RECAPS

OSCAR DE LA HOYA

"Golden Boy Promotions is accustomed to putting on tremendous fights at the StubHub Center, and tonight was no exception,'' Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya said afterward. "Each and every fight was fast-paced and action-packed, and all the fans who turned out to watch boxing at its best went home fully entertained. We look forward to the July 12 and Aug. 9 fights on SHOWTIME and to many more in the future."

ROBERT GUERRERO

"It was a rough fight. I didn't want to get caught into his style, but right out of the gate I did. I'm not a runner, I will fight. He is a tough, great fighter. I want to give the fans what they want. I was in great shape. I took the shots very well because of the shape I am in because of CrossFit."

"I wanted to get on my toes but I fell right back into banging with him. I have been out for a year and it's time to get back to work again. I am getting back in the gym right away. He hit me with a great shot to the left eye and I had to get right back up and keep fighting. There's no backing down."

"There are a lot of fighters out there. We will enjoy this win and then get back to seeing who is out there. My opponent came in 110 percent better than what you see on TV because it was his opportunity to shine in the SHOWTIME main event. This was his opportunity and he came to fight."

YOSHIHIRO KAMEGAI

"I'm OK with the decision. My fighting spirit stems from the fact I flew all this way to win. All through the fight I kept thinking I am here to win, I felt he shook me a couple of times and weakened my legs, but I hurt him a few times, too. But he recovered quickly.''

VASYL LOMACHENKO

"I am very happy and excited to be a world champion. I want to thank all the fans that came here to support me from Ukraine. To join the Klitschkos as a champion from Ukraine, I would like to thank them."

"The plan built by our team was great, I was trying to land the punches and I did. I landed punches very well. I started from the body and went to the head."

GARY RUSSELL JR

"It was a fair decision. It's disappointing to lose, but we're warriors and we will go back to the drawing board.

"He had real good lateral movement, we tried to close the distance with the jab but he was moving well. I tip my hat to him.

"My past opponents have no bearing on this fight. I need to execute better going forward. I don't think he's better than me, we knew he was going to use the lateral movement.

"Honestly we didn't execute the game plan. We wanted to close the distance between the double and triple jabs but I couldn't get to him as easily as I wanted to.

"I would definitely fight him again, anytime, any place.''

DEVON ALEXANDER

"Overall I'm happy with my performance,'' he said. "I'm my own worst critique, I wanted to shut him out. But he was a tough, tough competitor. I want to thank God, Al Haymon, my family and coach. We got it done St. Louis."

"He keeps coming, tough competitor. I wanted to pace myself and see my punches more, instead of going out there and missing shots.

"I'm a good fighter with skills and I will be the best one day, I promise you."

JESUS SOTO KARASS

"I was trying to focus on the body, that was the plan, but I hurt my hand in the fifth round. Alexander was very fast. He was hard to hit and he has good skills. I was surprised he decided to hang in there with me and exchange.''

DOMINIC BREAZEALE

"I was just starting to boil, just starting to get warmed up. After I hit him good with a couple of good right uppercuts I knew it was just a matter of time.

"He hit me a few times but I thought that was great. I finally got hit by a guy who came to fight. It's always an honor to fight a fellow Olympian, so I'm definitely feeling happy about this performance."

"This was my first scheduled 10-rounder and I was prepared to go 10 rounds, but I knew I had to pace myself without holding back.''
