight.” – Dan Goossen
The reason I think this fight is going to be a memorable fight is because their both going to fight each other. My thinking is instincts will take this fight into a nose to nose battle. If that happens its going to be a fight that the media and fans will remember forever” – Joe Goossen
