Al Bernstein is back with his latest video keys to victory, this time, taking a look at the Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Mike Alvarado bout. Plus, we have details on the Marquez vs. Alvarado weigh-in, which will be open to the public this Friday in Los Angeles.
Bernstein believes that Alvarado needs to throw combinations, avoid being too frenetic and stick to his plan, and also to keep himself from throwing lazy jabs, and offering Marquez a great counter opportunity. For Marquez, it’s all in a series of things to accomplish, first making him get off first, then, countering effectively, and when you do, landing the big right hand.
