Four-division world champion and Mexican icon Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez and former world junior welterweight champion “Mile High” Mike Alvarado hosted a news conference Wednesday announcing their 12-round welterweight rumble and the return of boxing to the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Mike Alvarado: “I want to thank Juan Manuel for the opportunity. Retiring a legend is gonna be huge!”

Juan Manuel Marquez: “I need to prepare very well because Alvarado is a strong fighter. It’s a big challenge. I’m very happy to fight in the place where I began my career. On May 17, the fans will see a great fight!”

Promoter Bob Arum announced that tickets go on sale April 1 and any $150 and $75 ticket purchased on April 1 between noon and 4PM will get an accompanying ticket free. “Not an April Fools Joke, it’s real,” said the Hall of Famer.
