This fight will serve as a barometer that determines whether Alvarez needs a different corner to advance further in his career. After his loss to Mayweather in September, the father and son team of Chepo and Eddy Reynoso left the suspicion that maybe they lacked the status necessary to help Alvarez meet his biggest challenges. Angulo, however, has a coach in his corner, Virgil Hunger, with proven ability thanks to the work he has done with the likes of Andre Ward and Amir Khan. If there's anyone who can have a secret surprise in store for Alvarez, it's Hunter.

Advantage: Angulo
