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.
