Allan Green Withdraws From Eleider Alvarez Contest

By Luke Furman

Accoriding to event matchmaker Sean Gibbons, light heavyweight contender Allan Green (32-4, 22KOs) has withdrawn from tonight's ESPN televised card. On Thursday he was six pounds over the contract limit of 180-pounds for his 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 was ordered to give up 20% of his purse, $3,000 dollars, to Alvarez. Green claimed food poisoning as the reason for his withdrawal.

One of the most unprofessional fighters I have ever seen. And always has a excuse for it too.
