LAS VEGAS -- 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 of their junior middleweight fight. Alvarez (43-1-1) never was able to put down Angulo (22-4), but hit him throughout the fight with hard combinations that almost always found their mark. By the middle rounds, the only suspense left 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 bout ever. But while Mayweather was the master of defence, Angulo was there to be hit all night long -- and Alvarez did just that. "Tonight, I was the best fighter and definitely rebounded from the Mayweather fight with my performance," Alvarez said. Angulo, who was never close to going down, protested when Weeks moved in to stop the fight after a big left uppercut to the head. Before the 10th round began, Angulos corner had pleaded with the ring doctor to give their fighter one more round to try and turn things around. "Im upset because they should have let the fight go on," Angulo said. "Im fine and I was fighting." Angulo never stopped going forward, but he paid a price, taking shot after shot to the head as Alvarez teed off seemingly at will. Alvarez won all but one of the first nine rounds on two ringside scorecards, and two on the third. The Associated Press had him winning eight of the first nine rounds. Ringside punching stats were just as lopsided, with Alvarez landing 295 punches to 104 for Angulo. The ending was booed by many in the crowd that filled the MGM Grand arena for the junior middleweight showdown between the two Mexican fighters. There was no title at stake, but the 23-year-old Alvarez seemed determined to win big to erase memories of the loss to Mayweather, the only one of his career. He landed the first left hook he threw seconds into the fight and it was quickly apparent that Angulo would have no answer for his speed and power. "He wanted to please the fans because he felt in the Mayweather fight he let a lot of people down," promoter Richard Schaefer said. "Canelo was not satisfied with just the win. He came to make a statement and you saw that." Alvarez was already a big star when he met Mayweather in September, but the red-haired fan favourite was frustrated by Mayweathers defence and lost almost every round. He said before this fight that he learned a lot against Mayweather, and vowed to show it in his comeback fight. The only time Angulo even seemed to be in the fight was in the eighth round when he landed some good punches to the head and kept advancing. But Alvarez came back to dominate the ninth round, prompting the ring doctor to look at Angulo between rounds to see whether he could continue. "I was so secure in my jab and my stamina was there," Alvarez said. "Of course I was a little tired, its boxing. But I was ready to finish the fight and even go 10 more rounds." Alvarez was guaranteed $1.15 million to $850,000 for Angulo. The purses were adjusted when Alvarez agreed to pay $100,000 to Angulo on Friday to raise the weight limit to 155 pounds from 154 because he couldnt make the original weight. Before the main event, Alvarez watched from his dressing room as his brother, Ricardo Alvarez, was knocked down twice on the way to a decision loss to Sergio Thompson in a 135-pound fight. Thompson was the harder hitting fighter from the opening bell, winning easily on one scorecard and narrowly on the other two in taking the 10-round decision. In another undercard fight, Leo Santa Cruz remained unbeaten in defending his 122-pound title with a lopsided decision win over Cristian Mijares of Mexico. Santa Cruz, who lives in Los Angeles, shook off a cut near his right eye from a head butt in the fourth round to win every round on two ringside scorecards and all but one round on the third in improving to 27-0-1. Mijares, a former 115-pound champion, fell to 48-8-2. Marquise Brown Jersey . - After three days of light, make that very light, workouts, Team Irvin and Team Carter are ready for tonights Pro Bowl.

We returned home from the San Paolo, a place where we hadnt won for many years, with the three points.We once again sent out a message, which is always the same: were Juventus and we always go out there to win.It will be the second time Juventus plays Verona in the space of a few days with the two clubs meeting Thursday in the Italian Cup. However, it will be a much changed Juventus team, with coach Massimiliano Allegri resting the likes of Carlos Tevez and Andrea Pirlo for the first match.Here are some of the things to know about this weekends games as Serie A approaches the halfway stage:___WAR OF WORDSRoma fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 in the derby against Lazio last weekend but the two clubs have continued to do battle off the pitch, with a war of words between their two presidents rumbling on all week.Among other things, Lazio president Claudio Lotito said he would resign if Roma won the league title, while his counterpart James Pallotta released an odd statement on the cubs website.Next time I come to Rome I will attempt to educate him on our strong and profitable financial position as I would speak to a young child (speaking slowly with as many one syllable words as possible), said Pallottass statement.ddddddddddddIf he still cant figure it out, I give it up.Roma travels to Palermo on Saturday evening, knowing it can move provisionally level with Juventus at the top of the table.___DEFENSIVE WOES FOR MILANAC Milan hosts Atalanta on Sunday with something of a defensive crisis.Cristian Zapata will likely be out for a month after fracturing a metatarsal in his foot, while Mattia De Sciglio could be out for around six weeks after suffering a recurrence of a foot injury that sidelined him in November.De Sciglio would have been suspended for the visit of Atalanta but Milan will be hoping his injury is not as bad as feared.

(Lukas) Podolski and (Xherdan) Shaqiri have come in and weve got pace up front.Inter has won two of its past four matches, drawing the other two, against Lazio and Juventus.Roberto Mancinis team is ninth in Serie A, but six points off third spot in what promises to be a riveting battle for the final Champions League spot.
