RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif.(AP) Alfredo "Perro'' Angulo stopped Joachim Alcine with one second left in a merciless first round Saturday night, dramatically invigorating his career.
Angulo (19-1, 16 KOs) won his fourth straight fight by stoppage with nearly 3 full minutes of punishment for Alcine, who never recovered after foolishly holding onto Angulo's left glove while Angulo relentlessly pounded him with the right.
Angulo repeatedly staggered Alcine (32-2), the former WBA 154-pound champion from Montreal, before finishing him with several shots to the head right before the bell.
The fight was the co-main event before Timothy Bradley's welterweight matchup with Luis Carlos Abregu at the Agua Caliente Casino near Palm Springs.
