The punch landed perfectly on the chin of Casarez. The Texas fighter was unconscious before he hit the canvas. He began to stir at the count of five, but it was obvious that he wouldn’t beat the ten count.
The victory was an emotional one for Angulo. He commented in the ring about how nervous he was in the days leading up to the fight. He also said that even after spending seven grueling months in prison, he never doubted he’d fight again.
The bout was televised by Showtime Championship Boxing.
