FINAL QUOTES:

CONWELL:

You will see tomorrow night what I can bring. Im not overlooking Ashkeyev, Im looking to prove ourselves [my team]. Tomorrow will be a great show. We all want the belts!

ASHKEYEV:

I consider this fight as a home team advantage. California is my second home. You guys will also see that I can box, apply pressure, and be versatile.

MRDJENOVICH:

Im excited for this fight. I saw a fighter [Torres] who is ready, and I respect that. I know my trainer [Milan] isnt here, but all these firsts in this fight are part of this. I fought depression, and I will use my experience to my advantage to conquer that feeling. My number of knockouts is more than the fights she has fought. Its going to be a war.

TORRES:

Last time, I took a bigger leap to challenge the titles that was a mistake. But now I have more experience and I can use that in the ring. I know [Mrdjenovich] has more experience. This is why preparation is important we studied her in order to perform well.

BAEZ:

This is my U.S. Debut. Im very happy about this. Especially because its in LA Theres a lot of boxing here. I saw that my opponent was very confident, but my team has as much confidence as he does.

ABGARYAN:

I love to play chess and tomorrow, I will show you guys how I play chess very fast. Even though Im small, thats nothing new to me. I will fight and be strong for my family and friends, fans here in the U.S. and for Armenia!

SHAW:

This will be my first fight in 378 days. Im itching to get in the ring. Its been a while, but we are here now. Training with top fighters like [Andy] Ruiz and [Deontay] Wilder helped me feel what it is like to be a Champion and be a Champion myself doing my own thing. If a knockout presents itself, Im will definitely take it.

PINCHUK:

All I know is Im prepared, and you guys will see a good fight. Im not even worried about the size, thats actually [Shaws] only advantage. Im smarter and a better boxer. I cant wait to introduce myself to this new audience. They will see a Russian Tyson Fury.
