Cuenca Confident: I Know I'll Beat Juan Manuel Marquez

By Rafael Soto

Argentine boxer Cesar Rene Cuenca has spent years waiting for a world title shot. On April 14th in Mexico City, he will face one of the greatest Mexican fighters of all time, Juan Manuel Marquez, for the interim-WBO junior welterweight title. Cuenca (42-0, 1 KO) knows Marquez is a very experienced fighter, and he knows a lot of other fights are at stake for the Mexican icon - but Cuenca has no doubts about his ability to defeat Marquez.

"I am very happy, because I'm fulfilling my dream of fighting for the world title. I've always wanted to at least try, but now I am going to do it, and I'm going to win. We are preparing very well for Marquez. I know that he has a lot of experience, but I have experience as well. I am convinced that I will win," Cuenca told Diario Abajo del Ring.

potential knock out of the year... imagine a guy with 1 KO win in 40+ fights knocked out a dude like marquez senseless... it will be brutal and it won't be even funny...
