Donaire: Marquez Will KO Alvarado, Lose To Pacquiao
By Edward Chaykovsky
Former world champion Nonito Donaire is picking Juan Manuel Marquez to score a knockout win over Mike Alvarado on May 17th at the Forum in Los Angeles. The winner of that match will get a guarateed shot at WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.
Although the Mexican star has protested the idea of a fifth fight with Pacquiao, Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach expects him to accept the contest. Roach also expects Pacquiao to avenge his sixth round knockout loss to Marquez from their fourth meeting in 2012. Donaire agrees.
“I think Marquez will knock him out with a head or body shot,” said Donaire to philboxing.com. “Alvarado’s not the same fighter anymore. He was badly beaten up by Ruslan and I don’t think he’ll ever recover from that. He’s also not a disciplined fighter. Marquez will beat Alvarado then go on to fight Manny again. This time, Manny will beat Marquez convincingly. Marquez has slowed down a lot and looked old in losing to Bradley. But he should be able to take care of Alvarado.”
I hope JMM loses so Manny is left with no legit opponent available.Comment by Snake4380 on 05-10-2014

Pinoy Hatton has had 4 chances to "Convincingly" beat Marquez. It hasn't happened, and guess what? It never will.:blackeye:Comment by lebrick on 05-08-2014
[QUOTE=BrushMyHair;14522856]Marquez should only have 3 losses. Norwood was a legit loss, Mayweather he definitely lost, and his third loss is Bradley.[/QUOTE] yeah right, he only losses to black fighters and the losses to asians like chris john and pac is…Comment by .:: JSFD26 ::. on 05-07-2014
No he won't. Lol Now everybody swears Marquez is some type of KO machine. But Pacman would beat Marquez if they have a 5th fight tho. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]Post a Comment/View More User Comments (50)
