Between Shane Mosley, Carlos Baldomir, Kermit Cintron, Lovemore Ndou and Alfonso Gomez, Alvarez had to maneuver through a wide array of styles, technical approaches and other tricks. Opportunities to face foes from such varied schools of boxing have built in him a large repertoire of responses. He has the background to react to changes in an opponent's style, while Trout simply hasn't faced enough competition (particularly at the higher level), to consider this to be a strength in this matchup.

Advantage: Alvarez
