Juan Manuel Marquez Sees A lot of Danger in Fedchenko

By Miguel Rivera, notifight.com

Three division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6, 39KOs) is taking no chances with his upcoming fight on April 14th in Mexico City. Marquez will face Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs) of Ukraine for the vacant interim-WBO 140-pound title.

Marquez was originally scheduled to take on Argentine boxer Cesar Rene Cuenca, who is unbeaten with 42 wins, but only a single knockout on his record. Cuenca fell through and Fedchenko stepped in. Marquez believes Fedchenko is a very dangerous opponent, and certainly more dangerous than Cuenca.

Because Cuenca and Fedchenko present two completely different styles, Marquez and his trainer, Nacho Beristain, have to scramble to secure new sparring partners, study new tapes and change their entire fight strategy. 

"I think the public will gain from the change of opponent. Against Rene Cuenca, of Argentina, [I had] a boxer with a tough style. With Fedchenko, who I know is from Ukraine, I have a very strong fighter who is always looking to get a knockout. He has a good punch, and his history reflects that. He has 30 wins, one loss and thirteen of his wins have been by knockout. He has faced the best in the world, he's a very strong fighter and he has shown resilience. I'm definitely going to have a very dangerous opponent," Marquez said.

This is a safe fight for JMM. Nothing wrong with it either he is securing his shot for another big fight after this. He is not a champion so he has no mandatory or obligations to fulfill.

[QUOTE=JSS;11909335]Lakar Ramos, the infamous phantom punch!!! Really? And now The Professor, who has never lectured outside of his native Ukraine. Really? While Pac is taking on a LWW champion in Timothy Bradley. If JMM was such a champion, as you…
