Junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo disputes the stoppage by referee Raul Caiz Sr. in his bout against Erislandy Lara on Saturday night. “I never quit,” Angulo told USA Today via text. “I turned to tell Virgil that my eye got thumbed twice. The ref stopped it without checking the situation or giving a count. A regular punch would not do that. It’s dirty fighting by Lara, again. I was following the game plan and was building the pressure.”

According to the article, the Angulo Team also questioned the treatment “El Perro” got at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, which claimed Angulo didn’t suffer any fractures or breaks, however “nobody really checked him out” before discharging him.
