Here’s a glimpse into what the fighters expressed during their Tuesday talk:

Subriel Matias:

“I’ve been training hard and I’m in top shape as the fight nears. I’m confident this fight won’t go the distance. Given our fighting styles and records, expect a knockout.

I’ve grown since my 2020 loss. Now, I’m laser-focused and ready to prove I’m the real deal. I’m not underestimating my opponent, but I’m prepared to make a statement.

I see this fight as a game. Watch what happens after round six. I’m not just talking, I’m ready to prove my skills and make Puerto Rico proud.”

Shohjahon Ergashev:

“My journey here has been long. I’ve trained hard and am mentally prepared for my first title shot. I respect Matias, but I’m bringing a surprise for him.

Matias should focus on making it past the sixth round. I’m excited to showcase my skills against him. This fight is crucial for me and my country, Uzbekistan. I’m ready to claim the title.”

Hector Luis Garcia:

“I’m in great shape and learned a lot from my past fights. I’m focused on winning and proving my last loss was a fluke.

Roach talks a big game, but I do my talking in the ring. I don’t see him as my toughest opponent, but I’m ready to defend my title and aim for unification next.”

Lamont Roach:

“This training camp has pushed me to my limits. I’m ready to shine and dethrone Garcia.

I’ve grown since my first title fight and am on a winning streak. Garcia is just another obstacle. I’m confident in my skills and ready to prove I’m the best in this division.”
