Families lined up as early as 9:00am to get a chance to meet the Champ and get gifts for the kids. Champ Mikey Garcia arrived to the event with even more boxes of toys for the children, and the fans were excited to see him arrive! All the fighters got to spend a special moment with the kids as well as take photos and sign autographs. The first 200 children to arrive received an extra backpack of goodies donated by Pueblo Boxing. Hundreds of toys were donated by Spin Master Inc. along with more donated by fighters and fans who arrived at the event.

Overall this was an amazing event for the Southern California community families and also for our Boxing community to come together as one for the children. The event was supposed to go from 12pm-2pm but went on until about 4pm and the fighters humbly stayed until the last child got their gift. It was great to see the kids genuine innocence and smiling faces grateful to each fighter giving their time.

Cheap ass toys, and all of this for publicity.

Have any child older than 5 bring in their most recent report card.... Wonder how many of the adults pulled out a recent model cell phone to get their photo taken. If you're rocking an iPhone you aren't in need…
