Rocky Martinez-Miguel Beltran Jr. WBO Eliminator on 8/4

By Rey Colon

Roman "Rocky" Martinez (25-1-1, 16 KO's), the former WBO super featherweight champion, will return on 4th of August at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, Bayamon. He faces Mexico's Miguel Beltran Jr. (27-1, 17 KO's) in which the winner will have the opportunity to move up in the rankings to get a shot at the unbeaten WBO champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19 KO's).

That night, as reported by Martinez himself, former WBO 105-pound champion Ivan Calderon, will chalenge Mexico's Moses 'Moi' Fuentes - and former WBO super bantamweight king Wilfredo 'Papito' Vazquez will face two-time champion Rafael Marquez.

"There are three strong fights with Mexicans againt Puerto Ricans. Mine is an eliminator and the winner will go for the title. I'm training for this like its the fight of my life. I have to get past Beltran Jr. to go for the crown again," he said.

[QUOTE=liraj;12215224]No one has ever beat Marquez easily. Marquez is really pumped for this fight, he said this is the first time he's having a 10 week training camp. He is washed up but all Mex/PR fights bring the best out…
