On Saturday, August 27, 2016, Freddy Hernandez (34-8, 22 KOs) scored a unanimous decision victory against Alfredo Angulo (24-6, 20 KOs) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
The fight was the co-main event of a three-fight telecast of PBC on Spike TV, which was headlined by a fight featuring Robert Guerrero.
Unfortunately, the fight was a battle between two fighters who passed their prime and who have taken tough losses from much better fighters.
Hernandez had lost against Francisco Santana, Erislandy Lara, Andre Berto and even Delvin Rodriguez, while Angulo had lost to Lara as well, along with Canelo Alvarez, James Kirkland and Kermit Cintron.
Suffice it to say that it was a battle between two faded veterans, one of who was less faded than the other.
Indeed, Hernandez spent most of the fight outboxing Angulo with his footwork and relative hand speed, while Angulo pushed forward during the entire fight, throwing very slow punches and missing many of them.
Two judges scored the fight 93-97 and one judge scored the fight 92-98, all for Hernandez.
Should Angulo finally hang them up? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
