Roberto Marroquin, 25-3-1, (18KOs) is back in action this Saturday night in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, at the UAT – Universidad Autonoma De Tamaulipas, Mexico.
For this outing, Marroquin who has fought the majority of his bouts in the super bantamweight and Feather Weight ranks, will be fighting in the Super Featherweight class in a ten round bout against an undefeated fighter in Carlos Diaz ”Chuko” Ramirez, 19-0, (10KOs) hailing from Guadalajara, Mexico.
Having grown up and his body filled in and fighting in the Super Featherweight ranks for this bout, Marroquin states that he can still do Featherweight, but as this fight is at a catch-weight, he is comfortable and will see is this new weight class suits him best.
”I can do the weight, (Featherweight) but I have grown up and my body has filled out, I feel very good and strong now, and based on the outcome of this fight, me and my team will talk about which weight class we will stay in” said Marroquin.
Long-time manager, Luis Perez since he turned pro, in one capacity or another, but as the main manager now, along with with Paul Reyes (trainer) and Sergio Diaz as the co-main manager.
A fixture in Texas boxing circles, Reyes had retired but came back for Marroquin.
In the last two outings for Marroquin, the Dallas, Texas fighter walked away with wins. The first one came against Miguel Soto, a previously undefeated Puerto Rican, beating him in four. Another undefeated fighter in Kien Evans lost that status against Marroquin, who took the WBC / U.S.A Feather title.
Getting a win against Ramirez this Saturday night is crucial, as a loss is a monkey-wrench at best, with a win, leading the way to another title shot in the near future.
