Fight of the year kind of fight is always the intentions of “La Dinamita” who intends to set it of at the Forum. I predict Juan Manuel Marquez squeezing by Mike Alvarado with a late TKO. Marquez is a crafty defensive fighter with plenty of KO power still left in his canyons. Mike is a strong brawler who is hungry and has nothing to lose and the whole world to gain by defeating a legend like Marquez. The keys to victory in this “All or Nothing” kind of fight will be the foot work, head faints and the countering which all seem to favor the veteran. Some fans are calling for the winner of this fight to face Ruslan Provodnikov next.
JMM has one foot out the ring & the truth is that Ruslan Provodnikov is injurious to the health of JMM. The fans would not enjoy a 2-rd fight between Ruslan & JMM that would end up in a horrifying KO. JMM has stated that he only has 1-2 fights left in him so that being said why have him go out like a dirty sock. I see Juan Manuel Marquez doing a retiring tour seeking a title shot with a lesser threat of an opponent. JMM does not have a title nor does he have a mandatory fight & his odds are not as favorable like they were just a few years ago but his experience is well appreciated & respected. To see JMM fight is to show him respect for Boxing is what this legend loves to do.
Exposure is the key to the economical Boxing business of the game and nothing tops the name of Juan ” La Dinamita” Manuel Marquez vs a hard hitting well known foe like Mike Alvarado. HBO will be setting up, posting and throwing down in Inglewood California over at the Forum, Broadcasting Live and full of carnage on Saturday May 17 where all will bleed. The way that HBO has set their undercards seem to be preparing for an all out flurry of punches, combos and rumbles. Starting of like drumsticks beating on the drums of war it will be The NABF Prospecting Champion Diego Magdaleno with his pair of “Steel Magnolias” scoring 25 wins, 10 KOs and one slip of a defeat and will be testing his LA streak vs Oscar Bravo “The Mean Machine from Chile” who intends to add another victim to his 21 wins and 9 solid KOs being that he knows that its all or nothing like his 3 losses.
BOOM is what the fans will see when a KO is produced by the following battle of Viktor “The Ukraine Pistol” Postol blasting off in search of another KO putting up his undefeated record of 25 wins with 10 KOs against Selcuk ” Sick Minded” Aydin The Turkish Champion Warrior representing the WBC Mediterranean light welterweight title. The Main Event is none other than Juan Manuel Marquez vs Mike Alvarado and this will be one tremendous night of HBO Boxing for all the aficionados.
