“My kids and Shabranskyy’s kids have not played in the park together since our fight (their kids actually played together at the park 5 days prior to Kovalev’s November 25 KO win over Shabranskyy).”

Igor Mikhalkin
“I trained very good and I feel very good. I know Kovalev and he will try the same style he always does – he will come and try to knock me out and I am prepared for that.”

“I’m very excited to fight at Madison Square Garden; it is like a dream come true and I promise to give the fans a good fight because I know there are many Russians that live in the area and many of them will be coming to the fight.”

Dmitry Bivol – WBA Light Heavyweight World Champion

“I know this is a big fight and I’m excited to get to fight a guy like Barrera. I’m glad I’m in a big fight because I trained very hard. I train like every fight is my last fight because every fight is the most important fight. On Saturday night, the fans will get to see what I am on all about.”

“I know Barrera is very strong and is a tough fighter. I had very good sparring partners to help me prepare for Barrera and that makes me believe that I will be the winner and stay champion.”

“After this, I want to fight the best fighters and I want to fight other champions so I can get more belts – whether that will be Kovalev or Stevenson. After this fight I will get with my team and we will decide who to fight next but I always want to fight the best but now I am only thinking about Barrera.”
