Punching power is the best weapon in Alvarez's arsenal in this matchup. Beyond his youth and superior physical strength, the explosiveness of Canelo's punching has defined his early career. Stats don't lie: Alvarez has won nearly 70 percent of his fights by stoppage. Mayweather, except in a fiasco fight against Victor Ortiz, hasn't finished an opponent since December 2007, when he stopped Ricky Hatton in the 10th round. And although he says he's healthy, Mayweather has had regular hand injuries that have limited what he can put behind his punches.

Advantage: Alvarez
