The Golden Boy Promotions fight card called Toe to Toe featured several great fights. Take a look at the photo gallery that includes Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Alfredo "Perro" Angulo, Leo santa Cruz, Jorge Linares and Sergio "Yeyo" Thompson.

When the fight was stopped suddenly by referee Tony Weeks, the crowd was downright ornery and beer and other liquid was tossed into the ring and the surrounding areas.
