Broner vs Maidana press conference quotes: Beibut Shumenov vs Tamas Kovacs

Esther Lin/SHOWTIME

BEIBUT SHUMENOV

"It's great to be involved in an event like this, one of boxing's best of the year. I had a great training camp and can't wait to show the American boxing fans what I am all about.

"I know Tamas is undefeated, he's very ambitious and he came here to take what's mine. But I'm not going to let him take my title. I'm going to fight hard for what's mine. And I'm going to show the world that I'm the best light heavyweight champion of the world."

TAMAS KOVACS

"This is a very big opportunity for me. This is the fight of my life.

"I've been training and preparing for this fight since September. On Saturday, I'm coming out with all I have.

"It took me forty hours to get to San Antonio. It was a difficult trip, but it was worth it. This is the fight of
my life. This is my chance and I'm going to take it.

"I know Shumenov is a good boxer, but I'm good and also clever. So, he better watch out."
