"This fight is in Atlantic City. I'm undefeated in Atlantic City. This is like a hometown fight for me. I'm willing to go through whatever it takes to be victorious.

Gabriel Rosado, Top Middleweight Contender

"Never did I think I'd have the opportunity to fight on the same card as Bernard. I thought by the time I had the opportunity he'd be gone, but he's still here kicking ass. Its crazy how that played out and I'm just blessed to have been around Bernard in so many training camps and to learn old school boxing, which is a lost art now.

"I had a shot at the world title already and I fell short. I didn't put my head down when I lost that fight. I knew I belonged. I made the best of this opportunity. Mentally this is the most prepared I've ever been for a fight.

"This fight is in Atlantic City. I'm undefeated in Atlantic City. This is like a hometown fight for me. I'm willing to go through whatever it takes to be victorious. I'm ready to go through hell."
