Indeed! I'm glad he wasn't successful and didn't fight like Abril, Mayweather whoever. It was an amazing fight whatever happened and however they fought though. Pity it didn't last a bit longer, but I don't see how it could have anyway with Alvarado throwing nearly 150 punches in round 5 and well over 100 in he others. That's just insane. He was either going to take Rios out or wear himself out.
