Freddie Roach, after winning a record-seventh BWAA Eddie Futch Award for trainer of the year: "Words cannot express how much winning an award with Eddie Futch's name on it means to me. I'd like to thank the BWAA for this honor. My name may be on the plaque, but I am just a representative of the collective hard work and dedication from the most talented and hardest-working fighters and assistant trainers in the world. It is a privilege to work with them."
"I’m looking for a big year again in 2015. I’m going to continue taking the biggest and best fights out there. I don’t want to take no step down. I want to prove I’m the best fighter in and around my division, and one of the best in any division. To be great, you got to set your sights on the Pacquiaos and the Mayweathers. Those are the kind of guys I want to fight, and beat.” - @tbudcrawford, after being named the BWAA's 2014 Fighter of the Year.
