Hermosillo, Son - At the the Bicentennial Square, fans came out to greet the main event fighters of Saturday's big boxing evening, which is called - "Mexico vs Philippines" - presented by Zanfer at the Multipurpose Center (CMU) in Hermosillo, and it will be televised on TV Azteca nationally and internationally by Fox Sports. World Boxing Association (WBA) flyweight champion Hernan "Tyson" Marquez (30-2-0, 23 KOs) will defend the title against dangerous Filipino Edrin Dapudong (22-3-0, 13 KOs).
A lot of fans lined up early and in the end it was worth the wait, with many grabbing autographs and pictures with champion, "Tyson" Marquez, and his solid challenger, "Stinger" Daupudong.
"It motivates me much closer to my people here in Hermosillo. I'm home and gladly answered all of the people who came for a photo or autograph. We are eager for Saturday to climb into the ring and feel the public support to successfully defend my first world championship," Marquez said after finishing the fan session.
