Photos: Marquez is Back With a Bang in Alvarado Win

Juan Manuel Marquez moved towards a fifth fight against Manny Pacquiao when he beat Mike Alvarado on Saturday night. The Mexican won the welterweight bout in Inglewood, California, by unanimous decision, dominating in the first tournament in 13 years at the Forum. By winning the bout 117-109 on two cards and 119-108 on the third, Marquez became the mandatory challenger to Pacquiao, who holds the WBO welterweight title. Photos by Chris Farina and Jeff Gross.

Marquez improved his record to 56-7-1, including 40 knockouts, by dismantling Alvarado in 12 rounds of technical brilliance and vicious power.

He knocked his American opponent down in the eighth round but was himself knocked down in the ninth, even though he bounced back and finished strongly.

Marquez staggered Alvarado right before the final bell, punctuating another victory for the 40-year-old four-division champion.

The victory set up Marquez for a possible fifth fight with Pacquiao, the former eight-division champion from the Philippines.

Alvarado, whose record dropped to 34-3, with 24 wins inside the distance, never got going and suffered his second consecutive defeat. He hardly landed a telling blow before the right that sent Marquez to the canvas.
