Verdejo's Manager Continues The Hunt For Experienced Trainer

By Miguel Rivera

As previously reported on, lightweight contender Felix Verdejo (23-1, 15 KO's) is trying to regain the reins of his career and has no intention of giving up after losing for the first time as a professional in March.

The boxer and his manager/trainer, Ricky Marquez, hope to add a man with more experience to the team.

According to Marquez, they have not made a decision on who will be selected as the new member of the team, but what is a fact is that Verdejo is already training for a possible return in the month of July or August, and the date will be confirmed soon.

Verdejo lost by technical knockout in ten rounds, at the hands of Mexico's Antonio Lozada Jr., in a surprise result at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

There were many who thought that this result would be the end of Verdejo's career, but neither he nor his team are willing to stop working until they have the opportunity to start again.

And that start will require a veteran voice in the corner.

"That is what we are looking for, a person of experience who will come in and contribute to the team," said Marquez to ESPN Deportes.

"After the last fight we want to reinforce the team. We do not know who it will be, we are looking and when we make a decision we will make it known. What we are looking for is someone experienced, someone who comes to support us."

The addition of a new coach to the team does not mean that Ricky Marquez will be gone from the corner. Ricky has been the architect in the career of the 2012 Olympian and does not intend to depart now that things got more complicated.

Verdejo's career has been sliding since a 2016 motorcycle accident, which forced him to withdrew from a planned title fight with Terry Flanagan.

I don't mind a loss or two, it toughen's them up sometimes. Lets see how he reacts. I was never anti Verdejo, just the velvet glove build up. No more training wheels, any trainer now has to use what he…
