Cancun, Q. Roo - The opponents for Juan Manuel and Rafael Marquez, Likar Ramos and Eusebio Osejo, respectively, came to Cancun with a firm conviction to spoil the celebration of the Marquez brothers on Saturday in the Plaza de Toros in this land of paradise in the Mexican Caribbean.
Upon arrival at the venue of the fight, the Colombian Likar Ramos said the two and a half months of preparation will be his main strength to surprise the Juan Manuel from the very first round.
"Juan Manuel better be careful because I'm coming with everything. I prepared well for this commitment. We have a great responsibility to fight a great fighter and we are ready to present a great fight and to secure the win," said the South American, who has 24 wins, including 18 by knockout, and only three defeats.
The native of Barranquilla, Colombia, comes to this match with three wins in a row, and said that he is not afraid to fight as a visitor.
For his part, Nicaraguan Osejo Eusebio, who in his most recent ring appearances defeated Juan Antonio 'Mozo' Rodriguez on points, hopes to add another victory to his resume by defeating former two division champion Rafaal Marquez in the co-feature.
"We know the quality and experience that Marquez has. He is someone who captured two world titles in his career, but we are here to face him with great courage and to impose our youth and desire to succeed."
Both fighters came in great condition and bring a winning mentality.
Saturday's card in Cancun will feature the next ring appearance of Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez, who defends his WBA flyweight title against Mexico's Omar Salado.
The evening will be promoted by Zanfer boxing and broadcast by TV Azteca.
