Maurice Hooker

“This fight means everything for me. I hope Jose is ready. I will be the champion. I don’t want to bet on eating Whataburger. Let’s bet on breakfast in the morning with my belts. I’m pumped about this fight being home in Dallas. Jose is good fighter and he’s come ready to fight. I’m ready to go one round, I’m ready to go two rounds, I’m ready to go 12. But the way Jose fights, he will run into my right hand.”

Jose Ramirez

“I am looking forward to showing my skills to the people of Texas. Going to new places is part of being a superstar and that’s what I want to become. In order to make a unification fight, I had to come to Maurice’s backyard but I am looking forward to using this opportunity. I want to make you all proud. My team knows I am ready, I know I am ready.”

 

Eddie Hearn, Matchroom Managing Director

 

“We have had an amazing first eight or nine months with DAZN. All of these great fighters have been active, most especially Tevin Farmer who continues to get in the ring to defend his belt and this weekend has a tough mandatory fight in front of him.

 

“I am desperate to see Maurice Hooker win this fight on Saturday night. He is a great man. But overall, this is why we called this show ‘All or Nothing’ because each guy comes in with a belt and will leave with both titles. It’s going to be a tremendous fight and I cannot wait for this.”

Tevin Farmer

“I had an amazing training camp. I know a lot of fighters say this but this was really my best camp. No cheating. Eight weeks. Six days a week, three times a day. I think this will be my best performance ever. As you can see, I am skinny as hell right now but I am not dry. I feel great. I feel motivated again, I want to take this thing to a new level. Saturday on DAZN, you will see me take it to that new level. I want Gervonta Davis, I want JoJo Diaz. I want unifications. But God willing, you will see on Saturday night and then we will be there for a big fight. JoJo Diaz, you next!”

Guilluame Frenois

“Since my draw against Jono Carroll last year, I have been waiting to get this shot. I am looking forward to Saturday night and bringing the belt back to France.”

Tremaine Williams

I finally get to showcase who I really am. Come Saturday night I’ll show what I can do.”

Austin “Ammo” Williams

“Without you guys I wouldn’t be myself without the support that Eddie has given me I wouldn’t be here. I constantly get great opportunities to showcase my skills. I’m super dedicated to this sport, I do the work on it everyday day. It really is a blessing for me. I’m here to change the world and this is my way to do it. Eddie and my team is helping me do that. I love everybody, thank you for your time.”
