According to a May 17, 2014, SI report, everything boxing fans need to know about tonight’s Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Mike Alvarado showdown is now available, including live streaming online options, HBO fight card information and TV start time. The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., will be the site for tonight’s 12-round welterweight main event scheduled for 10:15 p.m. ET on HBO (DirecTV channel 501) and LiveSportTV (live stream).
The WBO International Welterweight title will be up for grabs this evening, but most of all, the chance for one of these two fighters to get back on the winning track. As reported by Scott Christ of SBN on May 16, tonight’s victor could be in line for a shot at Manny Pacquiao.
For Juan Manuel Marquez, his brutal knockout over the Pac-Man has been severely overshadowed by his split decision loss to Timothy Bradley. However, given the history between the two, it’s safe to assume that the soon-to-be 41 year-old Dinamita is a win away from a fifth clash with the Filipino Congressman.
For Mike “Mile High” Alvarado, a win over a legend like Juan Manuel Marquez would certainly erase the memory of being beaten into submission by Ruslan Provodnikov in his last bout. As the Denver Post reported on May 16, the 33-year-old from the Queen City of the West is “ready for war” against Marquez this evening.
Who will seize the moment and grab it with a chance to fight Manny Pacquiao in a big-money fight up for grabs? According to boxing oddsmakers Juan Manuel Marquez is a -300 favorite to defeat Mike Alvarado this evening, while the OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 11½ rounds.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a very exciting fight between a guy that loves to come forward, facing one of, if not, the best counter-puncher in boxing history.
