The danger of Rodel Mayol (30-5-2, 22KOs) does not intimidate WBA flyweight champion Hernan 'Tyson' Marquez (32-2, 25KOs), who defends his belt against the Filipino boxer this Saturday at the CUM in Ciudad Obregon CUM. Marquez expects to end the fight by knockout, and predicts that Mayol, a boxer promoted by Manny Pacquiao, will fall sooner or later from the punishment.
"Mayol is a tough opponent. He is very experienced and he is also dangerous with his fists, his head and he has faced quality fighters. But I'm coming into this fight with the best preparation of my career. I trained like crazy for this fight. I must be careful about some things, but I will show why I am the champion, why I take very tough fights, so I do not think the fight will reach the twelfth round," Marquez said
