Rafael Marquez Says He'll Be Ready For Nishioka Shot

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Former two division champion Rafael Marquez (40-6, 36KOs) believes he is ready for a planned shot at the WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (38-4-3, 24KOs) of Japan. Marquez returned to the ring last Saturday in Cancun, Mexico and stopped Eduardo Becerril in five rounds. Marquez was fighting for the first time in eight months. He suffered a shoulder injury during last November TKO loss to featherweight Juan Manuel Lopez. The Nishioka bout is tentative for October 1.

"I felt pretty good, despite my inactivity of eight months. My right shoulder didn't give me any problems. The opponent had a good chin. On October 1, I'm going to face Toshioka Nishioka in Las Vegas," Marquez said.

I haven't seen Rafa's latest fight, but I think the Rafa that showed up for the JML fight would have a good shot against Nishioka.
