Zab Judah:  “It’s been a little bit of a long road for me on my comeback.  I want to give a shout out to Derek Stevens and the D Las Vegas for putting on this beautiful event March 12.  You won’t want to miss this fight!  I also want to thank CBS Sports Network, Team Judah and my manager, who is my brother, Bill Halkias.  He’s got us back to where we should be.  And I want to thank the City of Las Vegas.”

Josh Torres:  “To be on the first series show is a dream come true.  I’m fighting a legend, Zab ‘Super’ Judah.  But I’m also fighting for New Mexico boxers.  I want to inspire youth, that’s what it’s all about.  Never give up, dreams do come true.”

Chuy Gutierrez:  “I’d like to thank the D Las Vegas for having me on this CBS Sports Network show.  Here we go again, let’s get it on!”

Leon Spinks III:  “This is a very, very, very big event for me.  I’m grateful and honored to be part of the first ‘Knockout Night at the D’ event on CBS Sports Network.  My family will be here.  My grandfather, Pops, is Leon Spinks.  It’s going down at the D.”
