FREDDY Hernandez beat up a lead-footed Alfredo Angulo by unanimous decision on Saturday night’s Robert Guerrero – David Peralta undercard. The scores were 97-93 twice and 98-92 for Hernandez who has now won four in a row after losing his previous six. The Mexico City native improves to 34-8 with 22 KOs and plans to return to junior middleweight for his next fight.
The Mexican rivals started slow and remained in low gear for the duration of the fight, even compared to previous versions of themselves. Angulo’s head movement, never really his strong suit, was non-existent for the duration of the fight and Hernandez wasted no time exploiting it.
By the third round, Hernandez seemed to be in complete control of the fight, keeping Angulo at an uncomfortable distance, and landing two and three punch combinations on the sluggish Mexicali native.
