Eddie Alvarez shares prediction for tonight’s Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing match

Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez shared his prediction for tonight’s big boxing match between Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather. Paul and Mayweather meet in an exhibition boxing match tonight live from the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. It’s an exhibition boxing match because of the massive weight difference in the fight. At the official weigh-ins on Saturday, Paul came in at 189.5lbs while Mayweather tipped the scales at 155lbs. The weight difference is the reason this fight is not a professional boxing match, but rather an exhibition fight. Because it’s an exhibition, there will be no official judges ringside to declare a winner, but the fighters can still go for a KO.

Alvarez is the former UFC lightweight champion, the former Bellator lightweight champion, and one of the most respected and well-traveled MMA fighters of all time. Although Alvarez is known for his boxing skills inside the cage, he hasn’t been one of the MMA fighters who has tried to make the move to boxing like so many others have. And based on his social media post, it doesn’t seem like Alvarez has any interest in boxing anytime soon, either.

Iuri Lapicus Wants Rematch with Eddie Alvarez

The Team Petrosyan representative isn’t satisfied with the outcome of his clash with “The Underground King” and is looking for a rematch. The latest walkout of Iuri Lapicus (15-1) didn’t go as planned. The 25-year old Moldovan (fighting out of Italy) was scheduled to clash with former Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator MMA lightweight titleholder Eddie Alvarez at One on TNT 1 on April 7. Shortly after the clash started, “The Underground King” took Lapicus down and landed a few strikes that were initially ruled to be behind the head. The referee verbally warned Alvarez to watch his shots. Since Alvarez kept striking in what appeared to be a spot behind Lapicus’ head, the referee disqualified the Philadelphian. The decision was panned on social media by many fans who saw those shots hitting the side, and not the back of Lapicus’ head.
