Quotes from Mosley and Mayorga from final press conference at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday before this Saturday's showdown at the Home Deport Center in Carson, CA.
Mayorga to Mosley: "I'm glad you're throwing out the first pitch at the Dodgers game tonight. You should be a catcher for the way you take take right hands."
Mayorga to talkative Mosley cutman "Captain" Cassius Green, who always wears his trademark captain's hat, after Green heckled Mayorga from the audience: "I'm glad this guy has his captain's hat on because he and his man are going down like the Titanic on Saturday."
Mayorga after shaking Mosley's hand: "It's cold and sweaty. I know Shane's afraid of me. All I ask of you [Mosley] is that you come and fight like a man. Don't run or else I'm going to buy you roller blades and a pink outfit to go with the pink gloves I gave to you at the last press conference.
"I already retired Fernando Vargas, an L.A. boxing icon, and I plan to retire another on Saturday night. Mosley needs to be at home doing the dishes for his wife."
Mosley: "Mayorga tells a lot of jokes and stories, but he always comes up short. Yes, he won against Fernando Vargas in November, but he didn't knock him out. Remember that when you stand toe to toe with me [Mayorga]. I want you to take it like a man.
"Everyone wants to retire me. I'm not going anywhere. I'm here to knock guys out."
