James Kirkland Stops Alfredo Angulo in a Classic 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 what many can call a first round for the ages, Kirkland started by pushing Angulo back in the corner, and then Angulo dropped him hard with a right hand in the first thirty seconds. Angulo was close to putting Kirkland away, but he punched himself out and then Kirkland started battering him with a massive amount of power shots to drop Angulo down hard against the ropes. Angulo made it up and nearly got put away himself before the bell saved him.

The second round was more of a war, but it was Kirkland who was getting the better of the action. The trend continued in the third round with Kirkland getting the better of the their exchanges and hurting Angulo with hard power punches. The same thing was happening in the next couple of rounds, with Kirkland pouring it on in the sixth, as he trapped Angulo against the ropes, to force the referee to stop the contest.

The reason why I would bet on Pac against Mayweather is because of that power. He is fast enough to catch Floyd and we have seen Floyd get hit in his last couple fights. Imagine if Pac catches him? It…
