Ukrainian Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs) continues to train hard for his scheduled fight against Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) on the 14th of April at the new Arena in Mexico City. Fedchenko ran in the morning at Chapultepec, where he also did exercises and boxed for four rounds with his sparring Artem Ayvazidi, and then went to his hotel where he took a bath, had breakfast and rested. He spent the rest of the day learning about the Mexican capital.
Through an interpreter of the Russian Embassy, manager and trainer Viktor Demchenko said:
"During his time in Ukraine, Fedchenko had a great preparation for this fight, and during his time in Mexico he's been staying sharp. The weight is under control, and virtually all he's thinking about is getting in the ring. I talked to Fedchenko and I've seen that he is very motivated with the biggest opportunity of his life."
"If nothing else, he is going to face one of the three or four best fighters in the world, but he was able to beat DeMarcus Corley and Argentine Juan Alberto Godoy, so there is no doubt he can upset the Mexican. When you see Sergey in the ring, you will witness a fighter with great skill. Marquez is not going to find things easy. Fedchenko going to box his way to a great victory."
