Marquez wants shot at Kell Brook’s IBF title

40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) reportedly wants to get a title shot against newly crowned IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs), presumably for his next fight date in November or December. Marquez wants to try and capture a 5th division world title, and Brook is the easiest of the fighters he’d have a chance to do that against now. Marquez doesn’t match up against [...]

Ken Porter not interested in Shawn P fighting Juan Manuel Marquez in Mexico

(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Ken Porter, the trainer/father of IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs), has absolutely zero interest in having Shawn go over to Mexican to fight 40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (57-7-1, 40 KOs) later this year if Porter defeats Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KOs) tonight in their fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Marquez’s promoter [...]

Schaefer’s split affecting Pacquiao, Marquez?

The boxing world is abuzz, and not in any way related to an upcoming fight or even a specific fighter. Richard Schaefer, the man who worked tirelessly to promote Golden Boy Promotions to the powerhouse that it is today, has left the company. Many are confused about what’s happening today, and how Al Haymon’s and Floyd Mayweather’s decisions will affect future business. But hopefully, it’s [...]

Why Juan Manuel Marquez should avoid a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao

When two fighters, who are almost evenly matched, fight multiple times, the outcome of each bout eventually becomes subject to the law of probabilities. In other words, the more times the combatants fight, the greater each one’s chance of losing – or winning. Applying this same law to Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, if they fought 10 times, they would probably win five fights each, on [...]

Marquez Sizzles and Pops in Win over Alvarado

Forty year old Juan Manuel "Dinamita" Marquez' (JMM) combinations were sharp and fast. His punches hissed through the air and then crackled when they reached their target. To Mike "Mile High" Alvarado, they must have sounded like the ear popping you hear and feel with a change of altitude. Early on both men seemed overly cautious, as though they were determined not to provide counter punch opportunities. [...]

Boxing Returns to the LA Forum in Style

Juan Manuel Marquez built his career at The Forum in Inglewood, California. From 1995 to 1999 he went 12-0 at the famed venue, making a name for himself among fight fans in the LA area. A decade and a half later “Dinamita” returned as an international star to face the bigger, younger “Mile High” Mike Alvarado. A pro Marquez crowd showed up and nearly blew the roof off The Forum with [...]

Marquez defeats Alvarado; Postol stops Aydin

Mike Alvarado (34-3, 23 KO's) did a brilliant job of showing how not to fight Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KO's) in losing a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision at the Forum, in Inglewood, California, USA. Alvarado, 33, decided to box Marquez for 12 rounds instead of using his superior size to try and score a knockout, and it cost Alvarado with him losing by the lopsided scores of 117-109, 117-109 [...]

This afternoon Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1) and American Mike Alvarado (34-2-0) stepped onto the scales for their last formality before Saturday’s crossroads bout. This wasn’t your typical weigh in full of trash talk and posturing, but rather respect and compliments. There was [...]

Will Alvarado turn Marquez into an old man tonight?

We saw the first hint of old age setting in on 40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KO's) in his loss to former WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley last October in Marquez's 12 round split decision loss. The judges were being kind to give Marquez a split decision loss in that fight because he arguably deserved to lose by a unanimous decision. But importantly than the fact that he lost [...]

Another View of Marquez-Alvarado: It’s Magnificent, But It Isn’t War

"C'est magnifique mais c'est pas la guerre." (It's magnificent, but it isn't war). ~Marshal Pierre Bosquet in 1854, as he watched English cavalry charge toward their doom in a brave but ill-advised attack upon a deeply entrenched Russian artillery battery during the Battle of Balaclava.~ Although Tennyson's poem remains the most famous piece of writing about the Charge of the Light Brigade, [...]
