Angulo Feels That His Old Form Will Return With Lara

By Robert Morales

Junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo last year spent over seven months in the immigration detention center in El Centro because of ongoing visa issues; he presented himself to the center thinking he might only be there as long as a month.

It was a widely publicized story that brought Angulo (22-0, 18 KOs) plenty of warmheartedness from his fans. But the time for Angulo for bask in that is over. He is 2-0 with one knockout since coming back in November following a year out of the ring. He wants to get back to the business of getting a shot at a world title.

Angulo, of Los Angeles via Mexicali, will take on Erislandy Lara (17-1-2, 11 KOs) of Cuba on June 8 at Home Depot Center on the undercard of the Marcos Maidana-Josesito Lopez welterweight main event . Lara is a tough customer, but Angulo – a former interim champion -  believes the rust is gone.

“This is my third fight after my time off and conditioning-wise, I’m feeling like my old self, feeling like I used to feel,” said Angulo, 30. “There’s no doubt I’ll be in better condition than I was for my last two fights. There was just too much time off. Now I’m in a rhythm.”

truth be told... Lara is not the best guy to use to return to form, he's the guy that you fight after you've returned to form.

May the best man win. I'm more of an Angulo fan but I do respect them both, (Lara did wax on my bwoy P-Dub), gotta keep it real.

[QUOTE=JOSH OF LA;13380230]I like Angulo, but he isn't beating Lara with his old form or his new form.[/QUOTE] :lol1: Indeed. Lara is too fast and too skilled for Angulo. "Perro" is going to eat shots all night long. Alfredo's greatest…

[QUOTE=budfr;13384768]Cintron lost but received a gift decision. He should have been disqualified for excessive holding and ran like a girl and Amgulo fought sick. Lara will also fight like a girl, running and holding. f****.[/QUOTE] **** outta here with that…
