Marquez wins in a wild contest against Alvarado

In a WBO welterweight eliminator, future Hall of Famer Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) scored a clear twelve round unanimous decision over Mike Alvarado (34-3, 23 KOs) on Saturday night as boxing made its triumphant return to the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, California. Alvarado, respecting Marquez’ counter-punching skills, laid back and let Marquez lead, thus allowing Marquez to dictate the pace and put rounds in the bank. Alvarado became more aggressive in the middle rounds. Marquez dropped Alvarado with a right hand at the end of round eight. In true warrior fashion, Alvardo responded by flooring Marquez in round nine. Tremendous exchanges for the rest of the round. Marquez pressed the action in the tenth and went on to win by scores of 117-109, 117-109, 119-108. With the win, Marquez becomes mandatory challenger to WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.
