Alvarez isn't terribly fast, though he puts good acceleration on his punches. If he finds space and his opponent allows him to, Canelo can throw a triple combination in a hurry, but always in a telegraphed and predictable style. Trout is the faster fighter -- explosive, sneaky and able to unleash punches from all angles under any circumstance. He uses his jab effectively and throws punches in flurries.

Advantage: Trout
