Fernando Montiel Knocks Angky Angkota Out in Nine

By Miguel Rivera

In his first bout since losing an upset decision last November to Victor Terrazas, former three division world champion Fernando Montiel (47-5-2, 37KOs) knocked out Indonesian Angky Angkota (25-7, 14KOs) in the ninth round of a rugged bout in Mazatlan, Sinaloa. Montiel, who turned 33-years-old on Thursday, was hoping to get a birthday knockout.

The knockout came at 2:32 of the ninth round after he dropped Angkota with a hard left hand.

"Tonight I showed that I am back. And to all of the people who believed in me, I want to tell you that we're once again going after the big fights. I hope that later this year I will get a world title opportunity and capture the fourth title that we both desire," Montiel said.

[QUOTE=crold1;11851655]Did he get a belt for it? It was Angky Angkota. Beating him is always a path to a vacant belt isn't it?[/QUOTE] :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
