As fight night nears, the fighters competing on Saturday’s Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on NBC and NBCSN cards held a final press conference Thursday in San Antonio before their respective showdowns at the AT&T Center. The main event pits undefeated star Omar “Panterita” Figueroa takes on former world champion Antonio DeMarco. As expected, the fight between heavyweights Charles Martin and Dominic Breazeale is off after Martin pulled out to fight Czar Glazkov for the vacant IBF title. Televised coverage begins with heavyweights Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola and Travis “My Time” Kauffman, who had a heated exchange when they faced-off Thursday.

Chris Arreola: “I’ve made all of my opportunities and earned them. I’ve made every fight worth my while. Nothing was given to me. Kauffman and I have sparred many times. For him it’s been a paid vacation. I’ve been lazy sometimes and Kauffman knows that. He didn’t have to really work against me. Let’s look at who Kauffman has fought, he’s fought a bunch of nobodies. He’s taken care of those guys, but I wouldn’t even use them for sparring

“I was terrible my last two fights. None of those fights woke me up. I didn’t train hard enough and I blame myself. It showed in my performance. The fact that Kauffman wanted to fight me makes sense. He thinks I’m done and that I party too much. After this Saturday, I’m going to party after I beat him down. This is not a cakewalk, I trained so hard because I know Kauffman is a great fighter. He is not going to make a name with me. I’m the Grinch, I’m going to steal his Christmas.”

Travis Kauffman: “I want to thank everyone for this opportunity. Chris and I go way back. At least 10 years. We were in camp with Hasim Rahman and we are personal friends, but come Saturday night it’s business, there are no friends. Chris has had many opportunities and knocked at the door. But he hasn’t taken advantage of it. This is a huge opportunity and I’m going to take advantage.

“This isn’t an easy test. Chris will not quit. I have to do what no one else has done, and make him quit. We’ve sparred 200 plus rounds, but sparring and fighting are two different things. I’m a different fighter then when we sparred. There are no friends on Saturday. I’m taking care of business. This is my time. I want everyone to watch me get known in this business.”

Also in attendance and participating on the NBCSN portion of the telecast were former world champion “Vicious” Victor Ortiz, San Antonio-prospect Mario Barrios and Omar Figueroa’s brother Brandon Figueroa.

On Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, WBA middleweight title-holder Danny Jacobs destroyed and knocked out Peter Quillin in the first round. Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) hurt Quillin almost immediately with a flush right. Quillin backed into the ropes where the two Brooklynites exchanged hard shots. It was Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KOs) who came out of it worse,and two other Jacobs rights had him wobbling across the ring. Referee Harvey Dock took a quick look at the wide-eyed stare of Quillin and called the fight off with the fighter still standing. Quillin didn’t protest the stoppage, either, although some in attendance found it to be a premature call.

Amir Khan Talking Big But No Fights Set!

HOT NEWS!
AmirKhan3Given a choice, Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) says he would prefer to step in the ring opposite either Manny Pacquiao (whom he knows well from their time training together) or Kell Brook (a fellow Brit who currently holds the IBF 147-pound title). “I’d love to take them both on,” Khan says. “Manny is a good friend of mine and always will be. We have trained together for years, so we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses inside out. As for Kell, that would be an incredible battle of Britain. He is from Yorkshire, I’m from Lancashire. It’s a matchup that would sell out any football stadium in the country.”
