Adrien "The Problem" Broner, WBO junior lightweight champion:
"July 21 is just another day in the ring for me. I'll come in laughing and dancing. I like to have fun with it. He's coming to my hometown and I'm excited... I don't know him and I don't want to know him. I'm in the hurt business and I'm gonna handle Escobedo... I've been in shape since 1989. When I was born and the doctor smacked me, I smacked him back.
"I'm going to take full advantage of this opportunity. I'm hungry and I've been hungry. People say that he [Broner] has talent, power and speed. I've got talent. I've got speed and I've got power too. I'm gonna shock the world. I guarantee it."
