KHAN, WILDER AND ANGULO VICTORIOUS ON SHOWTIME
By G. Leon
Alfredo Angulo W10 Jorge Silva: Alfredo Angulo outslugged Jorge Silva over ten action-packed rounds in the opening bout of Showtime's triple header from Los Angeles. Silva, just twenty years old and a natural welterweight, was in trouble early in the first round but responded with a counter right hand that staggered Angulo, a natural junior middleweight. After winning the first round, Silva dropped four consecutive frames to Angulo. Silva responded strongly in the next two rounds, making it a competitive bout going into the eighth. However Angulo's strength showed down the stretch as he won the final three rounds. Boxingtalk.com's and all three official scorecards read 97-93.
Deontay Wilder KO3 Kelvin Price: After eight minutes of some of the sloppiest heavyweight boxing you'll ever see, Deontay Wilder landed a devastating right hand that ended Kelvin Price's night at the :51 mark of round three. Wilder keeps his career-spannning knockout streak intact through 26 bouts, while Price, a 37 year-old relative novice, suffers his first career loss.
Amir Khan TKO10 Carlos Molina: Amir Khan dominated the game but overmatched Carlos Molina over ten one sided rounds. Molina (not the better-known 154-pound contender with the same name) was cut early and try as he might, was unable to find an answer to Khan's superior speed and overall boxing ability. Molina's corner stopped the fight after round ten. Boxingtalk had the fight a shutout at the time of the stoppage. source: showtime
