Not just one more of the same. He is one of the strongest to come out of Mexico. He is Juan Manuel Marquez, 52-5-1, 38 KO’s, the fourth Mexican boxer to become a three division world champion. With a heavy loaded track record, he takes on Likar Ramos, 24-3, 18 KO’s, of less experience with the plan to outbox the youthful Ramos tomorrow night in Cancun, Mexico with Top Rank Boxing.
Ramos started boxing when he was nine years old and lost his two fights when he put his foot through the door in his professional career. However, since then, he’s been on a winning streak. He’s won Silver Medal and also Gold Medals one at the Pan American Games in 2003.
Marquez is likely to swim through this fight and there is hope that he may be ready to take on Manny Pacquiao in November, even though he will be more aged and a touch slower. After this fight he will possibly leave any underlying doubts behind as he is already voted the 4th in the pound to pound standings with “Ring Magazine”.
There will be deep examination and discussion after tomorrow night about his future. After his third fight with Pacquiao he may retire, he may not take the glory and be known as the one of the best fighters Mexico has seen.
He has been trained by the best trainers in Mexico. He’s been staying consistent throughout his career and giving unbeatable performance after performance. An orthodox boxer, Marquez is known for his speed and counter-punching style. His fighting style is elusive because, in most of his fights, he’s always rotating or moving his left hand and releasing overhand punches. He is also known for his precision power punching and devastating uppercuts. He is also noted as being one of the best combination punchers in the sport; capable of stringing together long series of punches from various angles that often forces his opponent onto the back foot.
We know what Pacquiao can do and we cannot do justice to him by describing his skill and power and ultimate speed, however this will also be an exciting match up with enormous entertainment which could round up to be one of the fights of the year.
