Here is what the participants had to say Tuesday:
 
DANNY GARCIA
 
"It feels great to be fighting at home. This is what Philadelphia needed. We're a fight town. I feel like people don't know that all over the world. We have a great history and a lot of world champions from here, and they've been kind of been overshadowed. It's an honor to be able to bring a fight back to these fans.
 
"It's very important to give back. I'm so happy to have the opportunity. With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner I'm sure we'll be making a big impact. There are a lot of families in Philadelphia who really need it and I'm glad I can help.

"I'm very lucky to be where I am. It takes a lot of hard work, but you also need the right timing. My dad and I had a vision. We never gave up on that vision. We've been through so much in life, we didn't want to stop till we reached our goals.
 
"The city of Philadelphia needs a champion. They need someone to give them a hometown show. There's a lot of excitement with the Eagles and Sixers right now, and I'm going to give them another thing to cheer for.

"It's a very short trip for me to the arena so I'm happy about that. I feel comfortable. I'm in my own backyard. We're planning to make sure Vargas is very uncomfortable.

"I love seeing these young kids from Philadelphia on the card. I love giving them an opportunity to get fights in front of their hometown fans too. There are a lot of doors opening up for young fighters from Philadelphia and I love that I can be a part of it.

"I know Billy Briscoe (Vargas' trainer) will have some tricks. We're very familiar with each other and I know what kind of trainer he is. He's never prepared to face someone like me.

"I've watched the tape on Vargas. He's a gritty fighter. He's definitely a tough guy who won't give up. I have to be ready. I'm going to have to be prepared. I feel ready to go.

"I had to grow into 140-pounds before I started knocking people out. This will be my third fight at welterweight and I think I'm going to feel as good as I have in my career. That's why we're ready to take on the best."
