Here is what Garcia and his father and trainer, Angel had to say Wednesday:
 
DANNY GARCIA
 
On Keith Thurman being ringside on the Spike announcing crew...
"He will just get an up close and personal look at what will happen to him in March. I hope he's paying attention.
 
"I am excited to give the Philly fans a great fight.  This is an opportunity to give back and that is most important to me. I've been training really hard and I'm going to give 100 percent for my city.
 
"I am just going in the ring and be myself.  Seek and destroy. I am taking this one round at a time. I'm looking to be smart and break him down. When the opportunity comes, I'm taking it and putting on a show.
 
"I am not looking past this fight.  I have tunnel vision and have never looked past anyone.  I know he is coming to win, but I am ready mentally and physically to get the job done.
 
"This is going to be a great night. It's an exciting card from top to bottom. Young local fighters getting a chance to show their skills is great for the sport and great for Philadelphia."
 
ANGEL GARCIA, Danny's Father & Trainer
 
"Thurman may be on the outside looking in on Saturday, but he's going to see what he has in store for him in March.
 
"Billy Briscoe (Vargas' trainer) is another Philly guy like me and I know he's going to try his best. But they're fighting the champ and they know they have their hands full. He may think he knows our game plan but he really doesn't.
 
"I'm excited for Danny to be fighting at home. It's a great opportunity to give back. I'm expecting Danny to look great in the ring and get the win."

You can say he'll be looking at his future but Vargas and Thurman are two different fighters on two different levels.
