Photos: Lara Survives Twice To Force Angulo TKO Win

Home Depot Center, Carson, California - Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12KOs) got off the deck, twice, and stopped Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) in the tenth round to win the vacant interim-WBA junior middleweight title. Lara was down in the fourth and the ninth rounds. During the tenth round, Lara landed a hard combination of punches that caught Angulo right on his eye, breaking his orbital bone - and then the Mexican slugger was in a lot of pain and started walking back to his corner in the middle of the action - and at that point the referee quickly waved off the fight and the doctors rushed the ring. At the time of the stoppage, Lara was ahead 85-84 on two cards and Angulo up 86-83 on the third. Photos by Tom Hogan/Hoganphotos & Esther Lin

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0;13460392]Wikipedia says that Angulo was living in the US with an expired workers visa. [B]While a year long jail time[/B] does seem excessive, I do know that US immigration takes a very strong no-tolerance stance on foreign visitors overstaying their…
