"This event is about giving back, about giving a helping hand," said Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. "This is about giving kids hope. When I was a kid, I used to love it when people would stop by the gym to give words of encouragement. It was inspiring. So if we can change and inspire and help families and kids out--then we've done our jobs as human beings."

"I want to thank our partners at California Municipal Finance Authority, Garden Grove Boxing and the entire staff at Golden Boy Promotions for making this event possible. As long as I can give back, I'll do it for the rest of my life. When you accomplish something in life and you have the opportunity to give back, then do it. It's my motivation and my way of saying thank you."
