LAS VEGAS (AP) — Frustrated in his big fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Canelo Alvarez found a much easier target in Alfredo Angulo.

Alvarez battered a game but outclassed Angulo on Saturday night before stopping him with an uppercut that prompted referee Tony Weeks to move in at 47 seconds of the 10th round.

Alvarez never was able to put Angulo down, but hit him throughout the fight with hard combinations that almost always found their mark. By the middle rounds, the only suspense left in the fight was whether Angulo could go the distance.

The fight was in marked contrast to the last bout for Alvarez, who was dominated by Mayweather in the richest fight ever. But while Mayweather was the master of defense, Angulo was there to be hit all night long.
