Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Mike Alvarado: Preview, Prediction for Welterweight Bout

Saturday night in Inglewood, California, Mexican boxing legend Juan Manuel Marquez returns to the ring for the first time since losing by split decision to Timothy Bradley last October. At 40, he will resume his quest to be the first five-division world champion ever from Mexico.

His opponent will be tough veteran and former junior welterweight world champion Mike Alvarado. He is also returning to action after a loss last October. But his defeat was far more brutal, as he went down to Ruslan Provodnikov by brutal Round 10 TKO.

Marquez will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. It's an event every time he enters the ring. Alvarado is a tough, action fighter who stands to get a major bump to his career if he can bring the legend down.
