Eleider Alvarez KOs Michael Seals
Nearly a year after his last fight, which saw him drop the WBO light heavyweight title back to Sergey Kovalev after upsetting him in August 2018, Eleider Alvarez was able to put away Michael Seals in the seventh round.
The fight headlined a Top Rank Boxing card at the Turning Stone Casino and Resort in Verona, New York.
The fight started quiet, with each man reading and feeling out the other and unwilling to take big chances. Alvarez usually stayed on the outside and worked from the range, which seemed to be doing the job.
Seals connected better in the fourth round, but Alvarez briefly rocked Seals in the following round.
After working his jab in the sixth, Alvarez only needed a sole right hand to drop Seals down and out in the seventh round to score the victory.
