Angulo to Face Jorge Silva on Khan-Molina Undercard

By Ryan Maquiñana

Golden Boy officials have confirmed with BoxingScene.com that junior middleweight Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo will face Jorge Silva on the Dec. 15 Amir Khan-Carlos Molina card at the Los Angeles Sports Arena.  Showtime will televise both bouts.

Under the tutelage of new trainer Virgil Hunter, Angulo (21-2, 18 KOs), from Mexicali, Mex., had knocked out Raul Casarez (19-3, 9 KOs) in 56 seconds a little over a fortnight ago, and has continued to train in Hayward, Calif., in hopes of fighting once more before the end of the year.

After Golden Boy had unsuccessfully reached out to Delvin Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14 KOs) and Freddy Hernandez (30-3, 20 KOs) on short notice, they were able to strike a deal with Silva (19-2-1, 15 KOs), a native of Tijuana, Mex., who fought to an exciting majority draw with Yoshihiro Kamegai (21-0-1, 18 KOs) on Fox Sports in October. Silva will be ascending seven pounds north from welterweight for the clash and is currently promoted by Erik and Ivan Morales.

Angulo had spent seven months in an immigration detention center in El Centro, Calif., due to visa issues before being released in August.

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5;12754696]Poor Silvia. He's only 20 and a natural Welterweight. I expect another quick night for El Perro.[/QUOTE] He is too green for this fight and lacking experience.

[QUOTE=jsfd26;12754703]Is that the dude that fought the other night when Linares fought? I understand they are probably to get the chemistry between Hunter and Angulo down but can they not find a bigger guy or at least more durable? Makes…
