A final press conference was held today at the Crown Plaza Hotel, downtown Monterrey, Mexico, for Saturday night’s WBC super bantamweight title fight between champion Toshiaki Nishioka (33-4-3, 20 KOs), of Japan, and Mexico City’s Jhonny Gonzalez (40-6, 34 KOs). In the co-main event, former world champ Rafael Marquez (37-5, 33 KOs) will stage his return after his three unforgettable wars with Israel Vazquez, in 2007-2008. Marquez faces Colombian Jose Francisco Mendoza (21-2-2, 17 KOs) in a WBC super bantamweight title eliminator.  The card, promoted by Promociones del Pueblo, features three additional ten-rounders.
