Apolinario Ready For Tyson Marquez Test on April 26th

By Carlos Costa

Filipino bantamweight John Mark "The Iceman" Apolinario is ready for the most electrifying fight of his life as he takes on popular Mexican, former Unified Flyweight World Champion Hernán "Tyson" Márquez in a high-voltage televised card on April  26 at the touristic Resort City of Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) in the northwest Mexican State of Sonora, near the border of Mexico with the U.S.    The clash was confirmed by Promociones Zanfer.

The 10-rounder  -  a classic of a hard-hitting slugger (Tyson) versus a fast slick-moving stylist (Apolinario)  -  will be at a contract weight limit of 117.5 lbs, a poundage in which the 24-year-old Apolinario (17-3-3, 4 KO's) has been fighting during the last couple of years.   Márquez, in contrast, has weighed-in at 112 lbs in his last two outings.

Even though the 25-year-old Tyson Márquez (36-4, 26 KO's) has gone through some issues about weight during his career, the interest of the Mexican in fighting Apolinario in the bantamweight division could mean that a fan-favorite as "Tyson"  is contemplating a move up in weight class.  

Super flyweight for Márquez does not sound bad. Whether or not Marquez will remain in the flyweights to shoot for a rematch against Filipino Brian Viloria or moves up to an upper division remains to be seen.

What is sure, though, is that his April 26 Rocky Point fight against John Mark Apolinario is at a weight limit of 117.5 lbs (53,300 kilos)

Whatever the weight, the Mexican former world champion better be in his best shape as the quiet soft spoken "Iceman" Apolinario   -   born in the Mindanao Province of Saraganai  -   will travel all the way to Mexico focused on scoring the most impressive win of his boxing career.      Will Apolinario be able to do it?

In fact, both boxers need a convincing victory, especially Marquez who comes from a dramatic, devastating knockout loss at the hands of his Mexican compatriot Giovani Segura (31-3-1, 27 KO's).

Segura stunningly overpowered Marquez in the last round of their volatile 12-rounder clash last November in the hometown of the Tyson - Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.    

Meanwhile, Apolinario's last battle was also a loss.   The Iceman suffered a 12-round unanimous decision defeat to the more skillful Japanese World Champion Koki Kameda (32-1, 17 KO's).  

It was a battle which Apolinario took the attacks that sent him down to the canvas in round 10 and then again in round 12.  Apolinario got up and kept on fighting till the last bell ando showed guts and heart in Tokyo.

These considerations reaffirm the point that both men need a convincing victory to rectify their fighting careers.

The fight card this is a production of Zanfer Boxing aired live on TV Azteca.
