Former world champion Hernan "Tyson" Marquez faces Filipino contender Mark Apolinario on Saturday night in Las Vegas - as part of a Unimas/Azteca 7. Former for Brian Viloria will see action on the same card. Marquez (37-4, 27 KOs) and "Iceman" Apolinario (18-3-3, 4 KOs) will be part of the bill at Texas Station Casino. Viloria will face Puerto Rican Juan Herrera on the Zanfer Promotions/Top Rank card.
Last November, Marquez lost to Giovani Segura by way of knockout in the twelfth round. Apolinario was defeated by unanimous decision by Koki Kameda, when he challenged the Japanese boxer for the 'regular' bantamweight title of the WBA.
