Hall of Fame Trainer, Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain talks about his work with Juan Manuel Marquez, he expects his fighter to give a great show against Mike Alvarado on May 17.
Beristain considers age is not a problem for Marquez because he works hard and takes good care of himself and that should allow them to fight for a long time like Bernard Hopkins.
Last October 12, in his first attempt at winning a record fifth world title in as many weight divisions, Márquez came up short, losing a split decision to defending WBO welterweight champion Bradley.
Meanwhile, his next opponent, Mike Alvarado's world title reign ended in his first defense, last October 19, where he suffered a 12th-round TKO to Provodnikov in front of a sold-out crowd in his Denver homecoming.
#MarquezAlvarado will take place May 17 and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing®, beginning at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT.
