Photos: Kirkland and Angulo Wage a War in Cancun

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. Photos by Robert Fernandez/Hoganphotos and Al. Salazar Quequi

Going into this fight I thought Angulo was the more technically sound fighter but Kirkland stepped up his game and thoroughly dominated Angulo for the duration of the fight. Now I know all of Angulo's fans,ie...so-called Hispanics(Mestizos)will make endless excuses…
