Khan vs Molina results: Alfredo Angulo outpoints Jorge Silva in toe-to-toe war

Jeff Gross

Alfredo Angulo got some rounds tonight, brawling with a game and determined Jorge Silva in a ten-round win in Los Angeles.

Alfredo Angulo returned to the ring last month and scored a one-round knockout. Tonight, he had to work a lot harder, going a hard ten rounds with Jorge Silva on the Khan-Molina undercard, winning by unanimous decision in a toe-to-toe battle.

All three official scorecard were 97-93 for Angulo. BLH also had it 97-93 for Angulo.

Angulo (22-2, 18 KO) and Silva (19-3-2, 15 KO) surpassed all expectations (or at the very least, the vast majority of expectations) with a grueling exchange of power shots from the first round on. Angulo, 30, seemed to think in the first round that he might be able to catch his young foe with something big and put the fear of God or what have you into him, but in response to Angulo's first rush, Silva dug his feet into the canvas and started throwing bombs back at the favored man, impressing upon Angulo quickly that he was here for a fight, and that he'd come to win.

Silva, 20, and Angulo went back-and-forth for a while, but in the middle rounds, it seemed Angulo's size and power shots started to really wear on Silva, and Angulo took control of the fight, though he was being hit with good shots in return until the very end.

Silva has raised his stock substantially with this loss, even more than after a very exciting draw in October with Yoshihiro Kamegai, which aired on a smaller televised show. He's a young man with a lot of grit, some decent power, and talent that can be molded. If nothing else, he's going to be a hell of a TV fighter for a while.

As for Angulo, he could be in something big next time out, or take another fight to keep getting himself back to where he was before this year. Either way, he's must-see TV, and everyone knows it.
