Former world champion Hernan "Tyson" Marquez went face to face with World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) flyweight champion Juan Francisco "Gallo" Estrada. The two fighters will collide on September 26 at the resort of Sonora.
"Gallo" Estrada (32-2, 23 KO's) vs. "Tyson" Marquez (39-5-1, 28 KOs) will be promoted by Zanfer Promotions and broadcast by Azteca 7, the House of Boxing.
Estrada trained hard for this contest in the mountains of Sonora. He hopes to continue his win streak to a future rematch with Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez. Marquez anticipates no issue with getting down to 112-pounds.
This was the second time the two boxers faced off in recent weeks. During the first press conference that was held to announce the contest, Estrada was unable to attend and Marquez had to wait a little while longer to stare into the eyes of the champion.
