MANILA, Philippines – Mexican warrior Hernan “Tyson” Marquez is planning to leave everything inside the boxing ring when he faces Filipino-American Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria in a title unification fight this Saturday at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.

Marquez, the World Boxing Association titleholder, guaranteed that he will give his all against Viloria, who holds the World Boxing Organization belt.

“When I step into the ring on Saturday... I will be stronger, faster and tougher,” Marquez told Boxing Scene. “I’m willing to die to secure the victory.”

Marquez said that if he wins, it will be the most important win of his boxing career.

“I dedicate this fight to my people in Hermosillo and throughout Mexico, and of course my brothers and countrymen in Los Angeles,” he said.
