Alfredo Angulo Knocks Out Raines, First Win Since 2012

StubHub Center, Carson, California - Now fighting as a middleweight (although he failed to make weight on Friday),  Alfredo Angulo (23-5, 19KOs) knocked out Delray Raines (19-11-1, 14KOs) in the fifth round.

Raines had some early moments and made it competitive in the first three rounds, but quickly faded. In the fourth round, Raines went down from a series of hard punches to the head and body. During the fifth, Angulo dropped Raines for the second time with a barrage of shots. A moment later a very hard right to the chin dropped Raines to his knees and referee Jack Reiss waved off the fight.

It was the first victory for Angulo since December of 2012. in one of his better performances, Angulo was stopped in ten rounds by Erislandy Lara - but not before he was able to drop the talented Cuban fighter two times.

Nine months later Angulo was stopped in ten rounds by Mexican super Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Six months later, in what was billed as a safe fight, Angulo was dropped in the second and lost a ten round unanimous decision to James De La Rosa.

For Raines, it was only his second fight since 2011.

No matter how slow and limited Angulo may be, he is an exciting fighter to watch and always gives it his all(even if at this point it's not much). I just hope he makes the best decisions for his career.…

I liked it. The opponent was a giant for that weight class and was surprisingly game, considering his record. Angulo got warmed up and took him out. Would be fickle to act as if it wasn't a good fight and…
