Rafael Marquez Back With Nacho, Inks With Golden Boy

By Rene Umanzor

Former champion Rafael Marquez (41-8, 37KOs) has signed a four fight agreement with Golden Boy Promotions. Marquez, 38-years-old, plans to return on a Golden Boy card on September 7th, and then wants to have three more fights before ending his career. Marquez last fought in October of last year, losing by way of a ninth round TKO to Cristian Mijares. Marquez was very angry with the stoppage, stating the referee jumped in too quickly in a very close fight. At the time of the stoppage, Marquez was ahead on one card and down on the other two.

"I've signed for four fights with Golden Boy and my return will be on September 7. I will make those four fights with Golden Boy and then say goodbye to boxing, which could happen in 2014. I need another world title, I feel pretty good to continue fighting. People will see the difference in Rafael Marquez. I have to show them that I have a lot left. There are many opponents who could face me.........Abner Mares, Leo Santa Cruz, Victor Terrazas," Marquez said.

After three years of training under coach Daniel Zaragoza, Marquez has decided to return to training with Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain, who also trains older brother Juan Manuel Marquez.
