Rafael Marquez Eyes Nishioka, Gamboa and Juanma

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Rafael Marquez was presented with three names for his comeback in the next few months. Marquez plans to return in March and then wants to have a big fight in the summer. He recently met with co-promoter, Zanfer, and he discussed three possible opponents - WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez, WBA/IBF featherweight champiuon Yuriorkis Gamboa and WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka, who may move up to featherweight.

Marquez has begun light training after injuring his shoulder in last year's loss to Lopez. He needs to get medical clearance by a specialist to set an exact return date. Juan Robi reports that Marquez is willing to make to any of the three fights.

Marquez vs Nishioka bring it on baby. But Gamboa is also ok. I like both Marquez brothers, they bring excitement to boxing.
