O’Shaquie Foster vs. Rocky Hernandez
Final Press Conference Quotes
This is a classic fight for the most historic of the belts,
the WBC, and one steeped in the history of Mexican boxing.
You have the American slickster, the champion O’Shaquie
Foster against Eduardo ‘Rocky’ Hernandez, one of the most
brutal and hard-hitting Super-Featherweights I’ve ever seen.
It’s a fantastic 50-50 match-up and it’s supported by some
great action on the undercard.
O’Shaquie Foster - defends WBC World Super-Featherweight
title against Eduardo 'Rocky' Hernandez
I’m feel right at home. I’ve been embraced by the fans,
there’s been much love, and I am used to being in this
position so it’s easy and cool for me.
I don’t know what they are looking at, but if you look at my
fights, I have presented a different challenge to anybody in
front of me. I might fight you southpaw the whole fight, I
might fight you orthodox the whole fight. But from round one
to 12, I can put you down on the canvas, I’ve shown that in
several fights. All the talking is done. They say they have
been calling for this fight, it kind of sounds crazy because
we could have fought in the summertime, he fought Hector
Garcia because he wanted a tune-up fight instead of coming
for the World title. I hadn’t fought for a year when I went
into the World title fight with Vargas, no excuses. They
have nothing but excuses and those that know the background
know that they have been running from me.
I plan on trying to unify and try to become undisputed. We
aren’t looking past Rocky but I feel like this is the
beginning to the world seeing what I have to give, and
you’ll start to see it on Saturday.
Rocky Hernandez - challenges O'Shaquie Foster for the
WBC World Super-Featherweight title
On Saturday you are going to see a new World champion, and
that’s me. I don’t know why he is saying I was scared to
fight him; I’m not scared of anyone, and it is his fault
that the fight went to purse bids. I’m bringing the war on
Saturday, and I hope he is ready for it because I am taking
that title home and will show exactly who Eduardo ‘Rocky’
They are right in one thing, that this fight does not go the
distance, but it will be from an Eduardo Hernandez KO. I am
going to show why I deserve to be here on Saturday night.
I’ve wanted this from the very first day I took up boxing.
I’ve not cared about who I faced, I have complete hunger and
ambition to get my hand raised on Saturday and what better
way to do it than have my family alongside me to see me take
that belt home.
Eduardo Nunez - takes on Oscar Escandon over ten rounds
It’s great to be here once again on a big Matchroom show.
We’ll be going out there looking for the knockout, but we
are prepared for whatever rounds may come. It’s also great
to have this opportunity to come to Cancun and fight, and in
terms of opponents being afraid to fight me, we have
complete faith that we will get the opportunities and get a
World title fight in 2024.
It would be lovely for Rocky to get his hand raised and win
the World title, and I would love in the future to fight for
the WBC belt, hopefully I can face the winner in the future,
and I have faith that I will.
Oscar Escandon - takes on Eduardo Nunez over ten rounds
Thank you for the opportunity, I know Nunez is a great
fighter, strong, very good, but I have my own abilities and
capacities, and I have fought for World titles. I’m very
well prepared and ready to take this victory home with me.
Justis Huni - takes on Andrew Tabiti for the WBA
International Heavyweight title
It’s massive for my career going forward and I’m excited to
be a part of this card. I’m grateful for the opportunity to
be fighting in front of new eyes and I am ready to go on
I’m here to prove why I belong at the top with the other
name, and this is my time to shine, and what better platform
to do it on as the co-main event of a World title fight, and
you better believe I’m going to bring my best.
We have both got good boxing IQ’s and I think it’s going to
be a chess match at the start. But I believe I have the
goods to go all the way and get the win.
