Cole Crumpler, 18-YEAR-OLD LYNCHBURG BOXER (7-0, 5 KO), said "Definitely a big stepping stone, probably one of the best guys I've fought. You know performing well in this fight is a big key to what I would get next. So definitely need to perform well."

Scott Sigmon, 28-10-1 RECORD (FIGHTS DAVID MARKER SATURDAY), said "I know that he's in the best shape of his career, I know he's coming to win.
