Andre Berto and Robert Guerrero meet this Saturday night on HBO in a 12-round welterweight clash. Yesterday, the fighters discussed the coming battle.

ROBERT "THE GHOST" GUERRERO

"There is nothing left to say. It's time to fight. I'm ready to fight and take care of business on November 24."

ANDRE BERTO

"This has been a long time coming. I've had a hell of a year, going through a lot of trials and tribulations. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I've learned a lot about myself and how strong I am to get through what I've been through. I'm in a whole other mind frame and have a whole new motivation.

"I had a tremendous training camp and I'm in the best shape that I've been in in a long time. I'm focused and I think that's the most important thing.

"I want to thank Team Guerrero for taking the fight. He's a tough opponent and you definitely have to respect him for going through what he's been through with his wife. There's nothing to do but respect a man like that.

"I know he's coming to fight, so that's going to make it more exciting.

"I'm in shape and I'm ready to get back out there under the lights and have fun like I used to."

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Golden Boy Promotions

"November 24 is a special Thanksgiving treat for fight fans. In both fights, you have two warriors wiling to face each other to prove they are the best in their weight classes. It will be electrifying night of boxing.

"With the main event, we are expecting record breaking numbers on HBO because of the magnitude of this fight. The winner of this fight is in line to face the best, the Mayweather's and guys like that. Guerrero is a tough guy in the welterweight division and not scared to fight anybody. He is fighting one of the best and that's why we respect him.

"I don't care when you [Andre Berto] lose or how you lose, but when you come back and knockout your next opponent in the fifth round, that's a man on a mission."
