Comments

Highly competitive fight, much closer than the ringside commentators called, and one that Lopez had to really gut out to win.
Much like the similarly Nacho Beristain trained Juan Manuel Marquez’ classics with Pacquiao, Lopez’ punches were often more aesthetically appealing, as they followed greater lengths and wider arcs. However, Alvarez was very adept at blocking (something the commentators DID pick up on) and was very successful landing shorter, less eye catching, but no less effective shots of his own.
Terrific war.
