Interm WBO light middleweight champion Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo (18-1) is scheduled to return to the ring on July 17th versus Canadian Joachim Alcine (32-1).  The fight will be televised by HBO and is the co-featured bout to Tim Bradley versus Luis Carlos Abregu.  El Perro is coming off an 11th round knock out victory over Joel Julio.  Angulo talks about the keys to victory and also gives his thoughts on the recent fight between Miguel Cotto and Yuri Foremanm, and more in this exclusive BoxingScene interview.
 
BoxingScene.com:  How is training going for your upcoming fight with Joachim Alcine?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  Everything is good thanks to God.  We are training hard and sparring well.  We know this will be a tough fight.  We are preparing for a very tough physical fight.  We have hired a strength and conditioning coach for the first time as well.
 
BoxingScene.com:  What made you decide to get a strength and conditioning coach for this fight?  Is it getting tougher to make weight or are you just looking to get stronger?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  Really it was Gary (Shaw) who made the decision.  He advised me that I should have a strength and conditioning coach.  He said it would be a benefit for me and it would really help me in all facets of boxing.  I haven't had any trouble making weight and I feel like I get stronger as the fights go on but if it can help me perform better then I will do it.
 
BoxingScene.com:  Have you seen any of Alcine's fights?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  No not really.  I don't watch much tape.  My trainer Clemente (Medina) watched the tapes they sent us.  He is familiar with Alcine's style and is developing the game plan.  I think its better for Clemente to watch the tapes and develop the plan.  I know Alcine is a fighter who is very fast and doesn't like to lose.
 
BoxingScene.com:  Alcine has fought most of his career in Canada and when he stepped up in class versus Daniel Santos he was knocked out.  Did you see that fight?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  I didn't see it.  I think Santos knocked him out in the 6th round.  Clemente watches the videos and prepares the game plan.  I just work hard in the gym to prepare for the fight.  He will make the game plan and I will execute it in the ring on July 17th.
 
BoxingScene.com:  Alcine is 34 years old and this probably is his last shot at getting on HBO.  Do you feel that Alcine is going to be at his absolute 100% best in this fight knowing what is at stake for him?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  I think that he is training just like I am.  I think it will be a tough fight.  All of these fighters who fight me train harder than they have before when get ready to fight me.  I don't think Alcine will be training any differently than the other guys.  I am sure he will be training hard as well.
 
BoxingScene.com:  The WBO recently ordered a fight between Sergiy Dzinziruk, the WBO light middleweight champion and yourself the interm champion.  Is Gary Shaw looking to do that fight after this fight with Alcine?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  I will fight with anybody, you know me.  Gary hasn't said anything about that yet and until he does I am not going to think about it.  Right now I am focused on Joachim Alcine and July 17th and nothing else.  If everything goes as planned and I win well then I will fight whoever they want me to fight against.
 
BoxingScene.com:  What did you think of the Cotto-Foreman fight?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  I thought it was a great fight.  Leading up to the fight I felt that Cotto would win but Foreman really surprised me.  I was surprised that when he got hurt he kept on fighting.  It really showed the type of character he has and that he is a real tough fighter.  He showed a lot of heart and valor to keep on fighting with his knee injured as badly as it was.
 
BoxingScene.com:  What are your thoughts on the main event for your fight on July 17th, Bradley-Abregu?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  I think it will be a good fight.  Abregu is a strong fighter.  He isn't as technical as Bradley but he is strong.  Bradley is a great boxer with great boxing ability but he doesn't have the power of Abregu.  Abregu likes to come forward and Bradley will look to outbox him and I think Bradley will outbox him to get the win.
 
BoxingScene.com:  Do you have a message for the fans?
 
Alfredo Angulo:  The same as always Ryan.  Whenever you see an HBO fight card with the name Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo you know it will be a great show.  July 17th won't be any different.  We are training hard and the fans should be in for an action packed night.
