After confirmation of his April 2 title shot against WBA interim flyweight champion Luis “Nica” Concepción (22-1, 17 KOs), Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (29-2, 22 KOs) says he is very motivated and confident that he will bring Mexico and Sonorans the championship he’s dreamed of. Promociones y Eventos del Istmo officially announced the fight card Thursday, which will also feature a WBA female super bantamweight clash between Chantall “La Fiera” Martínez and Lisa “Bad News” Brown.
“This is my dream, my goal and this time I will be fighting at my natural weight,” said Marquez. “Concepción is a great champion, but I have no doubt I’ll win. I know he’s at home, but I trust that the judges and referee the WBA appoints will be impartial and it will be a great fight for the fans as we both like to trade blows.”
