Photos: Tyson Marquez, David Sanchez Sonora Presser

By Rafael Soto

Hermosillo has become in recent years a capital for high impact boxing - not only nationally, but internationally. And Sonora has been a major seed for boxing and has given great satisfaction to the Mexican fans. With this background, Zanfer Promotions is staging two big functions in association with the Sonoran capital.

On February 23, David "Tornado" Sanchez (22-2-1, 18KOs) would have the opportunity to become the first world champion of Hermosillo, when he goes for the interim-super bantamweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA). It is not known whether he will face the current owner, Venezuelan Liborio Solis, who has to decide whether he will face the full champion Kohei Kono of Japan - and that would leave the belt vacant. The situation with the WBA will be ironed out next week.

And on March 23, former champion Hernan "Tyson" Marquez will reappear, looking for a new opportunity to become world champion and above all, looking for a rematch against Brian Viloria. Marquez (34-3, 26 KOs) will fight an opponent to be determined in the new stadium that hosts the 2013 Baseball Caribbean Series.

Like I said before, Tyson fighting a nobody on TV AZTECA. These r the only fighters he can beat. He comes to the U.S. and get beat up. Zorrita, Montiel, Rubio, keep fighting in these palenques for these B.S. Latin…

Damn, Tyson looks 130+ in that picture. Does he have any history of weight issues?

[QUOTE=LaBéstia;12919714]Tyson looks fat... I think he's done[/QUOTE] Of course he's fat. We Mexicans tend to eat a lot in these holidays. That just shows you what kind of fighter he is.
