The return of former world champion Rafael Marquez (37-5, 33 KOs), in a ten-round co-main in Monterrey, Mexico on the Jhonny Gonzalez vs. Toshiaki Nishioka card, may be a quiet one, but the man who fought three classic battles with Israel Vazquez in 2007-2008 is looking for something big in his next outing. Marquez told the media today that while he would face the winner of tomorrow night’s main event, he would prefer a fourth fight with Vazquez. Meanwhile, Jose Francisco Mendoza (21-2-2, 17 KOs), of Colombia, has promised to derail Marquez by scoring a knockout before the seventh round, stating that it will be “Mendoza vs. Jhonny Gonzalez in the next fight.” Both Marquez and Mendoza weighed in at 126 today at the Arena Monterrey.
