Donaire/Concepcion Workout Quotes

Rafael Concepcion
“I know Las Vegas and I know there will be Latino fans in the arena rooting for me on Saturday night. There will be Mexican fans for sure on my side. I’ve trained hard and I will win. Panama fighters do not lose to Filipinos. We’re 4-0 in title fights.”

(Note: Concepcion’s chief trainer is Rigoberti Garibaldi of Panama. He used to work Ricardo Mayorga’s corner)

Nonito Donaire
“I’ve seen one video of Concepcion. He has a lot of heart which tells me he can be very dangerous inside the ring. I am going to rely on my speed and power to get through this one. Before I leave the 115 pound division, I want to fight Jorge Arce and Fernando Montiel. Those two are on my mind and it doesn’t matter who is first.”
