Rafael Marquez returns to train with Nacho Beristain

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican two-division former world champion Rafael Marquez has decided to return to his former trainer, Hall of Famer Nacho Beristain, after five fights between 2010 and 2102 with trainer Daniel Zaragoza, was losing three fights and sustaining various injuries during that period as he faced strong opponents as Juan Manuel Lopez, Toshiaki Nishioka and Cristian Mijares.

Marquez signed a four-fight promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions and must return to the ring on September 6 against to Efrain Esquivias (16-2-1,9 KOs) at Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California.

Marquez decided to return the Romanza Gym looking for a new opportunity to return to the limelight at age 38. “It was a difficult decision to have gone to train with Daniel Zaragoza, I am a professional and I must admit my mistake. Beristain knows me, knows my weaknesses and strengths and I hope to return to get a world title shot. I owe it to myself and I hope to give my best in this new stage.”
