Plus we may just see Alvarado doing some shoulder rolls pols

Alvarado has a better Jab than Rios and works behind it better. Yes, they both use uppercuts, but Alvarado fires his from the outside and inside where Rios only uses his on the inside.

If Rios can bury his head in Alvarado's chest and continuously work him on the inside, he could break down his bigger and stronger opponent. But I really do think Mike has more tools to keep Brandon at a favorable distance enough times to get some respect, eventually TKOing him.

I can't decide.

At first I thought Alvarado then after some consideration I thought Rios
Now I'm just stuck in the middle again...

After the weigh in i'll probaly be hyped for Alvarado...

I would then say by round 3 i'd know who is going to win.. but in a fight like this.. it's not over till it's over.

Going to be a great fight, hopefully a war that Rios will win and silence a few critics. Im not too bothered either way as long as its a war!!

Rios by late TKO would be my prediction.

Rios is the better combination puncher, how he deals with mike's size and strength will be the key here.

Should be good. Rios thrives on opponents that stay in front of him. Never saw Alvarado.

Rios can feast on the inside with hooks and uppercuts. At a collapsed range, where the fight is figured to be contested at, Rios is the superior fighter.
