I figured out beforehand that he always fights the exact same way, so I knew to keep my distance and keep a fast pace. Saw he couldn’t counter so I kept pressure and now I’m 5-0. I’m 24 years old, and now I’m ready for a tougher opponent.
– Brian Ceballo
Even though I won tonight, I’m very disappointed because I wasn’t allowed the opportunity to demonstrate my fighting. My opponent kept holding me and wouldn’t let me fight him. All I want to do is fight. I have over 20 years’ experience fighting, half of that has been spent in the amateurs.
– Jaba Khositashvili
I am satisfied with my performance, but I feel I could’ve done a lot more to secure the win. I wish I would’ve thrown more punches and more combinations. He was really good at catching the shots and countering them, and I wish I would’ve had a lot more movement. We stuck to the plan which was to break the body down, and I felt I was able to do that.
This win is bittersweet because I won against a great name and record, but Massa (Roberto Ortiz) was my first ever sparring partner when I first turned pro, and now he’s a win on the next step of my career. During my first sparring session, he gave me a swollen lip, and today I knocked him out which is a great benchmark for me as to how I’m progressing as a fighter. I’m excited for the future.
-Vergil Ortiz, Jr.
I’m very thankful for this opportunity. It’s a great comeback to be on the Canelo vs. Golovkin card. I can’t wait because I am a step closer to becoming a world champion. When he hit the floor, I got very worried for him and I panicked, and when he regained consciousness and I prayed for him and I told him that I hope god blesses him, his family, and his career. I asked for him to forgive me, because this is the job that we chose and that I didn’t mean to hurt him.
I was very happy to win – I’m a happy middleweight. I felt great, I’m in superb shape. I always give you guys a great knock-out, a great fight, I’m looking forward to doing it again. Don’t mess with me – when O’Sullivan talked, I kept it in me. I bring it to the ring, I don’t disrespect my opponents, I don’t trash talk. You can’t compare me now with how I was with Billy Joel Saunders – Saunders is an excellent technician, but I’m physically 100% in shape now. Canelo and Golovkin are two excellent fighters, I’m looking forward to fighting them both, it’s a 50-50 fight. I fought Golovkin at his peak, maybe Golovkin will fight Lemieux at his peak.
This was my lesson to him, to be humble. I’m tired of these world champions smash talking just to promote their fights. I want to be able to teach my kids and the kids that follow me to be respectful and to never call out a fighter and keep it professional. I hope he learns to be humble, or be humbled. I want the winner of tonight’s fight.
Unfortunately, this is boxing. I got caught, and it just so happens it was a 179 light heavyweight who caught me. That was a big weight discrepancy at fight time.
This was part of my development. I was not as focused in my last fight. But this time I came more relaxed. I was looking for the knockout too much. But now you’ve seen the results of my work. With each fight you will see me getting better. I just want to show that I can get better and that I want to face the best, so I can show that I am the best.
He kept hitting me in the hip and a lot of low blows, which surprised me because the referee is experienced and didn’t give Munguia a warning. He’s tough, and it is what it is, and I hope to come back soon. I appreciate the support my Canadian fans have given me.
