With the win, Alvarez extends his streak to four, with impressive victories over James Kirkland, Erislandy Lara and Alfredo Angulo.
That wasn’t all that was on offer that night in the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas though, as Guillerme Rigondeaux returned to face Francisco Drian, and Takashi Miura took on Frncisco Vargas all on the undercard.
The Cuban boxer Rigondeaux put on a borefest against the thoroughly overmatched Drian, never really looking like he would finish, or even threaten late on.
Then came a totally unexpected slugfest, out of the blue, featuring Francisco Vargas and Takashi Miura for the WBC world super featherweight title. This fight was simply incredible, and is being labelled ‘FOTY’ with good reason.
