Alfredo Angulo Aims To Overwhelm Erislandy Lara

By Miguel Rivera

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.

[QUOTE=hougigo;13427875]Acting like P4P lists mean anything. They're objective Pac's still on there despite losing twice in a row, Robert Guerrero was on the Ring's to hype his fight, Adrian Broner is on there too. P4P lists are a joke Rigondeaux…

[QUOTE=humanpunchingbg;13427862]Angulo by Mid round KO/TKO. You guys keep talking about this Lara fellow like he's the second coming of Ali. There is a weird obsession with Cuban boxers on BS. When's the last time one was in a P4P list?[/QUOTE]…
