Lions & Pit Bulls & Pugs...Oh My!

Report & Photos By William Trillo

Like a journey to The Land of Oz, ESPN's Friday night show was filled with an assortment of wild beasts, both 4 legged and two legged. It was a near carnival atmosphere but the crowd at Buffalo Bill's in Nevada did not complain, in fact they enjoyed all the festivities, and rightly so, the night was full of thrills and spills thanks to the Main Events that featured a couple of Gary Shaw promoted stars.

The main event saw Jr. Middleweight Alfredo "Perro" Angulo (16-1,13 KO's), in his first fight since his first pro loss.

Angulo wasted no time jumping on his foe Gabriel Rosado (12-4 7 KO's), as he dumped him on the seat of his pants with a nice right hand early.


It was all Angulo from that point on as the tough Mexican pressed hard and did not let up until the referee waved it off quickly in the second round at the 2:13 mark.

In the Semi-Main Super Middle Anthony Dirrell  (18-0, 15 KO's) took on a very tough Alfredo Contreras (10-6-1, 4 KO's) who was a game challenge but did not have the firepower to deal with Dirrel.

From the opening bell the fighters were jawing and smiling at each other but it was Dirrel who was inflicting all the damage. Try as he might, Contreras did not have an answer for Dirrel's onslaught and it was clear this fight would not see the final bell.

It was in the seventh round that Dirrell began teeing off time and time again and it wasn't long before his corner men hopped onto the ring apron and threw in the towel forcing the ref to stop it at the 2:32 mark.  

Also featured on the card was the bright Heavyweight prospect Travis Kauffman (18-0, 15 KO's), who didn't need long to dispose of William Shanahan (7-2, 6 KO's). After going down right away in round one Shanahan was sent reeling and the ref stopped the battle. This one came to a halt quickly in round 1.
The remainder of the night went as follows:

Welterweight Said El Harrak TKO'd Jesus Vallejo in 3  
Time: 2:59


Light welterweight Sharif Bogere TKO'd Rodolfo Armenta in 2
