Juan Manuel, Rafael Marquez Batter Opponents in Cancun

By Miguel Rivera

At Plaza de Toros in Cancun, Mexico, WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KOs) knocked out Likar Ramos (24-4, 18 KOs) in the first round of a junior welterweight bout. One solid right hand ended Ramos and put him away. The fight was a tune-up to see how Marquez reacts to a higher weight for his November 12 trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao, which takes place at a catch-weight of 144-pounds.

In the co-feature, former two division champion Rafael Marquez (40-6, 36 KOs) broke down Eduardo Becerril (12-8-2, 4 KOs) in five rounds, as he was unable to come out for round six. Marquez is now in line to fight WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka in a tentative October battle in Las Vegas.
