Well Shakur's off to lightweight and given Alvarez's age they'd unlikely cross paths unless Alvarez can move quickly and his body outgrows divisions at an accelerated pace (entirely possible given Alvarez's height and still growing body). WCBS has some decent prospects; some, like Alvarez, still on the cusp of breaking out and others retreads from other B-level promoters. If they're running a closed shop, their fighters will eventually be spinning their wheels and would need to be set free to spread their wings. WCBS is a level below Zanfer and Pueblo in Mexico and of course Matchroom has put stakes down there plus Goldenboy to a degree though they're concentrated in Southern California. A tournament's a good idea to give otherwise little-known fighters a chance to separate themselves. And WCBS provides an outlet for the fighters to be seen. Need a grassroots level to hold the industry up.

At this early stage of his career he's a high wire act with no net. Openly engages in a firefight with no attempt to use his length with a jab. Able to eventually wear down his current level of opposition. Polanco gave him problems - the one judge's absurd shutout scorecard not withstanding. Still got a long runway to develop his skills. Needs a fundamentals-based trainer and have a coachability quality from within to realize his promise. To be honest, he's got extensive amateur experience behind him and doesn't show much in the way of discipline or savvy. And Mexican fighters with privileged status tend to be a bit prima donna-ish. Will he absorb the gym teaching he gets like a sponge? Or be more of a crowd pleaser? He could be built up to a 20-0 or even 30-0 fighter before we really know anything. His development will depend on his receptiveness to his trainers' input. We shall see.
