Photos and Quotes: Brandon Rios Ready for Urbano Antillon's Attack

BRANDON RIOS

"It's not like I hate him, but I don't think we like each other. I don't like him. He says he is going to test me and that I'm not ready for what he is going to bring to the table. I hope he tests me, but he had better be bringing a really big table. If it's a small table, he is definitely getting knocked out.

"I feel very good, I'm ready to fight and I'm totally relaxed and focused. This is a great fight for television and the fans. We are both going to be getting after each other.

"I worked very hard to win the belt. No way I'm giving it up in my first defense. Not against this guy.''

ROBERT GARCIA (Rios' Trainer)

"I know Brandon and it is not a big deal for him to be mad at an opponent going into a fight. Actually, it's a good thing for him. If it wasn't, I would worry about it, or say something. But Brandon needs it and it won't affect how he performs. I would be more concerned if he wasn't on edge before a fight.

"Brandon is a true fighter who is 100 percent healthy and fit. He's looking forward to this fight very much and he's ready for 12 hard rounds if that's how long it lasts. We had a tough camp, but camp is always fun when Brandon is involved. We're all looking forward to Saturday night.''
