Concepcion's Manager Hopes Luis Will Learn From Defeat

By Miguel Rivera

On Saturday at the Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, Panama, Hernan "Tyson" Marquez (30-2, 23KOs) captured the WBA flyweight title by stopping Luis "El Nica" Concepcion (22-2, 17KOs) after ten rounds of non-stop, furious action in a clear frontrunner for the 2011 "Fight of The Year."

Rather than listen to the instructions of his corner or follow the planned strategy, Concepcion went to war from the very first round and rarely ever took a step back from going punch for punch with Marquez. After ten rounds, the fight was stopped when the ringside doctor felt Concepcion's face had taken too much damage to continue.

Concepcion's manager, Rogelio Espino, hopes the boxer will learn from his mistakes and improves.

"We have nothing to complain about [regarding the stoppage]. The fight was stopped because they acted based on the principles of protecting the fighter. We hope that this will serve him to mature and continue with his career because he is a great fighter," he said. "Hopefully this will serve him as an experience that not everything is about power, but you also have to use your head."
