“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio is back this week with host Jenna J to cover all the recent fights and news going on in boxing. In this episode I will discuss Juan Manuel Marquez’ victory over Mike Alvarado this past Saturday on HBO Boxing. The forty year old Marquez put on one of the best displays of his career and he outclassed the larger Alvarado over 12 rounds to set himself up as the mandatory challenger for the WBO welterweight title currently held by Manny Pacquiao. I will be talking about the future of Juan Manuel Marquez as well as the suspicions that some fans have regarding his performance level at his age.
Also on the show I will be previewing the upcoming Friday Night Fights Boxino finals which are set to take place this Friday on ESPN. Lastly, I will be talking about the upcoming SHOWTIME event which will feature the return of WBC light heavyweight champion, Adonis Stevenson as he fights Andrzej Fonfara, as well as a middleweight fight between David Lemieux and Fernando Guerrero.
