Alfredo Angulo Overpowers Munoz For TKO Win

By Rick Reeno

Staples Center, Los Angeles, California - Middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo (24-5, 20KOs) continued his streak of wins, as his tries to rebuild his career, with a fifth round stoppage of Hector Munoz (22-16-1, 14KOs), who now lost seven of his last ten fights since 2013.

Munoz was cut bad around the right eye in the fourth and eventually went down in the fifth from an accumulation of punches. His corner stopped the fight at the end of the fifth round.

The popular Mexican fighter is looking to have a few more confidence builders before stepping up to more serious competition. He's going to need them because his defense was still very shaky against Munoz, who landed often enough where a higher caliber of opponent could have did damage. It was textbook Angulo for the most part, walking straight in with both hand swinging with deadly purpose.

Angulo snapped a three fight losing streak in June with a fifth round knockout of Delray Raines. Prior to that victory, he lost fights to James De La Rosa, Saul Alvarez and Erislandy Lara.

Same old Angulo, just not as good. Amazing how quick his decline was. I did like his jab tonight and the 1-2 looked good, nice and sharp, but right opponent in front of him. Angulo took a lot of shots…

He was finished after the Kirkland beatdown, then Canelo finished off what was left.
