Biography
Edward, the son of Louis and Lillian Alvarez, grew up in Kensington, Philadelphia and is of Puerto Rican and Irish descent. He started boxing at Front Street Gym at the age of eight under his father and Frank Kubach. He went to Northeast Catholic High School, excelling and becoming a varsity letterman in football, wrestling and track. Despite receiving partial scholarship offers to wrestle in various colleges after graduating in 2001, he decided to pursue a career in mixed martial arts. Eddie has a younger brother, Albert, who is a former mixed martial artist.
Fighter Trivia
Eddie married his high school sweetheart, Jamie, in 2008, and they have three sons and a daughter. Alvarez utilized his financial success to move his family out of Kensington and into Northeast Philadelphia following the birth of his first son, Eddie Jr. Alvarez made two appearances on the television show Bully Beatdown on MTV, where he knocked out both of his opponents.
