Marquez vs Alvarado live stream online of weigh-in (May 16, 2014)

Juan Manuel Marquez and Mike Alvarado hit the scales this evening for tomorrow night's HBO World Championship Boxing main event in Los Angeles.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Today at 6:00 pm EDT from Los Angeles, BLH will have a live stream of the Marquez vs Alvarado weigh-in ahead of tomorrow night's HBO World Championship Boxing fight, as well as immediate results of the weigh-in event posted just after it's over.

Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KO) is looking to rebound from a loss in this fight, as is Mike Alvarado (34-2, 23 KO), as they meet in what figures to be an all-action contest, with the winner most likely facing Manny Pacquiao later this year on HBO pay-per-view.

Marquez, 40, last fought in October 2013, losing a competitive decision to then-WBO welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley. The 33-year-old Alvarado also fought that month, losing his WBO junior welterweight title in a slugfest that turned into a beatdown against Ruslan Provodnikov.

Tomorrow night's bout has a catchweight limit of 143 pounds, with Alvarado leaving the 140-pound division behind, and Marquez imposing a lower limit than the welterweight standard 147, mostly because he can, so why not, basically.
