"It's going to be party time this Saturday from StubHub Center. There will be a lineup of champions, including Mikey Garcia and many more, at the Fan Fest on Saturday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. Live music, food trucks and autograph signings for all fans, so make sure you show up early.
 
"This is a great showcase for the sport of boxing and for these great fighters up here. This action will be seen across the world and we're thankful to have the chance to lift up these great fighters.

"This is a 12-fight card that is going to be a boxing festival at StubHub Center. Besides the three TV fights we have two rising Olympians in Eimantas Stanionis and Mexico's Misael Rodriguez, the first Mexican Olympian to bring a medal home in 16 years.
 
"Eddie Ramirez is rising in the sport and he will face a very familiar name in boxing in Antonio DeMarco. DeMarco knows that this is his chance to prove that he still has a lot left, but Ramirez will try to add another name to his contender resume.

"Andres Gutierrez has an opportunity to go in against a true legend of the sport in Abner Mares. You don't always get a second chance in this sport so I know that Gutierrez is going to be prepared. This is a fight that you don't want to miss.
 
"Abner is a true student of the sport and he's had a lot of great trainers in his life. We have seen what happened with how Abner reinvented himself by working with Robert Garcia. Some people had written him off, but he proved that he is still among the elite.
 
"The main event is another fight that will bring non-stop action. Chris Avalos knows that this is his moment, maybe his last chance, to capture a world title. These are the kind of fights that you truly can't underestimate their opponents, because they are going to come ready to take it from you.
 
"Leo Santa Cruz is a true champion of this sport and truly on of its' nicest competitors. He beings non-stop action every time he fights and I know that with this chance to perform on FOX and FOX Deportes, he will be at his best."
