Fans support Juan Manuel Marquez

By WBA 26/07/2010

Hundreds of fans braved the heat at the famed Placita Olvera in Los Angeles today to welcome and cheer on WBA Lightweight Super Champion Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez before he heads to Las Vegas to face Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz in “Fight of the Year: The Rematch” on July 31 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Over 300 fans showed their support for Mexico’s “Numero Uno” and Marquez reciprocated that support by signing autographs for over two hours in the blazing sun.
“I was so happy that all of the fans came out to support me today,” said Marquez. “Arriving in the United States really makes me feel like the fight is almost here. I want to make the Mexican people proud and to be victorious on July 31.”
