Mexican icon Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez and former jr welterweight champion “Mile High” Mike Alvarado faced off today at the final press conference for their HBO-televised showdown on Saturday as boxing returns to the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California.

Mike Alvarado: I trained hard. I’m ready for this fight. Being in training camp this time was great. I excluded myself, I did a lot of soul-searching for this fight. I know it’s going to be a great fight. I thank Juan Manuel for giving me this honor to fight and to prove myself and show I belong on this stage, this level of fighting.

Juan Manuel Marquez: I feel excited to fight again in this historic building. I see a lot of old faces. A lot of people know I don’t talk outside the ring, I do my job in the ring. For this fight I have three points in my mind. 1) Mike Alvarado is a strong fighter, he’s a great fighter and I have a tough fight. 2) I prepared myself very hard for this fight because this fight will be a war. 3) The people will see a great, great fight because Mike Alvarado wants to win the fight, I want to win the fight. This fight will be a war!
