Photo: Marroquin Badly Injures Ankle During Diaz Loss

Featherweight contender Roberto Marroquin (23-3, 16KOs) tore ligaments around his right ankle in the first round of last Friday's shocking ten round split decision loss to Daniel Diaz (20-5) at the WinStar Casino in Oklahoma. Marroquin injured the ankle after suffering two knockdowns in the first. He also hurt his left hand along the way, but the ankle made him a stationary target for Diaz.

According to Marroquin's team, the boxer will likely be out for several months to fully recover from the ankle injury.
