Another easy pick. Add to the list of Alvarez's victims mentioned in the previous category the likes of Shane Mosley, Alfonso Gomez, Lovemore N'Dou and other experienced contenders whom Alvarez has dominated without much trouble. Lopez's most experienced opponents were young, untested fighters on the rise (Jessie Vargas, Mike Dallas Jr.), with Ortiz being the only outstanding name on his résumé. One impressive upset over a name opponent doesn't cut it here.

Advantage: Alvarez
