Jaime Munguia (34-0, 27 KOs) and Gary O’Sullivan (30-3, 21 KOs) hosted their final press conference on Thursday at The Alamodome ahead of their 12-round fight for the WBO International Middleweight Title.

The event will take place Saturday, Jan. 11 at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas and will be streamed live on DAZN.

Below is what the participants had to say at the press conference:

JAIME MUNGUIA, Middleweight Contender:

“Thank you all for joining us. Thank you, Golden Boy, Zanfer, DAZN and my entire team. I want to tell you all I’m happy and motivated and at this new division. This is something new for me and my team. It is a great division with a lot of great fighters like Gary O’Sullivan. I’m excited for that’s because at 160 we will have big challenges, we will have big fights and we will deliver great fights to all the people.”

“I want to tell all that we had a great preparation. We prep at 100% keeping in mind that we want to give a great fight and a great show. And I want to tell you all to join us on this great fight.”

“God willing after this, we will look for world titles at 160 pounds for the people that follow me. Thank you.”

GARY “SPIKE” O’SULLIVAN, Middleweight Contender:

“Thank you everyone at the Alamodome stadium. It is fantastic to be here again, I want to take thank Golden Boy, Murphy’s Boxing, Zanfer Boxing, Team Munguia, and everyone for being here today.”

“I look forward to coming here Saturday night. I’m not under no illusion that Jaime is a great fighter, but he should be under no illusion that I’ve prepared really hard for this fight. I made a lot of sacrifices. I recently bought my first home for my family, and I was looking forward to spending Christmas with my family at my new home, but I made a lot of sacrifices and I remained in training camp for the holidays.”

“Is nothing personal, I really like Jaime, he is a very good guy, very pleasant guy. I wish him good health and good luck in his life, but on Saturday night I’m coming for war, I’m coming to win. And I look forward to putting a great show.”

ERIK “EL TERRIBLE” MORALES, Hall of Famer and Trainer of Jaime Munguia:

“I’m convinced that Jaime Munguia at 160 pounds will be a great fighter. He has come to this fight after a great training with a lot of strength and speed. No doubt it would a good fight and I’m sure that Jaime has the energy and the strength to fight at the highest levels in a style that is pleasing to the fans because he has the talent and the heart. Jaime has grown a lot as a boxer. It’s going to be a big fight and I want to invite everyone to be part of this big night of boxing.”

PASCHAL “PACKY” COLLINS, Trainer of Gary O’Sullivan:

“Hello everybody here in San Antonio. I want to thank Golden Boy, Oscar De La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins, Eric Gomez, DAZN, and the people from San Antonio for giving us the opportunity to be part of this event.”

“I’ve been managing Spike throughout his whole career and I know of what he’s capable of doing. This is the one fight we’ve been looking for; against Jaime Munguia. Spike literally moved to middleweight to try to get this fight.”

“No disrespect to Munguia. He’s a great fighter as many Mexican fighters. Munguia has had his world title for a couple of defenses now and Spike still doesn’t have that kind of title, that’s something that he has been training his whole life for. Spike is a hungry fighter, he is a hard-hitting fighter. Jaime is a young guy, he makes mistakes as a young fighter and we are going to capitalize on that. When the opportunity arrives, he will land his shots and we will find out then how great of a fighter Jaime is. I believe is Spike’s destiny to win Saturday night.”
