Report: Alvarez-Thompson Cancelled

Fight World is reporting that the scheduled rematch between BodogFight Welterweight Champion Nick Thompson and Eddie Alvarez for this weekend has been cancelled.

The fight was slated to take place at a BodogFight sponsored Hook N’ Shoot show this weekend at the Evansville Coliseum in Evansville, Indiana. The report states that Thompson will be unable to make the 170 lb required weight limit.

The two fought earlier this year at BodogFight: Clash of the Nations in April where Thompson stopped Alvarez with strikes in the second round of their bout.

Update 6:30 PM: The Fight Network via BodogFight has confirmed that Thompson actually injured his shoulder during training over the weekend and the cancellation has nothing to do with weight cutting.
