DEVIN "THE DREAM" HANEY: WBC SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION:

“DAZN, they put the bounty up. On April 20th I'm capturing the bounty and we coming home with the victory inshallah."

"KING" RYAN GARCIA, SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD TITLE CONTENDER:

“When I first came into the game, I just wanted to make a bunch of money and then I did that. But now I want to go for the legacy, I wanna go for the belts and Devin's in the way. I'm on my vengeance arc. I'm ready to get back in blood in everything so I'm coming straight for his neck. I promise you, I'm coming straight for you, it's going to be ugly.”

OSCAR DE LA HOYA, CHAIRMAN AND CEO OF GOLDEN BOY:

“This is the weight class to watch, this is the fight to watch, the best fighting the best. When I started Golden Boy, that was my vision to have the best fight the best and we're here now today. I'm super excited because when you build a star you must fight in New York."

If you guys didn't know they fought 6 times already in the amateur and they're three and three, so this one does count. This fight here is like they say - for all the marbles - this fight here is to see who the best fighter at 140-pound division."

BERNARD HOPKINS, PARTNER OF GOLDEN BOY:

“So now that we are here a lot of us gotta be mindful when we ask for something because what you ask for, you might not want when you get it. These two young fighters, these two young men, not kids, gotta understand that to be great you must do great things and fight the best in the division… and that’s what Golden Boy’s set out to do.”

BILL HANEY, MANAGER, DEVIN HANEY PROMOTIONS:

“An assignment that Devin sent me to do was to approach the only human being that's a Hall of Fame fighter and a Hall of Fame promoter and thats Oscar de la Hoya. I put the honest on him, I said listen when you were when you were Hall of Fame fighter you fought everybody so as a Hall of Fame promoter I put the honest on you that you are now going to make the fight between two guys in their prime just like you did.”
