Andy Ruiz Jr

"I'm very happy that I won the victory. Not the way that I wanted to, but a victory's a victory. I'm happy that I'm here again in Macao, China. And I'm very happy for all the people that show me love here and all the people that are putting more attention to me.

"Before everybody would underestimate me, and they still do. I hope they realize what kind of fighter I really am after the show they've just seen. I want to thank the media. What can we do without them? They're the ones who get us out there. I'm really happy with the results.

Billy Dib

"I congratulate (Evgeny) and his team on the victory. I had a great training camp so I have no excuses. A really big thank you to Top Rank, SMS Promotions, 50 Cent and the team.

"Thank you so much for believing in me, my dad and all my friends and family. They came out and supported me. Thank you so much. Everything in life happens for a reason. God has others plans for me. I appreciate the opportunity."
