This is what the fighters had to say:
WILLIAM "EL CAMARON" ZEPEDA, WBA CONTINENTAL AMERICAS
"I am always preparing, and I was ready for this fight. I
was lightly training already, at the ready to get the call.
When I did, I was overjoyed, as I was excited to fight in
the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Champions are made by taking
advantage of opportunities. When we defeated Joseph Diaz
last year, my team and I trained hard to take advantage of
the opportunity and it worked out perfectly for us."
"Getting the opportunity to headline as the red corner this
time around is a blessing, and is the result of years of
sacrifice, discipline, and hard work. We won't let the fans
down this Saturday, April 29!"
JAIME "JAIMITO" ARBOLEDA, LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER:
"I am very happy and very grateful to Golden Boy for the
opportunity as well as my promoter Sampson Boxing. And there
really isn't much more to say except that we are going to
give fans a big show this April 29."
"I come from a boxing family; my father, brothers, uncles
and many other loved ones have dedicated their time to the
sport, and I continue the family's legacy in boxing. We are
going to show this Saturday that the Arboleda's still have
much to give to this very difficult sport."
DIEGO DE LA HOYA, FEATHERWEIGHT CONTENDER:
"We prepared hard for this fight, I'm climbing my way back
to the top, and a win against Morales, Jr. helps me go up in
"In all honesty, I feel like while we are the co-main event,
this fight will steal the night. Both of us have something
to prove in the ring and won't want to lose. We are fighting
for our careers and for the bigger opportunities that await
for us on the other side."
VICTOR MORALES, JR., FEATHERWEIGHT FIGHTER:
"I'm super excited to be here. It's been a good camp, it's a
good card and I'm excited to be the co-main event. I asked
for this fight against Diego De La Hoya. I wanted to
challenge myself with the best in the division and this is
one step towards our goal to gain some more name
"This year I would really like to secure a junior title, and
hopefully be able to make the rankings to get a world title
shot in the longterm future. I finally feel like I'm getting
the exposure I feel like I deserve after 18-years in the
