Rafael Marquez eyes Juanma, Gamboa and Nishioka


Recommended Posts

Former champion Rafael Marquez was presented with three names for his comeback in the next few months. Marquez plans to return in March and then wants to have a big fight in the summer. He recently met with co-promoter, Zanfer, and he discussed three possible opponents - WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez, WBA/IBF featherweight champiuon Yuriorkis Gamboa and WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka, who may move up to featherweight.


Marquez has begun light training after injuring his shoulder in last year's loss to Lopez. He needs to get medical clearance by a specialist to set an exact return date. Juan Robi reports that Marquez is willing to make to any of the three fights.
