QUOTES

Mauricio Herrera:

 

A lot of people didn’t expect me to be where I’m at today but I put in a lot of hard work. I fought tough guys in the past, put in a hard 8 weeks of training and this is it for me.  I was a late bloomer.

This is it for me. I’m ready for a big fight like this. A lot of hard work went into my preparation and I have waited a long time to finally face one of the best to prove myself and to show the world who Mauricio Herrera is. I am ready and I will perform.

Alvarado is a tough challenger and he showed it on all his fights but I am more than ready for him. Mike Alvarado has a lot of heart and that’s going to make for a good fight on Saturday April 14th.

 

This is it for me, I’m ready and I hope he’s ready.

 

Mike Alvarado:

 

This is going to be a great card, There’s a lot of great talent on this card. I trained hard for this fight and it’s one of the best camps I’ve ever had so I’m ready.

 

I’m ready to put on a good show like I always do and I hope Mauricio can swim because I’m taking him to deep waters.
