In his first fight since losing his WBA flyweight title against Brian Viloria last November, Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (36-3, 27 KOs) scored an explosive third round KO over Edgar ¨Power¨ Jíménez on Friday night at the Gimnasio del Estado in Hermosillo, Mexico. A powerful left cross ended matters. Time was 1:44.
“We’re back!” said Marquez. “This is what we wanted so we prepared for two months. I have no doubt that I’ll be world champion again. I know that my promoter Zanfer will soon have me in the running to go for a world title. I’m immediately going back to the gym to get ready to go against Viloria, Estrada, whoever…I’m very satisfied and motivated. Thank you all for standing by me and believing in me. I’m back with more desire than ever. I’ve been told that it’s almost a fact that on June 1 we are in the ring again.”
