CANELO ALVAREZ VS. ALFREDO ANGULO LIVE RESULTS:
Round 1 - Surprisingly aggressive start from Canelo who comes out swinging. High volume of punches from Canelo, who find a clean home for his right cross on multiple occasions. Angulo had a bit of success in the closing moments, but was outgunned here. 10-9 Canelo.
Round 2 - Another big round for Canelo. He keeps managing to land clean with a variety of punches, particularly that right. Canelo added in some nice body work here, controlling the entire round outside of one very brief late flurry. 10-9 Canelo.
Round 3 - Canelo clearly gunning for the KO here. Another round where he keeps up the aggression, landing many shots. Good combos from Canelo too. Angulo had his moments, and is still fighting to stay in this, but Canelo is hurting him. 10-9 Canelo, 30-27 after three.
Round 4 - Each round is now starting to settle into a similar groove of Canelo dominating, Angulo having brief success with 30 seconds or so left, then Canelo stopping that. Angulo continues to get taken apart by the heavy hands of Canelo. 10-9 Canelo.
Round 5 - For the first time, Canelo slows down. He's now picking his shots more carefully, slowing the pace down a bit. Canelo landed some nice combos again, but as the round progressed, Angulo started taking real control. 10-9 Canelo for me, but this is a tough call.
Round 6 - Harder round to call, as Angulo continues the work he started last round in order to close the gap. Again, he took the harder shots overall, but he also started to seem like someone not fighting beyond his level. Canelo 10-9. That's 60-54 on my books through 6.
Round 7 - Angulo continues the process of getting back into the fight, pushing Canelo into the ropes at times. He landed a few shots, but not with the same power as Canelo's combo attack. Angulo is doing more than surviving, but he's still not in control. 10-9 Canelo.
Round 8 - GREAT round! Both men fired up here. Angulo pushed the pace hard to start, with Canelo showing nice Mayweather inspired defense then coming back. By the end, they were just throwing back and forth. Canelo continues to land the more effective punches through it all. 10-9 Canelo
Round 9 - Fantastic defense from Canelo being shown here. Angulo is giving it his all, throwing a lot, but Canelo is really mixing up his defense and is hard to hit. Angulo did land a few nice shots here, but as has been the case all night, Canelo matched those shots then topped them. 10-9 Canelo - I have it a shut-out through 9.
Round 10 - Canelo continues to land and a perfectly clean uppercut rocks Angulo leading referee Tony Weeks to step in and wave it off. Canelo wins by TKO, round 10. Some definite boos for the ending, but Angulo was getting beaten badly all night.
