Álvarez had 20 amateur bouts.

In his first 19 months as a professional, he knocked out 11 of his 13 opponents. However, it was claimed in 2013 that Álvarez had fought 10 more times in that period, winning all 10 by knock-out. These fights (all in small venues) were so badly documented that it was alleged not worth the trouble to attempt to have the record corrected.

Álvarez’ third official bout was a win over Miguel Vázquez on January 20, 2006 at his home town of Guadalajara, Jalisco. On June 28, 2008, Álvarez beat Miguel Vázquez again in a rematch. He also made history that night when all of his six brothers fought on the same night.
