Fedchenko Hits Mexico, Confident of Downing Marquez

By Rafael Soto

Mexico City - Loaded with motivation to surprise the entire boxing world, Ukrainian Sergey Fedchenko arrived at the International Airport in Mexico City, with his entire team, ready to face Mexican legend Juan Manuel at the new Arena Mexico in Mexico City. They will battle for the interim-WBO junior welterweight title.

Fedckenko (30-1, 13 KOs) arrived 15 days early to get his body used to the Mexican climate and the new time zone.

"We arrived to this continent with a winning mentality. I'm quite confident of defeating Juan Manuel Marquez. We know his style to perfection. He has the classic style of a Mexican counter-puncher. Our European boxing style is ideal to defeat him and to secure my dream," said Fedchecko, who is European WBO champion.

"It's a great opportunity to enter the American market by facing Marquez, a great fighter, but he is already in his final [career] moments and I'm fully at my best. No doubt this will be a great fight and I will come out winner."

problem with Fed is that he doesnt throw many punches, he is a counter puncher from what I seen of him, he got out gunned by Mabuzza who lets face it isnt top level.

[QUOTE=zab191;11962267]Marquez is wasting time fighting this wally. Demarco or Guerrero would have been a better fight.[/QUOTE] Guerrero is already fighting @ WW Demarco is a nobody but would've made a decent tune up.
