Allan Green Six Pounds Over For Eleider Alvarez Bout

By Luke Furman

At today's weigh-in, light heavyweight contender Allan Green (32-4, 22KOs) was six pounds over the contract limit of 180-pounds for tomorrow night's fight with undefeated prospect Eleider Alvarez (12-0, 8KOs) at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut. 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.

Former featherweight champion Billy Dib will be featured on the show against battle tested Mike Oliver.

So he was going to make $15,000, now $12,000. Hmmm... Yeah he needs to retire.
