Although hardly much older than a teenager, Alvarez already has lived an athletic lifetime devoted to boxing. He comes from a family of fighters, was a world titlist at age 20 and currently has 42 professional fights under his belt. Additionally, he has faced a few grizzled champions who, despite failing to put up a great fight, did bring a level of know-how into the ring that he had a chance to learn from. Trout arrived to boxing later in life, and his growth process hasn't been expedited by as many ring professors as has that of Canelo.

Advantage: Alvarez
