CANO-THEOPHANE PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES
The opening bout on Saturday night's pay-per-view broadcast from Las Vegas begins at 9 PM Eastern time and features a ten-round welterweight showdown between Pablo Cesar Cano and Ashley Theophane. Here is what each boxer had to say at Thursday's press conference:
PABLO CESAR CANO:
“I don’t like to talk, like my opponent. I like to talk with my fists. Saturday night, I’m going to talk with my fists. We’re going to put Mexico in the No. 1 spot, from top to bottom.”
“I want to thank the whole Mayweather staff, Floyd and Leonard for giving me this big opportunity. Working with Mayweather Promotions has been amazing. I’m from London, so I’m representing the U.K. in this big event.
“I’ve got Cano here and he’s a very good fighter. But when you look at his record and you look at mine, who has he beaten? He hasn’t beaten anybody. I can guarantee that a lot of the boxing experts and writers here don’t know the guys he’s knocked out. It’s all good to have 20 knockouts and 26 wins, but if you’re knocking out nobodies then it doesn’t mean anything.”
