Tomasz Adamek (31-0, 21 KOs)
“I would like to thank SHOWTIME and Don King for allowing me to be here. I have trained very hard for this. I invite everyone to watch a great show Saturday night. I will bring the title back to Poland.”
Chad Dawson (22-0, 1 NC, 15 KOs)
“I am here to bring the title back to the USA. As Don King likes to say “Only in America.’ I am 150 percent prepared. I am destined for greatness in boxing.
“I have only seen Adamek’s last fight and what I can see is that he has bad defense. He has a hard head and is an aggressive fighter. If an aggressive fighter gets in the ring with a boxer, it is a perfect match for the boxer.
“My training has changed, I run with heavy boots to build up my legs. Floyd Mayweather Sr. has me sparring more that I have ever sparred before.”
Jesus Chavez (42-3, 29 KOs)
“There has been and there will be a revolution come Saturday. I have always been in a revolution, struggling with gang, jail, etc. I have the American dream, to be successful. “Only in America.’
“I would like to wish everyone good luck and some will have a successful night and some won’t. I am considered a hard puncher and if there will be a knockout, there will be one.’’
Julio Diaz (33-3, 24 KOs)
“If you watch this fight, you will not be disappointed, Make the best man win, but I will knock him out. I am not underestimating my opponent, but I am the stronger fighter and it is my time to shine. I will not fail!”
