Alvarado Attack Exaggerated, Rios Fight Not in Jeopardy

By Rick Reeno

Manager Henry Delgado advised BoxingScene.com that circulating information regarding an attack on junior welterweight Mike Alvarado (33-1, 23KOs) is being greatly exaggerated. Various sources in Denver told BoxingScene that Alvarado was involved in a physical altercation where one individual attempted to stab the boxer. 

Delgado admits that there was a minor scuffle involving Alvarado, but the situation was squashed very quickly. The incident took place on Friday. Alvarado suffered a few minor scratches. Delgado laughed when asked to confirm if Alvarado scored a few knockouts during the altercation. The incident will in no way jeopardize the Rios rematch, says Delgado.

"Mike is fine. Nothing to worry about. Just a few scratches. He just finished a workout," Delgado told BoxingScene.com.

Alvarado is scheduled for a very anticipated HBO televised rematch with Brandon Rios on March 30th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Rios (31-0, 23KOs) stopped Alvarado in the seventh round on an all-out war on October 13, 2012. Their match was close to securing "Fight of The Year" honors for 2012 - until Juan Manuel Marquez pulled off the unthinkable and knocked out Manny Pacquiao in the sixth round of their December scrap.

Remember what Scully said? No matter what happens if you ask a promoter, trainer, manager or whoever how their fighter is doing they will always tell you they're A-Ok. I expect this to be the case here. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com…
