Way off? Abril, Mayweather, Toney, Hopkins, whatever. They all use the same techniques in their own way. When inside they use their shoulder, elbow, right arm etc. It worked for Abril because that's how he fights and that's his style. That's what he good at.
What Avlarado did would have been like Abril going in against Rios and trying to out brawl him. Using something that worked against him. Luckily Abril wasn't that stupid.
