Post-fight Analysis: Canelo wins by 10th round stoppage after controlled dismantling of Angulo

Canelo Alvarez dominated eight of the first nine rounds, proving that he's still a force in boxing and not to be underestimated. As he bossed Angulo around the ring the fight looked like it could only go in one direction, and 47 seconds into the tenth, the referee stopped the fight following a stinging left uppercut.

The stoppage will surprise many, who will argue that Perro Angulo wasn't in any immediate danger, even if he did look defeated. There isn't any question of the direction the fight was heading however, it being only a matter of time for the firey Canelo, who successfully has his career back on track after a first career loss to Mayweather in September 2013.
