Angulo looks like a killer, and Lara is a cubian, they have always done well in the Olympics and are definitely known for there technique.
Angulo’s record is:
won 22 (KO 18) + lost 2 (KO 1) + drawn 0 = 25
Lara’s record is:
won 17 (KO 11) + lost 1 (KO 0) + drawn 2 = 21
There was no clear favourite for me when this fight was draw. Although Angulo, was known to have knock out power. But for me it’s always the boxer for me, and that’s what Erislandy Lara showed here.
Angulo had only been down once before this bout. The fight started in an engaging way. Angulo was game, being the most experienced fighter at the time of this fight.
Both evenly matched where age is concerned, but Laras left hand and technique prevails in this one. That cubian movement was very apparent here, although Angulo was punching, Lara was very elusive.
Lara gets dropped in the 4th round for the first time….!
Great fight, from two warriors….
