On Saturday night in Mississauga, Ontario, Samuel Vargas and Brandon Cook were both successful in fights at the Hershey Centre. Here are some quick quotes from the two victorious fighters, and make sure to check out our full recap if you missed that.
"I just keep learning every fight. I didn't have a long amateur career and I've learned how to throw a good punch. All of my improvements and added power are thanks to my trainer, Billy Martin.
"Because of where I came from, through all of the struggles, this fight meant much more to me than winning my first title belt. This country means so much to me. I can't put into words what winning this Canadian belt really means to me. This was a great accomplishment because of the long road I've taken. There were a lot of people there cheering my name. It was exciting.
"You know, I love Montreal. Four of my first five pro fights were there. The people are very nice, but, right now I don't think they like me too. Hey, that's boxing."
