Canelo Alvarez puts his name in the equation for another title shot.
Canelo Alvarez turned things around Saturday night against the perfect opponent in Alfredo Angulo, stopping his Mexican countryman in the 10th round of a brutally one-sided fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Facing pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their record-breaking fight in September, Alvarez was was taken to school in their junior middleweight unification fight.
But Mayweather is the best fighter on the planet with speed and one of the best defenses in boxing history.
Angulo, however, is the opposite — a tough brawler lacking in defense and speed.
Alvarez took advantage, big time, dishing out a brutal beating to Angulo, as the fight was stopped by the referee with 47 seconds left in the 10th round before a raucous crowd of 14,610.
