Rafael Marquez Asks Top Rank For a Nishioka Rematch

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

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.

[QUOTE=RKI;11259433]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…
