Alvarez, who has shown significant improvements in his style, can be seen as a more versatile boxer than his opponent. Against Austin Trout, Alvarez displayed new tools, including improved movement defensively with his torso. Perhaps he has added even more for this fight in order to demonstrate his adaptable ability. While Alvarez has shown at times that he can embrace change, Angulo has been quite the opposite, consistently employing a straight-ahead style built upon pressure and aggression.

Advantage: Alvarez
