HBO2 to replay Pacquiao-Marquez III, Rios-Alvarado I


Over consecutive nights on Nov. 15 and 16, HBO 2 will air Manny Pacquiao’s majority-decision victory over Juan Manuel Marquez in their third bout from November of 2011, and Brandon Rios‘s seventh-round stoppage over Mike Alvarado from October of 2012.

The replays will be shown on Friday at 11 p.m. ET/PT, and on Saturday at 11:45 ET/P in advance of the Pacquiao-Rios 147-pound clash in Macau on Nov. 23.

Pacquiao has lost two straight, by disputed split decision to current WBO welterweight beltholder Tim Bradley in June of 2012, and by sixth-round stoppage in December to Marquez, against whom Pacquiao is 2-1-1. Rios, meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous-decision loss to Alvarado.
