Here's what today's participants had to say at the media workout:
 
RYAN "THE FLASH" GARCIA, Current Junior NABF Super
Featherweight Champion:

"This is going to be an amazing event. This will be another step in my legacy, and I look forward to a world-changing fight. It doesn't matter how much experience Jayson Velez has. I'm going to fight the way I fight, whether he fought for a world title or not. I'm going to see how he fights, and I'll know what to do."
 
"I've noticed that he drops his hand a lot, so I'm going to feint to the body and catch him with my left hook. This fight is going to end in the fourth round. I may end it early, but I say it'll end in the fourth round. The knockout doesn't have to be with one punch because I also know how to end fights with a barrage and force the referee to end it. These two belts [NABF and NABO Super Featherweight Titles] will be on the line, and I know the the next fight will be for a world title."

SENIESA "SUPER BAD" ESTRADA, Super Flyweight Prospect:

"I train how I always do, no matter who my opponent is. Of course, it is helpful to know who I am fighting from the beginning, but either way I'm going to be very much prepared. It feels great to have young girls following me. When I grew up, I didn't have many girls in boxing to look up to. I looked up to Roy Jones, Jr. So I'm happy girls are looking up to me."

MARVIN CABRERA, Super Welterweight Prospect:

"I know this is an experienced opponent. We're going to take advantage of this opportunity to fight at StubHub, and we'll do what we love, which is fighting. Hopefully by the end of the year I can have my first 10-round fight."

RICHARD "KANSAS KID" ACEVEDO, Welterweight Prospect:
 
"I'm happy to be working with my new trainers, the Saucedo Brothers, at Westside Boxing Club. We're great friends outside the gym, but in the gym, they are my coaches and there is a lot of respect. I'm excited about fighting on a Golden Boy card. I'll be going in with everything, and if the knockout comes, it comes."

AZAT "CRAZY A" HOVHANNISYAN, WBC Continental Americas Super Bantamweight Champion:
 
"Ever since I was a kid in Armenia, I was trained to fight with an exciting style. I had over 200 amateur fights, and that gave me a lot of experience. I lost my professional debut, but I knew I was better than that."
 
"Rey Vargas is a dangerous opponent. He's very tall and long, but beside that I don't see anything else. I've sparred with a lot of tall opponents, so I know how they fight, and I'll be more than ready to beat him. A win over Vargas would not only mean a lot for me and my family, but also for my entire country."
