Let's make this clear: Neither of these fighters would win anyone's versatility award. We've seen plenty of more well-rounded fighters than Lopez. But when compared to Canelo, well ... there is no comparison. Great defensive skills, a respectable arsenal of punches and a few trademark combinations make Lopez a solid all-around fighter who, despite his limitations, offers much more variety than the hard-charging Alvarez and his approach, which amounts to one-twos with an occasional hook.

Advantage: Lopez
