Green came in at 186-pounds, while Alvarez was two pounds under the limit at 178. Green will have to give up 20% of his purse, $3,000 dollars, to Alvarez. This is not the first time that Green came in overweight for a fight. The fight will be televised as the main event of ESPN's Friday Night Fights.
