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.

I've hurt my ankle worse than that, and it was a ***** to even try to put weight on it. Amazing the toughness guys like Marroquin and Bradley exhibit in the ring, let alone risking your life every fight.
