FLASH QUOTES:

GERVONTA DAVIS

“I was in New York for the Thurman fight about three weeks ago and got off track a little bit. I was heavy there, but once I got back into the groove and back to training it was fine. I feel fine. Making 130 is not a problem. It’s not a distraction. I feel fine. I’m not dehydrated and my face isn’t sunken. I’ll be ready to go tomorrow.”

HUGO RUIZ

“It’s kind of expected. He’s missed weight before, so it’s not surprising. I feel great at this weight of 130 pounds. This is the weight I want to be at. I’d fight every month if I could.”

MARIO BARRIOS

“the meaning of this fight is to keep showcasing my talents and to represent my city of San Antonio. Of course Zamora is dangerous, but come Saturday night I’ll be more dangerous.

If it were up to me I’d be fighting for a world title tomorrow night.”

JAVIER FORTUNA

“I’m not looking for the knockout. If it comes, it comes. If it doesn’t come, then I’ll take it by decision.”
