Acelino Freitas Beats Down Michael Oliveira For KO Win

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Hotel & Casino Conrad, Punta del Este, Uruguay - Former champion Acelino "Popo" Freitas (39-2, 33KOs), in his first fight since April 2007, which took place at 135-pounds, returned as a junior middleweight and knocked out previously undefeated Michael Oliveira (17-1, 12KOs) in the ninth round.

Freitas, 36-years-old, took the fight to Oliveira from the start and punished him. Freitas scored a knockdown in the third, outclassed and beat up Oliveira in the following rounds and then scored two more knockdowns in the ninth round for a spectacular knockout victory.

Oliveira had baited Freitas, now a political figure, for a long time. Freitas finally accepted his challenge a few months ago. After several postponements and various delays, Freitas turned back the clock when the two of them entered the ring.

Freitas looked surprisingly good given the circumstances of weight jump and layoff but he's not going to beat anyone relevant However good to see him reaffirm his status in Brasil and the boxing world

[QUOTE=richardt;12201977]I watched more of the fight just now and Frietas' reflexes and timimg were superb. If he fights Mallinaggi, he wins, period. He still has that killer instinct and swarming style that left him in the last part of his…
