Photo: Kirkland, Angulo Side By Side After The War

Centro de Cancun, Cancun, Mexico - James Kirkland (30-1, 27KOs) stopped Alfredo Angulo (20-2, 17KOs) in the sixth round of a war. The fight was a WBC junior middleweight eliminator for a mandatory shot at the champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. In a sure fire round of the year, Kirkland was knocked down hard by a big right hand in the first thirty seconds of the first, and survived a wild swinging Angulo for nearly two minutes. Once Angulo punched himself out, Kirkland started battering Angulo, knocked him down, and nearly finished him off by the end of the first bell. After several more rounds of warfare, the referee jumped in as Kirkland punished Angulo against the ropes in the sixth.

Don't get the scoring that had Kirkland up by only 1 point...an authority needs to sit those judges down...

Angulo absorbed way to much punishment in the early rounds. kirkland is a strong dude! 26 Ko's Angulo should have used experience and pick his shots a bit smarter.

Angulo just shot his load in R1 and never got his legs back from the KD. Experience and conditioning could fix that, but with such an aggressive style he'd probably just do the same thing all over again.
