PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

Hank Lundy: “I’d like to thank ESPN for showcasing my talents again. There were fireworks on July 4th and there will be even more tomorrow night. You can teach fighters how to fight but, if if you don’t have heart, you don’t have it. Anybody who knows Hank Lundy knows I’ll fight anybody. Training in Philadelphia I’ve fought everything including elephants and lions.”

John Molina, Jr.: “You have two great fighters in a no holds barred fight. My only prediction is you’re going to see a great fight. There will be fireworks tomorrow night.”

Joey McCreedy: “It’s going to be a tough fight, a war – the Fight of the Year. Me and Biosse are both hard-headed, stubborn who will fight anybody. I love the kid and his whole team. There’s no hate; we’re fighters, He’s in real good shape, I’m in real good shape. I’m glad to be sharing the spotlight with him on ESPN. It’s a make or break fight for both of us.”

Vladine Biosse: “My dream was to fight professionally and do it big-time. As a boxer I’ve taken a step forward every fight. It doesn’t get any better than this. I want to thank Joey for taking this chance and giving me an opportunity to share the ring with him. You’re going to get my best, as always. He’s coming to fight, I’m coming to fight. It’s going to be a great fight. Keep your eyes open, it’s going to be war.”
