FOX Sports 1 - Hunter vs Alvarado: Live streaming results and round by round coverage (January 20, 2015)

Eric Hunter meets Rene Alvarado in the main event of a Philadelphia card that will also celebrate Bernard Hopkins' 50th birthday.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight at 8:00 pm EST on FOX Sports 1, Golden Boy Promotions presents a doubleheader of in-ring action, as well as a celebration of the 50th birthday of living and still fighting legend Bernard Hopkins.

In the main event, Philadelphia's Eric "The Outlaw" Hunter (19-3, 10 KO) takes on Rene Alvarado (21-3, 14 KO) in a 10-round super featherweight fight. Hunter, 28, has sort of betrayed his own record with a pair of DQ losses (the other was a six-round split decision), the last coming in September 2013 against Mike Oliver. Alvarado, 25, was looking good after a stoppage win over Robinson Castellanos in February of last year, before an upset loss to a revitalized Rocky Juarez in May. He last fought in October, beating Juan Pablo Sanchez in Mexico.

In the co-feature, Michael "The Artist" Perez (21-1-2, 10 KO) faces Miguel Acosta (29-7-2, 23 KO) in a 10-round junior welterweight fight. Perez, 24, was stopped by Omar Figueroa in January 2012, and has gone 6-0-1 since then. Acosta, 36, is a former lightweight titlist who has not fought since May 2013. He's lost three in a row and four of his last five, and hasn't beaten an opponent with a winning record since 2010.
