Angulo-Rosado II in The Works For Mayweather-Guerrero?

By Ryan Burton

Multiple sources have advised BoxingScene.com that a rematch between former junior middleweight champion Alfredo Angulo (22-2) and Gabriel Rosado (21-6) is in the works to take place on the Floyd Mayweather versus Robert Guerrero televised pay-per-view undercard.  Angulo knocked out Rosado in two rounds in their first encounter which took place in August, 2009.

A lot has changed since that fight. At the time Rosado was working a day job in addition to pursuing his boxing career.  The fighter of Puerto Rican descent had won 7 fights in a row before moving up to middleweight and being stopped by Gennady Golovkin in January.  Angulo won his next 4 fights before being knocked out by James Kirkland.  He then spent nearly 7 months at the Immigration Detention Justice Center in El Centro, CA. reportedly for visa violations.  Since his release he has won both of his fights.

The Mayweather-Guerrero undercard is beginning to take shape.  Earlier today Boxingscene's Rick Reeno reported that Daniel Ponce De Leon will defend his WBC featherweight title against two-division champion Abner Mares in the co-featured fight. Undefeated former bantamweight champion  Leo Santa Cruz, who will be making his debut in the 122 pound division, is also likely to be on the card.
