Miguel Cotto

"I feel great. We had a great camp and I'm ready for 12 rounds.

"I don't know what Trout will bring on Saturday night, but I know that I will be ready for him.

"I trained at a high altitude during this camp and it was great. Everyone will see Miguel Cotto at his best.

"Fans here in New York have always given me a great reception and I really appreciate it. I will give them what they want to see."

"This is such a great card and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

"I am honored to be able to train with Miguel Cotto. He is a great legend in Puerto Rico and he is one of my role models."

Jeffrey Fontanez

"It is an honor to be on a Miguel Cotto undercard.

"I feel ready to show the world what I am all about. I am very anxious and happy to be on this great card."

Pedro Diaz, Cotto's Trainer

"Miguel wants to win in front of all of the Puerto Rican fans on a great stage at Madison Square Garden.

"Our goal this week is to make sure Miguel makes weight and that he is physically and mentally prepared for Saturday night."

Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions

"Miguel Cotto is deservedly one of the three biggest names in the sport next to Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

"You could see at today's workout how big of a draw he is based on the media turnout.

"We are excited to be here in New York City. It is the Mecca of Boxing and the Mecca of Miguel Cotto.

"Miguel certainly could've fought an easier opponent. When given the choice between an easy opponent and a difficult one, Miguel always chooses the more challenging test. That is why he is Miguel Cotto and that is why the fans love him the way that they do."

Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports

"There is a noticeable build of energy and excitement as we get closer to the fight. Miguel Cotto is without question one of the biggest names in the sport.

"Every time he fights, it is a major event. But when he fights at The Garden, it is extra special.

"Austin Trout isn't as well known [as Cotto], but knowledgeable boxing enthusiasts know that he is going to be a difficult opponent for Miguel.

"This fight represents Austin's lifelong dream and it is clear that he is going to do whatever he can to capitalize on that.

"This is a true crossroads fight between an up and coming star and one of its established legends."
