Who is Marcos Villasana?
Villasana first challenged Azumah Nelson for the WBC featherweight title, losing a narrow split decision on February 25, 1986. A rematch 18 months later was also unsuccessful, as Nelson won a unanimous decision.
Villasana's very next bout was a third shot at the WBC featherweight title against champion Jeff Fenech, which resulted in a unanimous decision defeat. Shortly thereafter, Fenech relinquished the title and moved to the super featherweight division.
Villasana won the vacant WBC featherweight title June 2, 1990, defeating Paul Hodkinson. He successfully defended the title four times before losing a unanimous decision rematch to Hodkinson on November 13, 1991.
