Hernan Marquez: I'm Ready To Take Concepcion's Belt

By Rafael Soto

Los Mochis - The Sonoran Hernan "Tyson" Marquez responded well to the demanding pace that was demanded in training for the last six weeks. "Tyson" Marquez (29-2-0, 22 KOs) will look for the absolute world flyweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA) on Saturday April 2 in Panama, home of the champion Luis "El Nica" Concepcion (22-1-0, 17 KOs), who in turn seeks to make the fourth defense of his title.

Tyson, 22 years old, ends his camp on Thursday with a 12 round session, and early on Friday he travels with his team, led by Don Manuel Montiel and his sons Edward and Manuel Jr., to Panama to have seven days to acclimatize and adjust to the time change and also to get fully ready for the weigh-in on April 1 where he shouldn't have any problems making pounds.

"Tyson is in excellent condition, more complete with his boxing, smarter and stronger, and ready to bring the world championship back to Mexico," said Don Manuel Montiel.

In addition to his conditioning and fitness work, "Tyson," a native of Empalme, Sonora, had a nutritionist available for his daily diet, so he plans to arrive at the scale at the exact weight and he'll well fed, with the minimum percentage of body fat and a significant amount of physical strength for his division.

"I feel very strong and very motivated to face Concepcion, and go home as the champion. I'm willing to do anything that night because no matter what I will be crowned champion because I prepared hard and with great dedication," said Marquez. "I will not back up an inch. I'll only come forward and I'll stand and fight."

"Tyson" challenged for the WBA world title in July of last year against Filipino Nonito Donaire and it was a competitive fight but he succumbed to the champion in 8 rounds.
