Rafael Marquez Will Face Kenichi Yamaguchi on May 5th

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Rafael Marquez (40-7, 36KOs), returning for the first time since the decision loss to WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka in October, will face Japanese boxer Kenichi Yamaguchi on the 5th of May at the Municipal Auditorium in Tijuana. Jackie "Aztec Princess" Nava will headline the show with a defense of her WBA super bantamweight crown against Colombian fighter Diana Ayala.

Yamaguchi, with a record of 17-2 with four knockouts and two draws, fought WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido for eleven rounds before being stopped.

a weak card , especially w/Ayala vs Nava...I like RM but he's past his prime...

This is one fighter I would like to see raise to the top again. Win at least one more title

At least he is not being used as a stepping stone for Donaire; though it could be worse, he could be a stepping stone for Mares while being on the receiving end of countless low-blows. Great warriors like R. Márquez…
