Miguel Roman Training Hard For New Opponent Michel Marcano

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican puncher Miguel "Mickey" Roman will face Venezuelan Michel "El Gallo de Oro" Marcano on June 23 at the Juarez Fair in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico.

Marcano replaces Argentine contender Fernando Saucedo, who had been announced the previous week as the selected opponent.

Roman is arriving to this fight as the mandatory world title challenger, at super featherweight, under the World Boxing Council - after securing last December's big knockout victory over Orlando 'Siri' Salido in Las Vegas.


Roman has a record of 46 victories by way of knockout in the 59 wins that he already has in the professional ranks.

This fight, could be Roman's last stop, before facing Miguel "Alacran" Berchelt in the fight for the WBC world title of the super featherweight division.

In view of the importance of this fight, Román is holding his training camp in Maywood, California; under the supervision of coach Rudy Hernandez.

Roman, who is the 130-pound International champion and also ranked in the top spot by the WBC, knows that a winning formula needed to be repeat over and over - and that's why he's being guided by the instructive orders of Hernandez for the upcoming fight with Marcano.

Marcano is undefeated with a record of 16-0, and 13 by knockout.

"I feel at home with Rudy. We have a good working plan, there is a large group of sparring partners that I have available every day and I demand the maximum from the... there are fighters from all over the world and every day we face different fighting styles", Roman pointed out.

"Now we are going against an undefeated fighter and I can not afford a loss when I'm so close to a world championship fight. Venezuelans have recently sprung some big surprises in the ring, but I am better than ever and ready for whatever comes. My people of Juaritos will see a war and I'm going to leave with my hand up."
