  Love vs. Spark Final Press Conference Quotes

Montana Love

On Steve Spark: Hes getting too comfortable. Ive been playing it cool because you are from out of town and youve been humble, but I will step on you, in or out of the ring. You are tripping, being disrespectful - just keep it on boxing, keep it cool.

I am not worried about Richardson. On Stevie, I take my hat off to him, hes a great fighter, pressure fighter, but its nothing Ive never seen before. In this same arena, we had the Russian [Ivan Baranchyk] who said the same words as Stevie - and he got laid out and hasnt fought since. He has a great style, but you havent fought anyone brother. Its going to be a tremendous fight; were going to run Stevie into some traps and were going to put his ass to sleep. I know he is coming to fight but hes getting taken out.

He has never faced anyone like me, hes had a good camp, hes had some great sparring, but its not going to be enough.

On Richardson Hitchins: Ive never seen a fighter getting dropped [by a promoter] while being undefeated. He had an opportunity to fight me in 2019 when I was independent and he was with the Money Team. They turned me down. Now Im sitting next to the big dog [Eddie Hearn] this is the real money team, and now hes chasing the bag, as he should.

Steve Sparks

I havent come halfway across the world to not beat Montana Love. And not just beat him, Im going to knock this man out. Hes chinny and hes got a glass jaw.

Ive asked for this kind of opportunity because I believe Im ready for a World title next year. So, I must go out there and beat people like Montana and not just beat him but do it in good fashion, so I must have my wits about me, I know the level of fight this is. Im excited to be on DAZN and Im going to shine, he knows this is a hard fight for him, and hes a hard fight for me. This is the fight of the night; its going to be great. I dont see this fight going the distance.

Its do or die in this fight. All or nothing. Im not going home without that belt. Im taking it back to Australia.

Richardson Hitchins

When you are facing somebody like me you got to come ready. A great fighter like me you should never ever slack not one bit, and Im looking to take care of business Saturday night. And after that if Montana Love even gets his job done me and him is next. And if he tries to hide from me and him fighting next, we got to see each other in 2023, thats my goal.

I came to Ohio cause Im the truth. I feel like Im the best fighter on this card and Im the best fighter in the 140lb division, so it starts like I said on Saturday night. Im going to show up and show out in his city and hopefully Montana can match that energy.

Yomar Alamo

Ive been prepared like I prepare for all my fights, and weve made all the necessary changes to look better and stronger in this fight.

Raymond Ford

Were coming here to dominate. Whether it comes down to a 10 round decision or I stop him early, it really dont matter. But Im coming out victorious.

He [Lukas] got the experience and everything, hes been around a long time 38 years old. Im just going to get him out of boxing and send him on his way out.

Sakaria Lukas

Saturday night Im ready to go. You eat or get eaten. Talk is cheap and we can talk the whole night or the whole day but its going to change once you get smacked in the face.

Were more than prepared to walk away with the victory.
