Alvarado appeared depleted to me v. Provodnikov. i detected noodly-limbs and no second wind. IF the real Alvarado shows up v. Marquez, i lean toward Mikey. IMO, Marquez is too small to earn easy wins at 147lbs and Alvarado’s a tough and bigger customer going into this matchup. the 40-something Marquez has aged gracefully but he may finally hit a wall v. Alvarado. Btw, Marquez is an excellent counter-puncher but he also doesn’t remain idle whenever an opponent retreats. that’s when i think a lunging and sometimes reckless Marquez begins to seriously flirt with a TKO loss.Posted April 10, 2014 4:53 pm

@MikeTyson; I totally agree about your assessment of this site!!!Posted April 10, 2014 4:34 pm
@moonshineman.., If Alvarado wins Marquez will probably retire … it’s obvious he’s done if he can’t beat this guy.
But I honestly don’t expect that to happen. Alvarado has tremendous will and drive… boxing skills are another matter.Posted April 10, 2014 4:32 pm
Still waiting for the cotto and martinez fight, this site is holding back that fight.
Marquez can beat Alvarado… He could still win a 5th Divisional World Championship with another title. That wrong tark, Alvarado is a former belt holder, so he has a title, Marquez would be the first time fighting at 147# before it was Floyd at 144 lb so this is a new weight class. But Marquez has to fight a belt holder at 147 lb to get another weight belt or title,
If Alvarado retired with the belt and agree to put the title on the line then Marquez get the title from
Greatness inside the boxing ring comes to a fighter that is special. The great fighter does things that others can’t quite duplicate. He does things effortlessly and without having to think. The attributes he possesses (power, speed, athleticism, movement) are gifts he was born with. Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter that does things that leave boxing fans in awe. He can punch with the power of an earthquake. He has hand speed that rivals that of a striking cobra. He has the graceful foot movement of the great football player, Barry Sanders comes to mind. And he has the aura of invincibility that gives him the chance to beat anyone at any time. Manny Pacquiao will grace us with his presence on April 12th in Las Vegas. He has returned to take back a title that was unjustly stolen from him by Timothy Bradley with the assistance of the ring judges. The boxing world is once again alive, filled with anticipation and excitement to see greatness in the ring. Manny Pacquiao will bring in the movie stars, professional athletes, musicians and world leaders to the fight. Any Pacquiao fight bests the World Series, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup or the World Cup. The magnitude of excitement reaches all four corners of the world. Those fortunate fans that come to Las Vegas get a double treat as Manny will likely perform his celebrated hit song like “Sometimes When We Touch.” Manny is a boxer, singer, actor, but more importantly an entertainer that aims to please fans, which he consistently does. There will be no more Manny Pacquiao’s once this legendary fighting machine retires for the squared circle. Manny has fought the best of his time and beaten them all. He is respected and admired by all of his boxing peers. Fans enjoy watching his fights because they know there is action, excitement and they are watching the ONLY 8 division boxing champion in history. This by itself classifies him as the best ever. If only one man can reach the top of mountain, every other man falls short. Manny Pacquiao is the only man to reach a little higher than all the rest. Is he the greatest ever? Quite possibly, but I will not become a braggart and tarnish any part of Manny Pacquiao. I will say that he is arguably the best of all time, and leave it at that. Manny Pacquiao is without a doubt one of the most influential people ever. He reaches people of all walks of life. Manny Pacquiao is quite unique as he personifies greatness inside and outside the ring. The pugilist and the person are both one in spirit. This is a special man that encompasses greatness. Trust me on this. Manny is one of a kind. Manny’s the best!Posted April 10, 2014 12:05 pm
Marquez can beat Alvarado… He could still win a 5th Divisional World Championship with another title shot at a beatable opponent with a title.
What if Alvarado wins?.Posted April 10, 2014 10:43 am

He needs to retire. Pac being talked of needed a win, and retirement. Pacs not
Guess now you see the importance of any fighter being the best of the camp or best of top rank or best of GBP . That is why Floyd need to meet the Bradley or PAC soon to find out if Floyd is the best. He has to earn that spot. Not because the mayweather say so.Posted April 10, 2014 3:10 am
They don’t fight for titles, you can’t take their title you have to earn that title by fighting a belt holder any 5 belts of a weight class
Marquez is fighting a guys with a title former champ because he lost the belt to prov who Bradley took that belt away, as he took manny belt and Marquez belts.
So Marquez can’t get a another belt or title unless he fought a belt holder, he not. and he not intitled for a fight with the winner of this fight as writers have said.

TARK, Bradley v. Marquez was a Draw and i’m not caught up in Marquez’s Quixotic mission to capture another title. IMO, he’s already accomplished what he’ll be remembered for. he’s committing the mistake of fighting too long. even if i’m wrong, i’m right. he has no real need to risk it other than pride and pride always hurts, it never helps, but Marquez is a very proud fighter. a 40-something featherweight fighter campaigning(?!) among prime and natural 147lbrs. this position has become a cornerstone of my notoriously objective posts on the subject and i’ve never posted anything otherwise. how could you miss it?Posted April 10, 2014 1:24 am

That’s another indication Bradley won it clearly… which he did. It was close but clear margin of victory. You need to watch fights with a little more objectivity.

“unfortunately, Pacquiao’s* fanboys usually refer to that as “crying” and “whining” about an official loss that is already in the books. ”
Which is exactly what you have been doing, te tumbo, regarding the Pacquiao/Marquez fights, for oh so long. You go on and on and on, and you’ve even attached a * to Pac’s name just to make it very clear to everyone that you hate and despise him with every bone in your body. You’re song and dance routines about Manny Pacquiao are ancient stale and covered with lichen.
Bottom line, Pac is ahead in their 4-fight series by a score of 2-1-1.
So get it right, Marquez fanboy, Juan’s two losses to Manny are, and his recorded domination of Marquez, as you specifically stated, is “official” and “already in the books.” All your whining will NEVER change those facts. The only thing that will change that record is if they fight again, but that means there’s a 50-50 chance that another win will appear in Manny’s column.Posted April 9, 2014 10:22 pm

Series, championship, best 3 out of 4, it doesnt matter. ONLY 1 thing counts and its that MURDEROUS KNOCK OUT!!! thats the only thing that is cemented in the history books. Its like Tyson, all those killer knockouts & his undefeated record were overshadowed by ONE (1) sole upsetting defeat at the hands of James Buster Douglas. Everyone remembers him for that KO and likewise, everyone will remember for all eternity Marquez putting Pacquioa to sleep.

MOONSHINEMAN, it’s great(?) that Pacquiao* has the promotional clout to at least be able to rehabilitate his official loss into a virtual “win”. unfortunately, Pacquiao’s* fanboys usually refer to that as “crying” and “whining” about an official loss that is already in the books. consequently, the special judging panel of five(!?) judges is only suitable for publicity purposes not disputing what has already been documented in the official books and annals of boxing, e.g., Marquez’s rivalry-ending KO of Pacquiao*.Posted April 9, 2014 7:38 pm
Bradley wins the rematch and he establishes his irrefutable superiority over Pacquiao*. after all, he already leads the series 1-0.
After the decision the WBO ordered a video review of the bout. The five judges on the WBO’s committee all scored the fight in Pacquiao’s favor — 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113.Posted April 9, 2014 6:19 pm
“. . . a rematch win is superior to an initial bout win”, which makes Marquez’s spectacular and rivalry-ending KO of Pacquiao* the most convincing and decisive (not to mention upset) win of the series. Marquez is Greater.Posted April 9, 2014 5:51 pm
TARK, i scored Bradley v. Marquez a Draw but it was close enough that neither could claim “robbery”. besides, Bradley deserves the nod if only because Marquez is no welter. even with the added bulk, Marquez’s physical dimensions appeared a solid notch smaller than Bradley who is not a big welter himself. Marquez will always experience difficulty simply trying to reach a natural welter without paying a stiff tax. as if 40-something wasn’t enough of a detrimental factor, Marquez should be targeting 135lb-140lbrs at Most.Posted April 9, 2014 5:49 pm

Tumbo.., I agree that Marquez was looking for the KO shot. It was a thing of beauty. I had JMM winning each of the 3 previous fights by a point or more.
However, I did not officially judge any of their fights… The way it went down is: Pacquiao won the series 2-1-1 to broad disagreement among judges, writers, commentators, and fans.
Now, Pacquiao has a chance to beat the last man to beat the ATG Juan Manuel Marquez … and Bradley gave Marquez his most decisive defeat to date.
That will only elevate Pacquiao’s standing among ATG’s in fistic history.Posted April 9, 2014 5:21 pm
Hope Pacquioa doesnt get knocked out by ANOTHER “lucky punch”…lol. Man, Even Pacquioa called it a PERFECT punch. but all the Pactards can’t seem to understand that at this level of the game there is no such thing as a lucky punch.

“One lucky shot doesn’t decide who wins a series”. it’s not “lucky” when you share the fight-plan, guarantee the outcome, and not only deliver but exceed expectations by elevating the historical bar for absolutely brutal, rivalry-ending KOs. what Marquez did was the equivalent of Hanley Ramirez stepping up to the plate in game 7 of the Series, pointing to deep center field, and CRUSHING a 3-2 pitch over the wall and out of the stadium for a walk-off homerun. when was the first time any of you have witnessed that accomplishment? or it’s equivalent? . . .

Manny Pacquiao is just days away from putting on his best performance in the squared circle since he came on the scene. There’s no fight like a Pacquiao fight. This is more than just an event, it’s more like the Presidential race, The World Series, The Super Bowl and man landing on the moon. In the future, us boxing fans need to write congress and request a national holiday for Manny Pacquiao. He brings happiness to all of us. The killer instinct is never a question for the greatest pure fighter in the history of boxing. Never ever question this man’s courage, skill or killer instinct. You don’t EVER what to get personal with this warrior or you will pay dearly as Timothy Bradley is going to find out. Manny’s has finally arrived in Las Vegas, and the city is on fire. There’s excitement at every corner of the sin city, but the angelic Manny Pacquiao has brought it peace and love. Set your DVR’s, purchase your VHS tapes and clean your recording equipment because this is going to be historic. You have all witnessed Manny vs Morales, Manny vs Hatton, Manny vs Barrera, Manny vs Marquez, Manny vs De La Hoya and Manny vs Margarito. All historic, exciting, fights that will be remembered for ages to come. Timothy Bradley vs Manny Pacquiao 2 will surpass all of them if that’s even possible. You’ll see the brutalizing straight left hand, the crushing right hook, the incredible feints, the dazzling foot work, the cobra like in and out movement, the heart of a lion, the destruction of Timothy Bradley. I recall what Adrian said to Rocky at one point in the Rocky series movies. She looked at him before taking on Clubber Lang and said “You can’t win.” Timothy Bradley has been hearing this from everyone. And everyone is right. No matter what he does, he can’t win. Manny will stop him before the 4th round or no later than the 9th. The greatest fighter in boxing history reclaims his throne. Trust me, Manny wins in exciting and stunning fashion. Manny is the best!Posted April 9, 2014 3:46 pm
Tark, I agree, Freddie has been doing a lot of talking, which rubs me wrong since Manny is such a humble guy and does his talking in the ring. I can see the Mayweathers doing a lot of talking, but Freddie is becoming somewhat annoying. The retirement talk is unnecessary. He should let Manny handle everything from here on. No one wants to hear any negative stuff whatsoever especially coming from the trainer. Manny is still going to stop Bradley IMO, but Freddie has to check himself.Posted April 9, 2014 2:12 pm
Roach shouldn’t be talking negative.
Such as “Manny will have to retire if he loses.” You go over the consequences of losing in your mind, and what could possibly cause you to lose — just so you don’t leave any stones unturned. But you don’t talk about losing except in a closed setting with your team.
You can be satisfied with a loss… but only if you did everything humanly possible to win and you got fair decision. Maybe you’re getting an unlikely title shot and you’re a huge underdog. Underdogs win too. They do it by fighting to the max of their ability after putting together an outstanding training camp.
When you see a fighter who’s perfectly prepared, you see an alertness, excitement, and anticipation in his face as he takes the ring. Some fighters look like they don’t want to be there … or like they’re faking a positive attitude.Posted April 9, 2014 12:52 pm

“What’s gonna be your excuse tonight, Roy?” completely let all the gas out of a presumably gas-filled Junior. the first and only time i saw that from Roy who was usually working his yapper before, during, and after each fight. perhaps Tarver’s challenge triggered a premonition because it transformed the once untouchable Roy Jones into a very concerned Junior from that point forward.Posted April 9, 2014 1:30 am
largo = what makes you think pacs punch resistance is gone. you have no evidence of that, just mere guesswork. plenty of people get Ko’d without losing their punch resistance. so you are guessing and passing it off as fact. not a good idea champ. pac will monster your boy Bradley (and I like Bradley)Posted April 9, 2014 1:23 am

PAC all the way, bradley get a dirty beat down, Bradley try’s but is too slow. His punches are too wide and lobbing, PAC shoot in between and in angles all straight shots that connect cleanly.
Tark , whats your pick on the Bradley Pac fight?, btw dont dance around your pick, ya digPosted April 8, 2014 10:09 pm
Boxers do try for the seemingly unlikely result.. Lots of times they get it.. Antonio Tarver was robbed in the first Roy Jones fight after waiting many years to fight Roy.
He was pretty confident going into the 2nd Jones fight.. He felt the referees were not going to screw him again again, because he was gonna ice Jones.
“Are you gonna have any excuses tonight Roy?” AT badly wanted the KO and he got it … ditto Marquez over Pacquiao.
You have to give up points to get the KO over that caliber of fighter.. You have to wait and wait for the right shot.. That’s usually something you’re not going to do unless you believe you can’t get a judges’ vote anyway.Posted April 8, 2014 8:52 pm
gotta hand it to Largo. his logic is fundamentally sound and it’s tempting to bet against Pacquiao’s* “compromised” punch resistance. if this bout unfolds as Largo has consistently been describing since it was announced, it will go down as one of the boldest predictions i’ve ever read on ESB. exceeding my own in favor of Martinez v. Williams II and Marquez v. Pacquiao* IV. those were easy but picking Bradley to win by KO stoppage? we’re talking minor-miracle, here. the same minor-miracle that Marquez, Ortiz, Guerrero, Canelo, and Cotto couldn’t count on to defeat Mayweather.Posted April 8, 2014 8:29 pm

the once great boxing eyeatolla ricardo mayorga said,its a trick…your body react well to a punch it sees coming.its the ones you dont see that cause the damage.i beleive bradley is quick enuff to land a punch like that, he just has to be willing to put himself in the position to do so which of course will also put him in harms way.Posted April 8, 2014 6:22 pm

“Largo, who has Bradley stopped lately or even come close to doing that?”…………Tim wobbles & hurt everybody he fights; he hurt Provo real bad & Roach thought about stopping the fight. He almost dropped Marquez with a counter left hook, but my main point is Pacs punch-resistance after that devastating KO…I don’t think Manny can take a hard shot on the chin without going to sleep. Bradley has enough power to stop an already compromised Pac…I truly believe that & only after the fight will know if I’m right or wrong. My prediction stays the same:Tim by stoppage.Posted April 8, 2014 3:27 pm
Edit .The fight was scheduled to take place at 144 lbs September 19, 2009 Márquez weighed in at 142 lbs and Mayweather weighed in at 146 lbs. Marquez came from 135 lb 7 month earlier koed Dias.Posted April 8, 2014 3:27 pm
Manny paqiou will have his hands fulls.make no mistake, bradley is not the punching bag that is rios, hes proven he can not only box but brawl and has the ablity to adapt in that ring.i see this as a close fight and will be shocked if one is dominate or if we see a k.o…i have paqiou on points based on activity but would really love to see tim put a little more leverage on his punches and sit on them for this fight, due to what happened in the pac and marquez fight in sure there has to be some doubt in paqious head.Posted April 8, 2014 3:16 pm
Not to mention Marquez got to 145lb from Floyd fight by eating quill eggs 20 small eggs a day as protein. Damm that bad cholesterol. For PAC he had the same training as PAC and a private eating adviser.Posted April 8, 2014 2:20 pm
If PAC loses and he got outboxed, he should retired, he got as far as he can given he a large jr.w.w. now at 144-145 of fights. And boxing damage is his bread and butter now.
Then the question is Floyd up against Bradley the best slugger boxer from top rank. How will Floyd do against Bradley. You can rate floyd Marquez Victory here because Floyd fought Marquez comming from a small Jr WW and was a natural Jr M.W 154+ true marquez came up to 145lb from 140 lb
I would liken it to if you don’t count PAC win over Oscar you don’t count Floyd win over Marquez.
If pacquiao loses this his relevance in the sport will be gone. It will also let the world know that If he can’t definitively defeat Marquez and Bradley then what was he really going to do with the great mayweather. Pacquiao will continue to fight regardless if he wins or loses.Posted April 8, 2014 2:04 pm
Same can be said about Pac. I like the way people say he just rushed in and got careless against Marquez when he got KOd but if you rewatch the KO you will see Pac actually feint before coming in with a punch, only problem is Marquez did not flinch on the feint and Pac came in to throw a punch and Marquez countered perfectly. So all this garbage about Pac rushing in is false.Posted April 8, 2014 1:28 pm

Mayweather’s own town transforms into Manny Pacquiao land. The iconic legend brings in fans from all over the world. The stars are out, world leaders and dignitaries all come out to see arguably the greatest fighter of all time. The only 8 time division boxing champion ever. Manny Pacquiao is coming, and half the world is coming along with him. The blazing hand speed, the graceful, and artistic movement and the destructive power will all be present when Manny Pacquiao steps into that boxing ring on Saturday night. My bags are packed, my Manny Pacquiao attire is neatly pressed, and we’re set to go. Boxing needs Manny Pacquiao more than fish need water. Opening Day for Major League Baseball is dwarfed by the news of Manny Pacquiao arriving in Las Vegas. Imagine Manny coming out to ring in his patented colors of his homeland, the beautiful head band, the bounce in his legs and the million dollar smile as the house erupts with passion and emotions. The crowd cheering “Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny”. And I will be the one fan in the crowd leading that chant. Never again will there be this kind of excitement in any event. You will have missed a part of life if you’re not glued to your tv set or at the live event. Manny Pacquiao is making his triumphant return to glory. He will turn back the hands of time and begin his second reign as P4P King of the ring. Don’t blink because something special will happen before round 4 or no later than round 9. Trust me on this, Manny Pacquiao is simply the best ever. That was hard to say because that encompasses a lot of great fighters, but Manny is the best!Posted April 8, 2014 1:04 pm

I dont see the point in bradley fighting pac again if he wins this rematch. He will only win if it is decisive and then he has two in his pocket to pac’s none. it wont be like JMM-Pacquiao when they had controversial decisions consecutively. There is one possibly bad decision which they are (hopefully) going to find out who the better fighter is. Please no rematch once Bradley wins. I think bradley is right about Pacquiao. He’s missing that something extra and its not because of his age. its going to be a close fight this time.Posted April 8, 2014 10:50 am

Good post Hecdog! I predict a mid fight tko for Manny. I like Bradley but i feel MP has more at stake and will really go for it in this match.Posted April 8, 2014 9:46 am
i believe that the writing is on the wall concerning mr. pacquiao. i just have a feeling that the man is just not what he was. tim brings his socks this time. i may be wrong,and that’s o.k.,but i think pacquiao may even get stopped in this one.Posted April 8, 2014 9:00 am

Some post fight hype about Manny retiring if he loses, I simply don’t see it as it wasn’t that long ago people were saying he was broke and he like other boxing greats Holyfield, Tyson, Chavez Sr. Leonard etc etc wasl always able to get a fight and with it a decent paycheck.. I don’t see PACKMAN going anywhere regardless if he wins or losesPosted April 8, 2014 8:42 am
There are time you can believe Roach. And this is one of those times.
There are no more geriatrics willing to dehydrate to near-death around.
Pac hype is over.Posted April 8, 2014 8:21 am
“Might” need to retire? I would say that is a foregone conclusion.Posted April 8, 2014 8:09 am

The iconic legend that is Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao will be returning to the boxing ring in again another highly anticipated fight on April 12, 1014. The world has this fight marked on the calendar. This is a man that started his boxing career as a fly weight in 1995 and has climbed three divisions as a squirrel climbs a tree effortlessly and with precision. I constantly am amazed at what Emmanuel “Manny” Dapidran Pacquiao has accomplished in a life that started out with hopelessness all while selling donuts and bread on the streets to make enough money for him and his family to eat. His father left while Manny was small only to come back years later for a few hours and eat his pet dog. A third world country is nothing like life in the United States. There is poverty, sickness and desperation. A life that takes more than it gives. Manny Pacquiao is a role model and example for those that see no hope in their lives. Put yourself in his situation and imagine what it would be like to live on the street, fighting against older, stronger, hungry men in back alley brawls to earn two dollars or less. Fast forward to today and see what Manny Pacquiao has attained since his horrific and painful childhood. Fighter of The Decade, 8 division World Boxing Championships, Mega Star of the Boxing Ring, The Silver Screen and Platinum Music hit Songs, Cover of TIME Magazine, Model, Cover Of GQ Magazine, Congressman, 2008 Flag barer for 2008 Olympic Games in Beijiing, helper of the poor and a Man Of God that wears his faith on his sleeves. A boxer that carries himself with humility, respect and sportsmanship in a sport that is full of greedy dishonest people. Manny’s endorsement opportunities are endless. All of this from a young child that made his first punching bag out of cardboard and stuffed clothes. On April 12, Manny will have his chance to set the record straight and seek his own personal redemption. We all know about the robbery decision given to Timothy Bradley in their first fight. This was an atrocity in the sports world. This was a true injustice to the millions of fans that saw a different fight. Rumor had it that many fans across the world would not go to work protesting this ridiculous decision. Now, Manny can and will make things right. Timothy Bradley, a solid fighter in his own right knew that he had lost. HIs pride and ego wouldn’t let him admit it, but he knew he had lost. He also has the chance to redeem himself, but he won’t. This will be a great fight until the end, which should come by brutal knockout before round 9. Manny Pacquiao will turn back the hands of time and win this fight without question. The world will be a better place. The east coast will see good weather and the west coast will receive the needed rain. Life will be more settled even though a hurricane fighter by the name of Manny Pacquiao came through Las Vegas in a brutal fury on April 12th to destroy another opponent that was living on a false victory. Manny Pacquiao will put it all together on this night. Memories of living under a bridge wrapped up in newspapers will give him the drive to win in spectacular fashion. Manny Pacquiao has no fear. He was born a fighter. He is greatness in the ring.Posted April 8, 2014 3:38 am
Forget Manny getting a payday from the P4P KingPosted April 8, 2014 3:08 am
Get that into your stupid head.Posted April 8, 2014 3:07 am
Lenin said it correct. Floyd would only fight basically if Paq looked ring worn done.Posted April 8, 2014 2:19 am
Pac most be winPosted April 8, 2014 2:04 am

Roach: If I fail at making correct predictions, I might need to retire – That’s more like it. FMJ will definitely watch this fight. If Pacquiao wins convincingly, he will never get a fight with FMJ. If Pac wins but looks tired and old, the fight will be made. If he loses, it’s 50-50 for a fight with FMJ.Posted April 8, 2014 1:49 am
