Here's the full, one-round video from Saturday night's fight between Hernan "Tyson" Marquez and Luis Concepcion. It was a hyped rematch between guys who put on a Fight of the Year contender on April 2 in Panama. This one took place in Hermosillo, Mexico. Video is courtesy Zanfer Promotions:
It's still almost strange to me that Marquez has solidified himself as one of the top flyweights in the world. Most of us got our introduction to him with the Donaire fight in July 2010, which saw him coming off of a loss to Richie Mepranum. In the Donaire fight, he was dominated, he was toyed with, and he was a stay-busy opponent. But he also did show guts, and he reminded me in that regard of Rodrigo Guerrero, the poor kid who was served up on a silver platter to Vic Darchinyan in March 2010. Guerrero took 12 rounds of a beating, Marquez was stopped in eight.
Now here we are, and Marquez holds the WBA title at 112 pounds, while Guerrero just picked up the IBF belt at 115. Go figure.
