Junior middleweight division in boxing

Just to show how tough the 154-pound division is in boxing, Kermit Cintron beat previously unbeaten Alfred Angulo on Saturday night. Cintron is a tough fighter himself having competed at 147 previously.

Angulo is an up and comer in the division, but Cintron showd he still has something left. The 154-pound weight class has good fighters and some good matchups on the horizon. Las Cruces' Austin Trout is in the 154-pound division and is unbeaten. Hopefully, he'll get more big fights this year.

With his win on Saturday, Cintron now has the chance for some big fights down the road. Hopefully, Angulo will learn from this this fight and grow.

Also keep an eye for Vanes Matirosyn, who beat Trout in the 2004 Olympic Trials and is a tough fighter as well with zero losses.
