Berlanga beat Angulo, but could lose by disqualification: video


Madison Square Garden Theatre, New York, USA. In the main fight of the evening in the second middleweight limit (up to 76.2 kg), the once 100% puncher American of Puerto Rican blood Edgar Berlanga (20-0, 16 KOs) defeated the age-old former challenger from Colombia, Roamer Angulo (27-3, 23 KOs) .

Underdog occupied the center of the ring. He attacked most often with lateral or sweeping through the arm. Berlanga hid behind a block, sometimes trying to counter. It was not always possible to keep the opponent on the jab.

A funny episode happened after the end of the 2nd round. The underdog came to a neutral corner and was very surprised that they were not waiting for him there, after which he realized the mistake and ran to his own.

Berlanga again portrayed himself as a pure boxer. He looked good, which, compared to Angulo, is not a very cool achievement. The underdog smashed the favorite’s nose in the 3rd round.

In the 4th three-minute period, Berlanga could finish the game. He lowered his hands and began to complain to the referee about the opponent. Angulo could very well use this moment and punish the favorite, but it seems that he was a little taken aback and missed the opportunity. So far, the American is more effective, but only due to the better percentage of hits delivered – approximately equally accurate.

Wow! Berlanga tried to bite (!) his opponent on the shoulder in the 7th round! OK. At least something impressed me today! Of course, there will be no disqualification.

And the fight itself is unexpectedly competitive. Although it is possible that the judges have all the rounds for the favorite. In the corner, the Berlangi understand that everything is bad – the pump has gone from the coach (this is no longer Andre Rozier).

The older Angulo did not throw punches so actively in the decisive rounds, so the help of the judges would not be needed – Berlanga was a little better. Judges score: 98-92, 99-91 and 99-91. We warned…

Berlanga UD 10.
