Marquez's Return Against Alvarado is a Matter of Finances

By Salvador Rodriguez

The return of former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez will not come cheap. Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KOs), 40-years-old, is certainly interested in facing Mike Alvarado (34-2, 23 KOs), 33, on May 17th at the historic Forum in Inglewood, California. The likelihood of the match is all coming down to a matter of reaching a financial agreement with both boxers.

But, Marquez has also stated that he won't return to gym for a sum of money that undervalues his worth. Top Rank and Zanfer Promotions work out the financial arrangements. If the monetary figures all fall into line, the fight has a strong possibility of coming off. Marquez likes the idea of headlining against Alvarado as part of a big event at the Forum.

The cost of such a fight would likely bounce the Mikey Garcia-Yuriorkis Gamboa clash, also targeted for May 17 at the same venue, to a different date.

[QUOTE=hitking;14241883]Alvarado was outboxing Rios in their first fight when he got caught, and decided to go to war. The second fight was nothing but an extension of what he should have continued to do the first time around. You're outta…

[QUOTE=Iceta Lives;14241834]People got a point with the Pacquiao-Rios thing in a way. But the way I think about it there argument is obsolete because Alvarado got lucky in the second fight and took a lot more damage. I think Rios…

[QUOTE=TLC8;14241529]Hilarious. Afraid to lose he opts for b-level Alvarado, with no belt, than to fight Provo who stopped Alvarado in his own backyard and took his title. Provo too risky, too hot of a fighter right now, who has been…
