Former champion Rafael Márquez says his trainer, former world champion Daniel Zaragoza, has given him a boost and the right motivation to win another world title. There have been rumors that Marquez will return in June, possibly against Eusebio Osejo. He aims to meet WBC junior featherweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka of Japan.

"I was world champion at bantamweight and featherweight. On the first of October I will look to win the junior featherweight title again in Las Vegas against the WBC titlist, Japan's Toshiaki Nishioka. With Zaragoza took two fights, and I also felt improvement in my technique," he said.

Rafael said he also received offers to fight for the featherweight championship of the World Boxing Association, against Yuriorkis Gamboa, but was inclined to be the WBC junior featherweight champion again.

"However the fight against Gamboa is there, and it can be taken into account later," he noted. "Boxers always have flaws. With Daniel I could improve some defensive things."

Zaragoza for his part, said: "A boxer such as Rafael, there is little to teach them. He is a good fighter, and has great punch. With him, what worries me is the physical background."

Marquez said that at 36 years old, he is in full swing and expected to fight a few more years and then plans to hang up his gloves to devote himself to his wife, Araceli Lomeli, and his sons, Israel, Aaron and Angel.

The former champion also said: "I'm ready for a fifth fight against Israel Vazquez, but it seems he is not going to return to the ring."

Marquez and Vazquez had four meetings in the ring. The first three were full blown wars, with the fourth being a one-sided three round knockout victory by Marquez.
