Sonny Bill Williams said:
"It’s difficult for different reasons. All the hard training is done, but now it’s just about staying cool, calm, and collected and getting ready to put on a great performance."
Mark Hunt said:
"It's been 30 years of combat. To be honest, I'm 48-years-old – I'm looking forward to this – It'll be my last match. It's been an amazing journey, to be honest, around the globe in different genres. After this fight, it'll be a different battle, but I really appreciate the great man David over here and his team and everyone else who has helped be a part of this. I'm looking forward to tomorrow night, lacing up the gloves, any kind of gloves for the last time. I appreciate that, Khoder."
