Alvarado isn't that skilled, probably because of lack of training
hours. On several occasions, he hurt Rios, only to miss by *a
decimeter* on his followup punch!
Rios has the thug, street fighter talent (and a good chin and
stamina), he is fearless, but he has very moderate athletic talent. I
agree he was cutting the ring, however, the best guy I ever saw do
this - Gennadiy Golovkin - if you compare his movements and boxing
stance while doing so, with those of Rios - well, it is like comparing
fluid to a brick wall.
It is actually strange to think Rios has that kind of amateur record,
almost up there with the Cubans! But I guess, if you just fight the
way you always fight, fight after fight - and I suspect that is his
case - it doesn't matter how much you do it, you'll still look more or
less bad, if that's the way you looked when you started it. As a
person, Rios seems like a good kid though. Of course, I hope both he
and Alvarado are OK!
And... for the second time in a row, I thought the undercard fight was
much better! And during that fight, the crowd was booing! What's going
