TIM TSZYU

Here we are, at the culmination of a journey I’ve been on my entire life. Every step I’ve taken has been for this moment. Saturday night is where we fight for glory, where we add to the Tszyu legacy, proving we’re the ultimate boxing dynasty. Preparing for someone like Fundora isn’t easy, but champions adapt and overcome. I stand here as a testament to the old-school fighters, living out what I preach. Fundora might tower over many, but we’re all human at the end of the day. I channel the spirit of Mike Tyson into this fight, ready to make every moment count. Watching Manny Pacquiao dominate back in 2009, I knew this was my destiny. Now, facing Cotto in the audience, it feels surreal. Fundora’s coming to fight, but I’m here to expose his weaknesses and shine a light on mine. This fight is just the beginning of many great battles to come.

SEBASTIAN FUNDORA

Life’s full of surprises, and here I am, headlining in Vegas, ready to seize a massive opportunity. It’s my time to claim the world champion title, following in my sister’s footsteps. A setback doesn’t define me; it’s all about rising to the occasion and proving I’m the best at 154 pounds. Tszyu’s the top dog, but I’m ready to take the crown. Being the underdog fuels my drive to showcase my true grit this Saturday, fighting for my dream.

ERISLANDY LARA

Grateful to all who’ve made this possible, I’m charged and set to deliver an unforgettable fight. The time for talk is done. My actions in the ring will speak volumes, and Zerafa’s about to learn that firsthand. I’m feeling powerful, primed for a knockout before we hit the halfway mark.

MICHAEL ZERAFA

Come Saturday, I’ll be claiming the WBA world title, you can count on that. We aim to bring three titles back to Australia, me and Tim. Having Donaire in my corner is a game-changer; his wisdom is invaluable. I’m more than ready for this, and it’s time for Australia to make its mark on the global stage, starting now.
