“Spring Fever” Press Conference Quotes

Jason Pires: “There’s a lot of talent on this card. It’s going to be a great show. May 7th is going to be very exciting for me, probably one of the biggest fights of my career. I’ve done this since I was a baby and now I’m a prize fighter. I’m looking forward to putting on a great show. My last three fights I got better and better and this fight I will explode. Every time I fight, I feel like it’s my second home.”

Ricky Dawson: “It’s been a long time. I’m back in the ring, feeling good. I’m also a fight fan and have seen these other fighters. This is one of my dreams. I took some years off. You have to be 100-percent into it and I am with my new team. I’m on my own. I don’t just want to be a prize fighter; I want to be world champion. It’s going to take some time but it will happen.”

Jesse Barboza: “I’m being trained by somebody I watched growing up and idolizing (‘Irish’ Micky Ward). To be in the gym with him, working side-by-side, is a blessing for me. This is going to be a great show. Jason Pires stole the last show and my fans asked if he was fighting on this card. It’s going to be a great show.”

David Bauza: “I’m happy to be fighting here again. It’s where I had my first fight. I promise my best fight May 7, the best fight of my career.”

Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes: “It’s really challenging to put on female fights and I thank Jimmy (Burchfield) for supporting women’s boxing. My goal is to be a well-rounded, exciting fighter with a good fan-base. We’re wrapping up a good training camp. I love boxing. We’re very excited.”

Vladine Biosse: “I’ve been out for a while; it seemed like forever because I love this game so much. I’m here! May 7th I’m ready to get it on. My hand is good – thanks to Dr. Margles. I’ve been sparring and working hard. I’m ready for May 7th. I’ve been working so hard, waiting for this day, and it’s almost here. I’ll give you guys all I have. I’m going to bring it.”

Edwin Soto: “I’m ready for whatever comes May 7th. I’m training hard and I’m going to do what I do best – fight in the ring!”

Diego Pereira: “I feel like this is my debut because I haven’t fought for almost a year. I’m glad I’m on this card. There’s going to be a lot of action with some hard hitters. I’m in competition because I’m a hard hitter and I’m going for Knockout of the Year. I’ve worked real hard with a new team and new coach.”

Keith Kozlin: “My opponent, I wish you the best of luck. I know you want a win, but you’re not going to get it. I’ve trained hard and I’m feeling strong.”
