Photos/Quotes: Concepcion vs Marquez Final Presser

PANAMA - In a lively press conference, Luis "Nica" Conception and Mexican puncher Hernan "Tyson" Marquez, who clash on Saturday, met face to face. "Tyson" (29-2-0, 22 KOs), 22 years of age, will challenge the Concepcion (22-1, 17KOs), 26-years-old, for the WBA flyweight title. Concepcion has already down three Mexicans and wants to make Marquez number four. The fight will be held at the 14,000 seat Roberto Duran Arena.

"I came to this great country as a challenger for the title of champion. I recognize the quality of Concepcion, but this time I prepared myself physically and mentally for a big fight and to take the title to Mexico. I'll fight like a true Mexican with a lot of heart and balls. He does not intimidate me with his victories against my countrymen," Marquez said.

"I never like to do a lot of talking about my opponents. I just hope to give a great fight, but what I can promise you is that I will win and the title will stay in Panama and Marquez will return to Mexico with empty hands," said Concepcion.

Luis Pabón will be the referee, while the judges are Ted Gimzo and Steve Weisfield of the United States and Colombian Manuel Rodríguez.
