    Why Don't Y'all Like Mike Alvarado More?

    I've read several uncomplimentary comments pertaining to 'Mile High' Mike Alvarado on here, and I guess I don't get it. Why don't you guys like/admire him more? He's been in FOTY candidates year after year, has shown the heart of a champion, is as brave as they come, and last fight even showed he can box a bit if he needs to to win. Of course I realize he doesn't have the flash or finesse of some elite fighters, but still, hasn't he won you over? If not, why not? (Maybe it's me that's got a blind spot for my '303' homeboy.)

    I appreciate his guts and ability to change his fight plan on the fly. Oh... and his chin. Who's he fighting next and when?

    Thanks, Bucket, I will. Fight's taking place less than ten minutes from my house. A little worried for both men. We're getting ready for it:

    I like Alvarado and respect his mental fortitude, especially after his come from behind win against Prescott. His boxing ability is okay, needs improvement but I enjoy watching him

    Okay, well maybe I was wrong, then. Seemed he wasn't much-appreciated in these parts, but posters are contradicting this. Good.
