Legends On Disc - Juan Manuel Marquez 42 Fights on 16 DVD'S. Juan Manuel Márquez Méndez (born August 23, 1973, in Mexico City) is The Ring lightweight world champion. He has also held the IBF, WBA, and WBO
featherweight (126 lb) titles and the WBC super featherweight title. Márquez comes from a strong boxing pedigree. His brother, Rafael Márquez, is a former world champion who has won world titles at the bantamweight and super bantamweight divisions. Márquez had an amateur record of 35-1 that included two Golden Glove tournament wins. He made his professional debut at age 19 on May 29, 1993 and lost his first bout via disqualification to Javier Duran. Márquez wouldn't lose again for another six years as he compiled a record of 29-1 that included a win over future champion Agapito Sanchez, and former champions Julio Gervacio and Alfred Kotey. In 1997, Márquez won the NABO featherweight title, which he defended seven times. Marquez moved up to 135 pounds himself in order to face the linear lightweight title holder Joel Casamayor on the weekend leading up to Mexican Independence Day at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. On September 13, 2008, he defeated Casamayor by stopping him in the 11th round after two knockdowns and captured his sixth world title in three different weight classes. After the win, Ring magazine ranked him second on its pound for pound list and rated him the number one champion in the lightweight division.
