Paulie Malignaggi

 

“The whole motivation was not just to defend a world title but to put on a show for Brooklyn.

 

“I’m here is to win and look spectacular and really make a statement.

 

“I expect Brooklyn to be in the house, that’s for sure.”

 

Danny Jacobs

“To have gone through what I’ve gone through in the past year and a half (his battle with cancer and paralysis caused by a large tumor on his spine), to have this opportunity and attention, to have people say I appreciate you, it’s an amazing feeling.

 

“To have this amazing Barclays’ card on October 20, it’s going to be historical.

 

“The doctors told me I would never be able to box again.  It was the crazy part of me that wanted to do what the doctors told me I couldn’t do.”
