Boxing Quotes: Mosley vs. Mayweather Undercard Fighters

Before their appearance on Saturday's Shane Mosley vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr fight card at MGM in Las Vegas, NV, the undercard boxers met the media.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez: "I'm happy to be here and eager to get in the ring. I have a lot of respect for my opponent, but like everything, I come to win. I will prove to the world who is the better man. I am very motivated to give the American fans a glimpse of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

"This fight is very important to me. It is under a great main event in Mayweather-Mosley and in the world capital of boxing, Las Vegas. With all due respect to Mayweather and Mosley, I think I'm going to steal the show.

"I'm preparing for a very special fight. I've worked very hard for this fight. I am prepared both mentally and physically for a win. I have a big responsibility to both the fans in Mexico and the fans here in the United States to prove to them that I am a true fighter."

Jose Miguel Cotto: "I trained very hard for this fight and I gave this camp my all. I am ready to have a great victory over 'Canelo' Alvarez. I just want to say that I'm not fighting at my weight, I'm fighting at his weight. I hope he comes in the same condition as me. I can't wait for Saturday night to have a big win.

"I'm being looked over for this fight. I plan on surprising a lot of people and I'm looking forward to having a title shot after this fight. My brother told me to do my thing as I know to do it best. He gives me confidence. I look forward to having a big win for my family and for Puerto Rico."

"We have to give respect to the troops over seas and to all of those who serve and protect this country. I have the American flag tattooed on my left arm 'cause I love America. Me and my brother have hearts of gold, hearts of warriors.

"Saturday you're going to see a great fight. No respect to Sugar Shane Mosley and Floyd Money Mayweather but this is going to be a fight. I've looked up to Mosley and Mayweather all my life and I want to be able to fill their shoes one day."
