Marquez-Alvarado Will Have a Catch-Weight of 144

By Salvador Rodriguez

Henry Delgado, manager of former champion Mike Alvarado, has revealed that a proposed fight with Mexican superstar Juan Manuel Marquez would take place at catch-weight of 144-pounds. The fight is being negotiated for May 17th at the legendary Forum in Inglewood, California.

Marquez's last two fights took place in the welterweight division, but Delgado is not worried about the higher weight. He is confident that Alvarado will do very well, since his fighter is naturally bigger than Marquez.

Both fighters are coming off defeats, with Marquez losing a twelve round split decision to WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley last October and Alvarado getting stopped, in the same month, by Ruslan Provodnikov.

If Alvarado wins, Delgado says his boxer would be ready for a rematch with Provodnikov or even a trilogy fight with Brandon Rios.

"The fight would be at 144 pounds, but it doesn't matter. Alvarado will do well at the weight, because he is bigger than Marquez. I hope that by next week they will make an official announcement," Delgado said.

"Anyone who thinks that Alvarado will be easy for Marquez is very wrong. After beating Marquez, we would want a rematch with Provodnikov and with Rios. When [Alvarado] is well trained he can beat anyone."

[QUOTE=Bigg Rigg;14252889]Here's my problem though, JMM got schooled by Bradley. There was no robbery and IMO there shouldn't even be a rematch. And if so, I'm not with a tune up fight and then get another shot at the title.…

What kind of garbage is this? This dude should have just retired after Pac 4.

I was sure Marquez insisted he would either get a rematch to avenge his loss to Bradley, or retire. He went on to say no other fight interested him. Hmmm, is he really willing to risk another loss? Maybe he…
