Marquez vs. Alvarado Set For 5/17 At The Forum in L.A.

By Jake Donovan

Terms have been reached for a catchweight bout between Juan Manuel Marquez and Mike Alvarado. Representatives for both sides have confirmed that the bout will take place on May 17 at The Forum in Los Angeles.

An agreed-upon maximum catchweight of 143 lb. has been designated for the scheduled 12-round fight, which will air on HBO. 

Both fighters are coming off of losses in back-to-back weekends last October. Marquez fell short of dethroning unbeaten welterweight titlist Timothy Bradley Jr in Las Vegas, one week prior to Alvarado suffering a stoppage loss at the vicious hands of Ruslan Provodnikov. 

MORE DETAILS TO COME...
