Mesi, Miller Quotes and Weights

JOE MESI: This is my first fight under the CES banner. Since my reinstatement Ive had six tune-ups, which I was entitled to after 2 years off. We used to run our shows in Buffalo, but needed a promoter to help us and after talking to jut about every promoter, we signed with CES and Jimmy Burchfield. Hes a great guy who has been promoting shows in the Northeast. Im very comfortable with him. Hes a father figure who looks after his guys. This fight Ive dedicated to Kevin Everett.. Im considered the third sports franchise in Buffalo with the Bill and Sabres. I know a lot of players although I dont know Kevin, who suffered a terrible injury in the first week of the season, and now hes paralyzed. Hes back home in Houston, where I often train and Im going to visit him the next time Im there.

I was No. 1 in the WBC and its nice to be fighting for the (WBC) money belt, money belt. Shannon, I know, has trained very hard for this fight like I have. I respect him as a fighter. He has heart. Ive fight a lot of guys who wee more skilled than me, but a guy with more heart and determination always beats the most skilled, and thats why Im undefeated. Some things have been said, I think it may have been blown out of proportion, but well settle things in the ring tomorrow night. Tomorrow night will tell a lot about his career, my carerr, and where our careers are going.

SHANNON MILLER: Ive waited for this fight a long time. Ive trained very hard.

JASON ESTRADA: I want to thank James Northey for coming to my hometown to fight me. It shows a lot of courage. A guy vacated his title rather than fight me, Josue Blocus. It shows the type person he is. Were going to put on a great show.

JIM NORTHEY: Ive been training for a while to step up in class. I had a few fights fall through. This fight popped up 1 1/2 weeks ago. This is a great opportunity.
