Saturday night on HBO is an intriguing doubleheader taking place from Mexico, with Alfredo Angulo taking on James Kirkland, and Peter Quillin taking on Craig McEwan. All four of the fighters involved got on a conference recently to discuss their upcoming fights and their training. Take a look at what everyone had to say right here.
First, I'd like to welcome everyone to today's call and wish everyone a Happy Halloween. As Bricelda said, we have Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin along with Craig McEwan on the line.

I'd like to turn the call over to the President of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar de la Hoya. Oscar.

This week is a good week to a be a fan of people punching each other in the face. There's more boxing on TV than any weekend in recent memory, and it's not going to stop. There's a good fight (or good fights) every weekend from now until the end of the year. This golden stretch kicks off with a bang, featuring no a whole heap of top rated fighters, and even...
Standard protocol in matchmaking dictates that promotional stablemates only fight one another when there's massive money involved and, usually, after a considerable build-up over the course of years.
