Below are quotes from a Wednesday conference call with the three of the four fighters featured on Showtime's December 3 bantamweight double-header. First up is Anselmo Moreno, who will defend his WBA belt against Vic Darchinyan in the co-feature.

"We've faced all kinds of fights and styles. Not all fights are the same and not all fighters are the same, so we're preparing ourselves 100 percent so that on Dec. 3 it's going to be my night and that everyone will leave pleased with my performance."

"It's one thing to say something but it's another thing to go out and do it. We are prepared and we have watched Vic Darchinyan. We are going to do everything to counter him and make him feel uncomfortable."

"I've had eight title defenses but I needed a name like Vic Darchinyan to put my name out there on the map. I'm very happy to be with Golden Boy Promotions now and my mindset is all about Dec. 3 and coming out victorious. I know after I win I will want to challenge the other winner to unify the titles. Why not fight Abner Mares after this fight, or Agbeko? I want to unify all the titles at 118."

"My style fascinates me; when they are right in front of me and I can make them miss. They miss and I counter them. That's the art of boxing. Hit and not be hit."

"I'm going to go in there and do my job. I'm going to punch him and attack him and make him miss."

"Let the winner be the winner. Whoever wins let the right guy win."
