Referee Tony Weeks saves Alfredo Angulo from a bloodthirsty Saul Alvarez

Saul Alvarez outclassed Alfredo Angulo to earn an empathic 10th round TKO on Saturday night in front of 14,610 spectators at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs), who hadn’t competed since getting universally outscored by Floyd Mayweather in September, was the fight’s aggressor from the outset.

Using brilliant movement and a diversified attack, Canelo landed left hooks, straight rights and uppercuts seemingly at will.

In fairness, despite being shutout, the 31-year-old Angulo (22-4, 18 KOs) displayed honorable testicular fortitude and absorbed a savage beating until referee Tony Weeks mercifully halted the mismatch at 47 seconds of the decisive round.

"The referee stopped the fight. He's the law of the ring. I could have fought another 10 rounds, but referee stopped the fight," said Alvarez, 23, who began boxing professionally at the ludicrous age of 15. "It's not my problem."

Looking sharp, fast and powerful, Alvaraez quickly established that Angulo wasn’t a worthy adversary.

Still capable of maturing into an elite pugilist, the fierce redhead had the crowd chanting "Canelo! Canelo! Canelo!"

Planning to perform on two more occasions in 2014, Alvarez could soon become “the law of the ring.”

Refocused and incredibly determined, Saul Alvarez is going to be a “problem” for years to come in multiple weight classes.
