Top Rank Visits ChiTown For Friday Fights – Bob Arum and Top Rank are in Chicago at the UIC Pavilion this Friday, May 26th for a full night of fights that sees the main events air on Spanish-language UniMas in the United States.
The main event features Mikey Alvarado as the Denver native looks to continue his comeback against Matthew Strode. Alvarado is best remembered for his losses to Ruslan Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez and his trilogy with Brandon Rios but inactivity and personal problems caught up with him at the start of 2015. In 2016 he returned to go 2-0 in a pair of eight round bouts and in this case, Strode is a similar caliber of fighter.
This may just be a case of Arum and Top Rank seeing if Mikey Alvarado has anything left in the tank. The undercard includes popular Irish fighter Michael Conlan in just his second pro fight.
