Oh, and Rios will stop Alvarado before Alvarado ever stops him. It's pretty clear who the most durable out the two is.

Whoever knocks out Rios has my respect. That damn chin is iron.

Nahh, it's a sign that Rios has to improve his ****ing defense. He was getting cracked directly on the chin with some of those Alvarado bombs.

Rios is ALWAYS one fight away from a KO loss and he manages to escape anyway.

Theres nothing wrong with his chin, its his heart thats the problem

He was very upset about his first loss and as the fight got into the later stages it looked like he was giving up a little bit, thats how Alvarado was able to pull away on the scorecards (as well as moving instead of staying in front of Rios)

He's been stunned many times before, the thing is he recovers very quickly, almost instantly.

Hell no. He stood up to hundreds of punches in a war. That confirms his chin, which was certified iron after the first 4 rounds of the Acosta fight.

both times he has been dropped was from a body shot

Rios wasn't in nearly as good a shape as he was for the first fight. Came in heavy and after a few rounds had no snap on his punches. He needs to not blow up between camps. Being able to take a punch is directly related to conditioning.

He looked really drained going into the fight. Few things wreck chins like dehydration. Plus, Alvarado has legitimate power in his right hand, and he was landing flush.
