Roberto Marroquin Looks To Shine in June 29 Return

By Ryan Burton

Featherweight contender Roberto Marroquin (23-2) is looking forward to returning to the ring next month when he faces Daniel Diaz (19-5-1) of Nicaragua on UniMas' Solo Boxeo series. The fight takes place at the WinStar Casino in Thackerville, OK. 

Marroquin bounced back from his September loss to WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux with a stoppage victory over Antonio Escalante this past March.

After the loss to Rigondeaux, the 5'8" Marroquin and his team decided to move up in weight. This fight is being fought at a catchweight of 128 pounds.

There is a possibility that Marroquin could soon move up to 130 pound super featherweight limit if the right opportunity presents itself but for now the Texas native is only worried about picking up another victory and putting on a great show for his friends and family.

"I'm feeling pretty excited about my upcoming fight on June 29. I will be going back to the Winstar, my home away from home," stated Marroquin.

"It definitely is a great feeling knowing your family and friends will be there to support. Daniel Diaz is my opponent and right now my only concern is to be at my best to take care of business no matter who my opponent is," Marroquin told BoxingScene.com.

Olympian Jose Ramirez will also see action on the card.

By the looks of things the fight with rigo did more good than bad for his career, despite taking a loss. I've always liked marroquin so hopefully he'll get the fights he wants
