Monday, Vazquez and Mares delighted fans by signing autographs, posing for pictures, taking orders and serving food.
Said Vazquez: “I love doing this kind of thing, being out in the public and meeting fans. I never get tired of it. Having people recognize me is a dream come true. They are very important to my life and my career. Making other people happy, seeing a smile on their faces and the look in their eyes makes me even happier.

“As for the fight, I am 100 percent physically and mentally prepared.”

Offered Mares: ”It’s always exciting for me to be around people in the public in a great atmosphere like this. I feed off their energy and it gives me a lot of motivation. The fans mean everything to me and I will always be willing to give back to them.

“Fighting for a World Title is what it’s all about. Saturday is going to be a great night and a real treat for the fans. Our fight is truly a backyard brawl. I live in Norwalk, Yonnhy lives in Santa Fe Springs, and they are just a few miles apart. It doesn’t get better than this.”
