Canelo vs Angulo: Full Fight - Alfredo Angulo vs Jorge Silva (2012)

Alfredo Angulo faces Canelo Alvarez this Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view. We'll be looking back on some of their recent fights, starting here with Angulo's 2012 win over Jorge Silva.

In 2012, Alfredo Angulo spent much of the year locked up in an ICE Detention Center in California, victim of a broken system. After a year out of the ring, he returned in November 2012, defeating Raul Casarez in one round. But Angulo wanted to get busy and get his career back on track, so he was back one months later to face Jorge Silva, a tough young fighter who had shown some grit against Yoshihiro Kamegai in a previous bout.

Silva figured to be overwhelmed by the hard-hitting Angulo, but the young man again proved he was no easy mark, going 10 rounds in a toe-to-toe war with 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.
