Pacquiao: “I feel great. My team has full confidence in my capabilities even at 42 years old and they note that I still have what it takes to face elite calibre opponents.

“Although the recuperation period of a 42-year-old may not be the same as a 25-year-old fighter, I still love what I am doing. I’m enjoying training and I’m learning more about myself everyday.”

Ugas: “I have a tremendous amount of respect for Pacquiao, but I am coming to win this fight.

“I’ve been in camp working hard with my coach Ismael Salas and I know together we will come up with a masterful game plan to combat anything Manny will bring to the ring.”
