That's largely the point.
Don't get me wrong, he wasn't trying to do a Broner and be like Mayweather, I'm just using mayweathers name as an example, but he was using a defensive technique that he shouldn't have been.
Whether it was Abril or Mayweather or whoever else doesn't matter, it shouldn't have been tried by Alvarado because he got hit very
easily inside when he was using it. He would have been much better served with both hands up and pushing off Rios to get space.
Defututus: he's the obvious name to recall being the most popular exponent of it today and the most recognisable name.
