And it's especially irrelevant in this case as the comp that Jr. and Alvarez have fought are not that far off from each other.
I know plenty about boxing. Enough to know that level of competition can drastically affect how you look in the ring. One of the marquee assets a technically-proficient fighter can possess is the ability to adapt, especially when having one of his bigger tools neutralized. You're not gonna see that against tomato cans. Watching Chavez progress and maneuver the way he has, especially in his last three fights against very formidable opponents, says alot about his ring savvy. He doesn't need to have lightning hand & foot speed to be technically sound.

That was my point in bringing up Hamed. I never said Hamed was Sugar Ray Leonard.
