Trainer Nacho Beristain is looking forward to Juan Manuel Marquez's returns on May 17th, when he faces Mike Alvarado (34-2, 23KOs) at the Forum in Los Angeles, California. It will be the first fight for Marquez (55-7-1, 40KOs) since a twelve round split decision loss to WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley last October.

"He is a difficult opponent for a fighter like Juan. [Alvarado] is a tremendous puncher. It's ideal for Juan to provide a big fight to the public, but [this one is] dangerous, because [Alvarado] is young and strong," said Nacho.

If Marquez wins, Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, has already confirmed that he would fall in line for the winner of the April 12th rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Bradley.

Nacho is not very supportive of a fifth Pacquiao-Marquez meeting. He would rather have things end like they did in 2012, when Marquez knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round of the fourth fight.

“What Juan Manuel wants more than anything is this [fifth] championship [at welterweight], and that's why the name of Pacquiao is once again [being discussed]. But I believe that if he gets past [Alvarado], Juan Manuel can fight for [a world title from] another sanctioning body. There is no reason for him to face Pacquiao again, who he already conquered with that tremendous knockout," Nacho said.

To Be Honest, I think Alvarado has a decent chance of beating Marquez. JMM's reflex is a lot slower with those extra pound and with age. I see a potential close fight between JMM and Alvarado.

[QUOTE=Holywarrior]Yeah I'm definitely over these fights too. Time to call it a day very very soon.[/QUOTE] Floyd fans have a built in mechanism that let's them say NO to good fights (Manny vs Marquez) and call fights where majority ALREADY agree on who will win, "a good fight" (Floyd vs Maid...

No Memo Heredia powered pellet this time so no more Pacquiao.

[QUOTE=HeroBando]So why should they fight at 135, cause Morales can't manage his weight? He's done nothing at the weight, and looked like sh1t each time. Should Pac also have fought Hatton at 175?[/QUOTE] no cause hatton is a NW 140 lber. morales couldnt make weight anymore, when he could he...
