On Thursday evening, WBO jr. featherweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr, and his wife Jackie went to the Orlando Magic game. They met up with the mascot and Dwight “Superman” Howard. When Wilfredo spotted him across the court, he yelled out, “That’s Superman!”

After the game, Wilfredo went to the gym and warmed up against 12-year-old Justin Roman, son of JJ at JJ’s Boxing Gym.

On Thursday morning, Wilfredo visited and spoke to the kids at the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center in Orlando. More photos…
