Juan Manuel Marquez To Face Sergey Fedchenko, 4/14

By Salvador Rodriguez

As BoxingScene.com reported on Wednesday, a new opponent was being pursued for Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39 KOs), after Argentine boxer Cesar Cuenca (42-0, 1KO) fell out. The new opponent for Marquez is Ukrainian Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs). Marquez's trainer, Nacho Beristain, confirmed the information to BoxingScene. The fight takes place for the vacant WBO interim-140-pound title on April 14th at the new arena in Mexico City.

"In the end we are left with Fedchenko, who is more of a come forward fighter, and likes to mix it up a lot more [than Cuenca]," said Beristain after analyzing some Fedchenko videos.

Fedchenko European champion of the World Boxing Organization. He last fought on February 18 in Germany, beating Laszlo Fasekas over eight rounds. His last defeat came in September 2009 and since then he accumulated seven wins, two of them by knockout.

Nacho indicated that Marquez's camp will have to change, regarding the sparring partners and the fight strategy, but he feels confident there is enough time to make the necessary adjustments. Marquez will get help from ‘Joya’ Herrera, Gilberto González, Juan Montiel, Alejandro Barrera and José Pinzón.
