Canelo vs Angulo: Full fight - Angulo vs Lara, 2013

Today we look back at some of the recent fights from Alfredo Angulo and Canelo Alvarez. In this fight from 2013, Angulo was stopped by Erislandy Lara, but gave one of the trickiest fighters in the division plenty of trouble along the way.

Alfredo Angulo, like Canelo Alvarez, comes in off of a loss for their Showtime pay-per-view bout on Saturday night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Like Canelo, Angulo was outboxed by one of the best in the game. Unlike Canelo, Angulo was stopped late in the fight.

Prior to the loss, though, Angulo had given Erislandy Lara all he could handle, putting the tricky Cuban southpaw on the canvas in rounds four and nine. At the time of the stoppage in round 10, Angulo was up 86-83 on one card, and down 85-84 on the other two. It was a close battle with Angulo's relentlessness meeting Lara's craft, a matchup that made for an exciting Erislandy Lara fight, which is not an easy thing to find.
