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.
Very true. I couldn't believe how Alvarado could just not make adjustments as he kept getting tagged with some of the same bombs. And instead of fighting from a distance where he was looking good, he kept getting inside with Rios which I thought was foolish. It was actually looking like Alvarado was taking control of the fight before Rios just started throwing and more importantly landing some huge shots. I personally feel that Alvarado fought a dumb fight and could have won had he not tried to engage in such a war. But hey, doesn't matter I guess, we got a great fight out of it.
