Former four division Juan Manuel Marquez liked what he saw last Saturday night in Las Vegas, when Manny Pacquiao recaptured the WBO welterweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand. Marquez returns on May 17th against Mike Alvarado at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
"I thought Pacquiao looked good. I thought he looked fast, strong. I think he was a little more cautious, but I thought he looked good with speed, good boxing, which he's shown in his previous fights," said Marquez.
If Marquez wins next month, he would be in line for a fifth fight with Pacquiao at the end of the year, but the Mexican icon is only focused on Alvarado right now.
"I do not know yet. I have a big fight on May 17, and I have to meet that commitment first. I know it's a natural fight to do [with Pacquiao], but first we have to walk before we start running," Marquez said.
