Although the rumors have been lingering for months, junior middleweight Alfredo Angulo finally confirmed his incarceration to ESPN's radio program "A Los Golpes." The boxer is being held at an immigration detention center in California. He surrendered himself through an agreement between his lawyers and the immigration authorities.
According to Angulo, he was set to appear for a court hearing in April to resolve the immigration issues, but for unknown reasons the court date was postponed until June. Angulo has been detained at the center for at least four months.
Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya came to visit him a few weeks ago to show his support. Angulo has been inactive since last November's six round TKO loss to James Kirkland. He was already facing immigration issues in the United States, but his desire to fight on American soil was the reason for his surrender to resolve the legal issues.
