Mexico's Hernan "Tyson" Marquez is very eager to go to war on the 29th of October in Hermosillo, when he defends his WBA flyweight title against Luis "El Nica" Concepción (23-2-18 KOs). Marquez (31-2, 24 KOs) captured the title in April when he traveled to Panama to unseat Concepcion with a tenth round stoppage. Many consider their meeting as the frontrunner for the 2011 'Fight of The Year.' Marquez plans to end the fight with the same outcome - a knockout.
"Concepcion will be tough, but I feel that I'm going to end it by knockout. Now we know him. I've had a much stronger preparation than I previously had prior to beating him. I'm going to box slowly. I want to give him a beating, and if the knockout comes - I will welcome it. He won't take away the title from me. He said that he's going to knock me out. I will pay him with actions, not words," Marquez said.
