Mayweather's years in the ring are filled with unique challenges, complicated wins and plenty of learning experiences that have molded boxing's pound-for-pound king. Mayweather has acquired tools for every situation and, not surprisingly, benefits from a veteran's calm and cunning. Although Alvarez has been boxing nearly his entire life, he hasn't logged as many "air miles." Nor has he faced remotely the same level of competition as his battle-tested opponent. Past lessons may not help him this time around.

Advantage: Mayweather
