San Jose, CA, junior lightweight Andy Vences began his night by striding across the ring straight to his opponent's corner, standing inches from Cesar Valenzuela's face, staring long and hard into Valenzuela's dark eyes, mean-mugging, until the commission ordered Vences back to his corner for this breach of pre-fight protocol.
