Both fighters were face to face with the media and talked about the fight and what they expect this Saturday in their fight to dispute for the black and gold world title. 

Inoue will make his first title defense and said he is proud to have won the belt, he also stressed that he wants to retain it in front of his people and leave a good impression that will consolidate him as world champion. 

For his part, Ancajas said he is grateful to have a new opportunity of this kind and intends to take advantage of it.
