Hernan ‘Tyson’ Marquez aims for much-needed win in Sonora tonight

Former world flyweight champion Hernan ‘Tyson’ Marquez aims for a first victory in eighteen months in Mexico tonight against Eduardo Hernandez at the Gimnasio del Estado.

The 28 year-old, once a prominent member of the pound for pound ratings, has struggled since suffering a second career defeat to Brian Viloria in 2012 and has won just half of his fourteen bouts in the last five years.

Marquez labored to a draw with the unheralded Jose Quirino Jr. in April and needs a boost against Hernandez in order to keep his career on the right track.

No longer in the Top 40 world rankings, Marquez could see his ring spell fizzle out unless he can make a return to his previously exciting times when he took on the likes of ex-world title holders Luis Concepcion, Giovani Segura and Edrin Dapudong.
