Prediction,

Good for Mike Alvarado that he is still fighting, making a living, and not getting beaten up and hurt anymore.

This isn't a bad fight for a fight which isn't in the top 2 bouts of the bill. This should be competitive, two fighters with nothing to lose, against each other, they can make a fight of it, it should be an entertaining scrap.

Alvarado is 37, Martinez is 27, so a massive age advantage for Martinez, and Alvarado is not young for his age at all.

Although age is very important in boxing, sometimes an old fighter still has enough to beat a young fighter who is so far down in levels, and I think this is the case in this fight, because although Alvarado was never Crawford, Lomachenko, he has taken a couple of beatings, looked terrible in a couple of world level fights (or definitely near world level), and is 37, Alvarado is facing an opponent with a record of 18-14, bad record, and Martinez, with just the two title fights in 33 bouts, most of his fights have been 8 rounders or less, he's been stopped 9 times himself, so I think it is highky likely Alvarado is still good enough to beat a fighter as limited as Martinez.

Martinez's two title fights were Inter-Continental title fights, to his credit, they were scheduled for 12 rounds, and he did fight Lucas Matthysse and Marcos Maidana, but Chino knocked him out in 3, and Matthysse, stopping him in 6. Martinez has lost shutout 6 round UDs to Alex Saucedo and Arnold Barboza, he has lost 7 of his last 10, and he is coming off a stoppage loss.

Alvarado, since 3 bad defeats in a row (one of them maybe the finish of him, the other 2, very one sided defeats, he looked like a shot fighter), has fought 3 times, win all 3 of them, done well in his last 2 fights, they weren't good opponents, but I think they might have been as good as Martinez, and Alvarado, at this point, should be capable now of pretty much what he has been capable of over the past year or two, and at this really demoted level for him, it doesn't matter as much that (as we saw against Marquez and Rios) he can't compete at world level anymore.

History suggests Alvarado should beat Martinez with no trouble, but a 10 year age advantage (27/37) is always good for a fighter's chances of winning, only, a young fighter who isn't conditioned and prepared so well, against an old fighter who has trained harder, might be partially nullifying his age advantage, that might not be the case, but if Alvarado is simply still a level above Martinez, better in almost every aspect, the age won't matter nearly as much, and I think Alvarado wins, but the age advantage makes the fight interesting, gives Martinez a chance.

I think this will be competitive, it will be a good fight, but Alvarado will win, I think by late stoppage.
