By Jose Luis Camarillo,

Former two division champion Rafael Marquez (40-7, 36KOs), who arrived to his favorite gym in Coyoacán, where his trainer Daniel Zaragoza holds courts, revealed that he made a formal request to Top Rank to secure a rematch with WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-3, 24KOs) of Japan.

Marquez fought Nishioka last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The Japanese boxer was awarded a twelve round unanimous decision, but Marquez believes he was robbed of a win.

"I easily won seven rounds against Nishioka, and maybe he won the last three at the end of the fight, but that's why I really turned up my game," Marquez said.

Oh how surprising, a Marquez brother being a sore loser. I thought Mexican fighters were supposed to be tough...

even if two judges scored it 115-113, 115-113 for nishioka and the other judge scored it 115-113 marquez...i wouldnt want to see a rematch because i had nishioka winning 116-112...some of those rounds were close but being that nishioka landed the more telling blows, i gave him the close rounds ...

nishioka beats him again, no need for that. i say hang em up or fight arce or montiel, i'd love to see either fight.

[QUOTE=JubeiDOK]Mexicans always have trouble with chicken **** fighters that don't want to fight. Peck, peck, run, peck, peck, run. Boring fight.[/QUOTE] raf has slowed down and his combinations and positioning is not as good anymore... in his prime I think raf would've beaten nishioka

[QUOTE=RKI]Rafa is the king of making excuses for every loss. He needs to learn to stfu and accept the fact that he was not as good on that night and clearly lost the fight.[/QUOTE] yeah, the marquez bros are one of the worst sorelosers in boxing
