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.

[QUOTE=chubano]This guy is good, he looks better than Nonito vs Rigo. All the best for him.[/QUOTE] Upon watching Marroquin fight Rigo, I thought he was a very solid fighter. Of course, in light of Rigondeaux-Donaire, Robert is looking even better. It's nice to see the kid get more credit nowa...

Remember when people said that Rigo wasn't that great because he got rocked by a low level opponent named Marroquin? I think those people need to realize that Marroquin beat Russel jr & Broner in the amateurs, you got to be some what talented to do that no matter what level, good boxer indeed.
