  Taylor vs. Serrano Final Press Conference Quotes

Katie Taylor

The amount of media we have had to do all week was huge. Iím sick of talking about myself but itís been an amazing week so far. This is definitely very different than how I started boxing when I was eight or nine years old. Like Eddie said, I had to pretend I was a boy to get fights. Womenís boxing wasnít even a sanctioned sport in Ireland. Now here we are many years later headlining MSG, the most iconic venue in boxing. Making history as the biggest womenís boxing match in history is just incredible. This is all of the sacrifice that I have been working for, for sure.

The fact that this is going to be a sell out on Saturday night, there is a great appetitive for female fights and this is very special. Itís the best versus the best and itís just a great boxing match. This isnít just the best female fight you can see right now Ė itís the best fight you can watch right now, male or female.

I donít train to lose any fights. I train to win. Iím going to step in there confident that I will come out victorious. The best part about this fight is being able to inspire the next generation. This fight on Saturday night is going to inspire a lot of young girls and that to me is the best part about this.

Amanda Serrano

Itís been a long time and itís finally happening. Now Iíll shine thanks to all of you guys at Madison Square Garden. I couldnít ask for a better place to make history once again. Sitting here I made history. I won my golden gloves here at the Hulu Theater. And I made history on DAZN with you becoming a seven-division world champion and I plan to do the same thing at the big garden. Itís my first time there. I shine under pressure.

One of my goals is to become undisputed champion and she has that and Iím going up, once again, two divisions to fight one of the best fighters in the world.

Itís been an amazing long journey getting here to fight Katie Taylor. Timing is no better than right now. I am so looking forward to Saturday.

We are probably the two nicest fighters. There is no bad talk between me and Katie Taylor because the fights are won inside the ring, not outside. We donít need to talk bad about each other.

Our accomplishments got us where we at right now and we are making history together. No matter what happens on Saturday night, this is for the fans, women in general, and women in boxing and womenís boxing is only going to grow more.

Jessie Vargas

I want the bell to go so I can punch this guy down. Iím looking forward to that moment. Iím here to talk about boxing. This is my main career. This is my livelihood. Iíve been boxing since I was 8 years old. How can anyone question it?

I love what I do and Iím great at it. Thatís why I continue to stay on the top, top 10 in the world. This Saturday night I will knockout Liam Smith as I said before.

Iím not here to shy away. Iíve said it before, and Iíll say it again. Iím here to fight. Iím gonna knock him out and Iím ready for it.

Liam Smith

When Jessie pulled out last time, they said wrap yourself in cotton balls because youíre not dropping this fight. Iím happy Jessieís fans need to needle it back a little bit, but Iím very excited for this.

I say what I feel, and I do feel that I can be the first one to stop Jessie, especially at 154. 154 is my division.

Once the fight starts and it gels, it will gel into a very good fight. I fully believe I will take over.

I feel like Jessie is going into politics now, heís got one foot out the door. I will give him his other foot. I will give him his exit.

Franchůn Crews-Dezurn

When I win this fight, itís already written, thanks to all the people around me. Elin is a great fighter. Leading up to this fight, Katie and Amanda, itís the best of the best.

The difference between me and Elin Ė sheís a soccer player turned boxer. Iíve been boxing for over half of my life. I ainít gonna lose to no half town boxer. And itís all gonna go down on April 30.

Elin Cederroos

Itís an honor to be here at MSG and Iím the first Swedish boxer to come hereÖ Ive been ready for such a long time now.

Galal Yafai

Fighting at MSG in my second fight is a dream come true. I learned how small the gloves were and how it was walking into a small gym to fight. Iím here just to win and to look good.

Miguel Cartagena

Itís a great approach for where Iím at in my career right now. Iím super excited and I had a really good camp. Iím ready to show.

Austin Williams

Iím very thankful for Chordale Booker because you donít always find fighters who want to put their undefeated on the line.

Nothing comes close to the things that I have sacrificed for this sport and yíall are going to see that.

Chordale Booker

Weíve been waiting for a fight so thatís what we are moving to. Iím ready to fight anybody and make my dreams come true. And thatís what is going to happen on Saturday. Itís my time. I have put in my work.

Skye Nicolson

I heard yesterday that this is my third fight in 57 or 59 days, so I am very active and want to show what Iíve got.

Katie and Amanda have been trailblazers for womenís boxing. They have paved the way for my generation, and I hope I can pave the way for the next generation.

Iíve got a lot of respect for my opponent. I think sheís a great fighter and sheís going to come to fight and come to win. Iím excited. I want to be in a real fight. Thatís when youíre going to see the best me.
