Angulo has knocked out 72 percent of his opponents, compared to 68 percent for Alvarez, and both are strong for their weight class. However, there's a difference in the way each draws his respective punching power. Canelo employs a more cerebral style and waits for his opponent's failure to land the knockout punch. Angulo is more instinctive and aggressive, and draws all of his power from the pressure he applies. And statistics confirm that he has what it takes.

Advantage: Angulo
