LUMACAD LOOKING TO PULL-OFF UPSET WIN OVER ‘TYSON’ MARQUEZ

Super flyweight Fernando Lumacad is looking to pull off an upset against WBY flyweight champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez in Sinaloa, Mexico on Sunday, Manila Time.
Marquez plans to move up in weight and the fight against Lumacad is expected to serve as a test for the WBA flyweight champion who has been having trouble making the 112 pound limit.
The fight against Lumacad has been billed as a title eliminator and Lumacad is reportedly eager to make good use of the opportunity to enter into the world rankings by beating Marquez.
Lumacad is co-managed by well- known Australian promoter Peter Maniatis and Jim Claude Manangquil.
Maniatis told the Standard that Lumacad “is ready to pull off a stunning upset” when he battles Marquez who is having trouble making the flyweight limit and is testing the waters at 115 pounds. Reports from Mexico have indicated that Marquez plans to relinquish his title and move up to super flyweight.
Maniatis said Lumacad “is desperate to make a big impact against Marquez and put himself on the world stage with a win.”
The Mexican’s weight problems surfaced at the weigh in for his title defense against former world champion Rodel Mayol when Marquez tipped the scales two pounds over the limit but mysteriously made the weight five minutes later without even sweating it out.
Because of the controversy over the weight of Marquez, Mayol pulled out of the bout and promoters hurriedly matched Richie Mepranum in a ten round super flyweight bout which Marquez won easily.
