BELL, CALIF. --- Juan Manuel Marquez and Mike Alvarado posed for photos together inside the ring at Wednesday's open workout at Azteca Boxing Club.
There didn't seem to be any hostility or animosity between the two fighters, who will meet on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on HBO. But earlier in the afternoon Alvarado told a group of reporters that he planned to retire Marquez from boxing on Saturday night.
"I don't like talking outside the ring," the 40-year-old Marquez said. "Everybody knows I don't like talking outside the ring. I do my job in the ring on Saturday and everybody will see a great fight. You will see a great boxer in the ring, a great fighter. I don't like talking outside the ring. What Alvarado say, I don't care."
