Luis 'El Nica' Concepcion is ready to do it one more time with Hernán 'Tyson' Márquez. Last Saturday they traded knockdowns and went to war for ten rounds of action at the Arena Roberto Durán in Panama City. Concepcion's face was badly swollen by the end of the tenth. The ringside doctor stopped the fight before the eleventh round could get going and Marquez was given the victory and Concepcion's WBA flyweight title. The Panamanian apologized to his fans and admits that he followed the wrong strategy in the fight.
"I made a mistake in the pattern of the fight. I concentrated too much on landing a single big shot and the truth is I neglected my defense, which Marquez exposed and connected with punches. I don't think this loss will greatly affect my preparation but I'm left with the experience of being more focused for future fights. This is a learning experience. The title was lent to Mexico and I want to assure the people of Panama that I will do everything in my power to recover that belt and bring it back here to regain your trust," Concepcion said.
