Junior middleweight puncher Alfredo Angulo (22-2, 18KOs) is looking to power past Cuban boxer Erislandy Lara (17-2-2, 11KOs) on June 8th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The bout is scheduled for twelve rounds with the winner being placed in a very good position for a world title opportunity in the near future. Angulo, now trained by Virgil Hunter, wants to show off his improved abilities.
"Many say that Cuba's boxing is very good and [the fighters] are very technical, but that's amateur boxing. They have brought that style to the professional ranks and it has worked for them, but I think that Lara [will not be able to] do much in a dog fight. Now my defense is much better, I've practiced a lot and you will notice the difference. I could tell you something about my changes, but I prefer that people watch for them on the eighth of June," said Angulo to Erika Montoya.
