Alfredo Angulo vs. Gabriel Rosado: Friday Night Fights Round By Round

It's time for the main event from Buffalo Bill's in Primm, Nevada. Alfredo Angulo attempts to shake off his first career loss against upset-minded Gabriel Rosado in a ten-round junior middleweight fight.

Rosado hails from Philadelphia and is 12-3 with 7 KOs. His most recent win was a split decision victory over Kassim Ouma in April.

Angulo was undefeated and positioned for a breakthrough before stumbling and dropping a decision to Kermit Cintron in May. He is 15-1 with 12 KOs, and all you need to know about his straightforward style is that he racked up 11 straight knockouts before he took on Cintron.

Russell Mora is the referee. He gives his final instructions and we're ready to go.

Round 1

Rosado tries to get off early and bounce back out of range. Angulo presses forward as you'd expect. Nice right by Perro and Rosado tries to answer. Rosado is circling well to try to avoid being cornered. Alfredo walks in and tries some body shots. Rosado tries a quick combo but it's mostly blocked. Angulo lands a short left and takes a few shots back at the bell.

Franchise: 10-9 Angulo

Round 2

Rosado shows quick hands but doesn't seem to have the power to bother Angulo at this point. Nice left hook counter by Rosado. Angulo buckles down and drops Rosado with a short right hand to the head. He's up but looks discouraged. Angulo goes right after his foe and puts him back down with a combination. There's a minute to go, but Angulo lands a left hand, then follows up with punches that have Rosado crumpled in the corner. Rosado is upset because the first knockdown came after a clinch when he expected the ref to step in, but there's not much he can do after the ensuing assault.

The winner by TKO in Round 2, Alfredo "Perro" Angulo.
