If we wanted to give this category another name, we'd call it "The ability to win fights and look good," which is precisely what Alvarez does. To his detractors, he may be consistently boring, consistently dull or consistently unskilled. But he wins fights and dominates his opponents, one after another. You have to go back as far as 2008 to find a points victory that Canelo took by fewer than eight or nine points on the scorecards. Lopez comes nowhere near measuring up in this category.

Advantage: Alvarez
