(From Monday press conference in Cancun): “I’m coming to fight on Saturday night and I promise I’m going to beat you. I’m going to punish you and beat you up. I’ve been fighting for seven years and I’ve never ducked anyone. I hope you’re planning on coming to fight on Saturday. You can run no more.
Oleg Maskaev: “I’m ready and I’m coming to win on Saturday night. I have worked very hard.”
Nate Campbell: “It has been a hard road for me to get here but I am here now. I don’t have anything to do with what’s going on between Juan Diaz and Don King but I can tell you this: On Saturday night I’m going to take you to hell, Juan.”
Juan Diaz: “I’ve fought in Mexico many times and it’s great to be back home. I fought here when I was 16 years old. Nate Campbell is a good fighter and I’m ready to go 12 rounds.
