The biggest test of Michael Angeletti's career so far was presented to him on Saturday night
On the non-televised portion of the Deontay Wilder-Robert Helenius undercard at Barclays Center in Brooklyn,
the undefeated featherweight prospect dropped Jeremy Adorno twice in the second round and hurt him enough in the fifth round for Adorno's trainer
Raul "Chino" Rivas, to stop the action before the sixth and final round started.
By halting southpaw Adorno (7-1, 3 KOs), a fighter from Allentown, Pennsylvania, Angeletti, of Spring,
Texas, raised his record to 7-0 and achieved his sixth knockout.
Adorno mounted a comeback and threw the stronger blows in the third round after going down twice in the second round
In the fourth round, Agneletti regained the initiative, and in the fifth,
he delivered a series of flush blows that convinced Rivas that Adorno had absorbed enough punishment.
