JAIME MUNGUIA, FORMER WBO WORLD CHAMPION:
“As I have said before, Derevyanchenko is a great fighter and a great warrior. Without a doubt, I believe this is going to be a great fight. A win against Derevyanchenko would put us on a path towards a world championship.”
“I feel like all fights are great challenges. This June 10, we have a very strong fighter in front of us. I expect to see a Derevyanchenko who is hungry for a win. He has been in some close fights with some of the division’s biggest stars like Jacobs, Golovkin, and Charlo. This fight with me will also be a great combat, but I hope to obtain the knockout and leave the ring as the best man standing.”
SERGIY DEREVYANCHENKO, SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:
“I’m a tough fighter, and I am regarded as one of the top fighters in the division. If Munguia’s team has big plans to make him a superstar, he is going to have to fight people like me and win. It’s definitely not going to be an easy fight for either of us.”
“Because this fight is at 168 pounds, I expect for Munguia to be at his optimal best and strongest and I will also be at my optimal best and strongest.”
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS:
“Every fight that Jaime Munguia is in, is a difficult fight. This fight against Derevyanchenko is a tough one because of his style. It’s going to be a clash of the titans. It’s going to be an all-out war. That’s the reason why fans love watching Jaime Munguia because he is a warrior and a fan-favorite when he steps inside the ring.”
“When Derevyanchenko fought Daniel Jacobs, Carlos Adames, when he fought GGG and all these fighters at 160 and 168, he was in do-or-die fights with them. People know that Derevyanchenko comes to fight. We are all betting on Jaime Munguia to put on a spectacular show, to maybe even be the first one to stop him. And then hopefully the WBC does the right thing and orders the fight with Charlo.”
HANE MOSLEY JR, NABO MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE CONTENDER:
“D’Metrius Ballard is an excellent opponent. He’s his only loss was to the man on the left of me, Jaime Munguia. So he’s a great fighter. I am ready to show my skills and show what I’ve improved on, and show that I’m on my way to being a middleweight champion. I’m not saying I want to be, I’m saying I’m going to be the middleweight champion. The confidence starts here (pointing to his head). If [I] don’t believe it, who else is gonna believe so, I believe it. I will be a middleweight champion of the world.”
D’MITRIUS BALLARD, NABO MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE CONTENDER:
“I think fighting against Shane Mosley Jr. is a perfect opportunity for me coming after my first defeat against Jaime a year ago. He’s coming off back-to-back wins, impressive wins, and I feel like it’s a perfect opportunity for me to get my name back in the middleweight contender list and continue my dreams and aspirations of becoming a world champion.”
ANTHONY SALDIVAR, SUPER WELTERWEIGHT PROSPECT:
I was born and raised here in Ontario, California. Funny fact, I used to work here at Toyota Arena, so fighting here is a blessing, and I feel very privileged and honored. So come Saturday Saturday I’ll be putting on a big show.
JORGE CHAVEZ, SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT PROSPECT:
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Oscar, Eric, Golden Boy Promotions, SOA, and of course, Bernard for giving me the opportunity to fight on June 10th. Expect great things from me, always.
RICARDO SANDOVAL, FLYWEIGHT PROSPECT:
“I’m very, very blessed to be fighting at the Toyota Arena, being close to home in front of my family, friends, and supporters. I want to thank SOA and Abraham, Oscar, and Eric Gomez for the opportunity for giving me a platform to showcase my skills. I trained really hard for this fight and I guarantee an action-packed fight, it will steal the show.”
FERNANDO BELTRAN, PRESIDENT OF ZANFER BOXING:
“Everyone knows that this fight between Munguia and Sergiy is a tough fight. Everyone knows we were looking for the best fighter to put against Jaime.”
“Jaime Munguia is on the dance floor, and he is willing to dance. The problem is that the other dancers decide to never show up. After this fight, whether it is GGG or Charlo, Munguia is ready to fight. Whoever is out there in his weight class, we are willing to fight.”
