Regardless of who you favor to pick up the victory, nobody can deny that these two are set to produce fireworks in Utah.

Alvarez previews Perry showdown
“Mike’s tough as hell,” Alvarez said. “A lot of people say, ‘Mike don’t move his head … Mike don’t do this.’ He makes up for a lot of the lack of his stuff with his toughness. His grit, his will – that kind of stuff.
“He cleans it up with that. But when you’re going against another fighter like myself, who has all that, and all of them boxes are checked, then you’re going to have to rely on your skill and your game plan, and something more than just grit and will to get you by.”
“He’s too slow, I’m going to hit him too much,” Alvarez said. “I respect Mike Perry and what he does and his resilience. (But) I’m going to hit him too much, too often, too hard. If he don’t stop fighting, I think the ref’s going to stop him from fighting.”
