Margarito (39-8, 27 KOs) returns from a thrilling win over Jorge Paez Jr. He was forced to get off the floor to fight his way to a unanimous ten round decision at Arena Mexico City on March 5 after a retirement from boxing of almost 5 years. Margarito is training in San Diego for the fight.

"I felt a little rusty before the Paez fight after being out for so long, but now we're on pace. I like the fight against Ramon Alvarez and the styles will provide an exciting fight for the fans," Margarito said.

Alvarez (23-4-2, 15 KOs), a fan favorite in Mexico, is coming off an impressive streak of 10 wins including dominating decision over Omar Chavez, the younger brother of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

"I have always wanted the fight with Margarito, and now thanks to Fernando Beltran it will happen. It is an opportunity for my career and I have no doubt that I'll win regardless. I will go out there and give everything as I always do," Alvarez said.

"He's a warrior in the ring, he's very strong and has power, but I have faith in my talents and my preparation. Defeating Margarito will lead me to the super welterweight world title and assist me in achieving my dream."
