Tyson Marquez Back in Camp, First Defense Set For 7/2

By Rafael Soto

The flyweight champion of the WBA, Hernan "Tyson" Marquez, has begun preparing for what will be his first title defense on July 2 in Hermosillo, Sonora. Marquez is back in camp in Los Mochis, where he started training the moment the date was confirmed for his first defense of his championship. Tyson (30-2-1, 23 KOs) will defend his world title at the Multipurpose Center in Hermosillo against a challenger who will be announced in the coming days. The challenger will likely come from Nicaragua, Panama or Peru.

"The celebrating is over and now it is time to prepare twice as hard because I will not allow anybody to deprive me of this title," said Marquez. Tyson won the title on April 2 in Panama, with a Fight of The Year knockout of Luis Concepcion. His first defense will be broadcast by TV Azteca.

"There is no doubt that dreams can be achieved and it's only a matter of believing in yourself, your believe in God. You have to be consistent in what you do and learn. Now I'm champion. I want to come out and give a great show and I know the people of Hermosillo will respond," Marquez said.

Don Manuel Montiel, head of the "Cochules" Gym in Los Mochis, is the trainer of Marquez. Montiel is the trainer of Jorge Arce, who last Saturday in Las Vegas captured the WBO super bantamweight title.
