Former multi-division world champion Rafael Márquez (41-7, 37KOs) is hungry to put on a show against Wilfredo "Papito" Vázquez (21-2-1, 18KOs) in a super bantamweight clash on August 4th in Puerto Rico. Marquez is one fight removez from a twelve round decision loss to WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka, while Vazquez is one fight removed from a decision loss to Nonito Donaire.

"We are coming to work and to give a good show to all of the people who bought tickets and plan to see it on television. We are going to come with everything. It might may end with a knockout, but I believe that the knockout will come. We hope that the people will leave satisfied," Marquez said.

Marquez would love to get a revenge match with Juan Manuel Lopez. He fought a war with Lopez for eight rounds in 2010, but couldn't come out for round nine after suffering a shoulder injury.

“In this fight I my shoulder was hurting me a lot, since the fight with Israel Vázquez. I wanted to [keep fighting], but from the third round on I was feeling bad. I could not lift my hands and after eight rounds I couldn't go any more. I would have liked a rematch but it's a pity that Orlando Salido [beat me to him]. And win or lose [against Vazquez] I believe that I have a few years left," Marquez said.

Rafa's swan song. Good Luck.

That's the spirit. Marquez has taken a lot of punishment for so low a weight class, hope he has 1 great fight left. Credit to Vazquez. He's taken on ever increasing stiff comp since Arce dethroned him. Very rare indeed. I'm pulling for the youngster but hopefully the best man wins!!:boxing:
