Angulo, Schaefer Comment on Their Promotional Pact

LOS ANGELES - One of the most exciting fighters in the sport of boxing today, Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo has an aggressive style and knockout power that has made him a must-see competitor for years.  Now, Angulo will continue his attack on the junior middleweight division as a member of the Golden Boy Promotions team, and the Mexican warrior has just one goal in win a world championship.

"I always want to give the fans a great show and I work hard to get to my goal of retiring as a world champion," said Angulo, a former interim WBO and WBC Continental Americas junior middleweight champion.  "I believe Golden Boy Promotions is the right company to further my career and achieve my goals in boxing.  I can't wait to become Golden Boy's next world champion."

"There are a handful of fighters who always deliver excitement whenever they're in the ring and Alfredo Angulo is certainly one of those select few," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.  "Alfredo has already accomplished a lot in this sport, but at 29, there's much left for him to accomplish and we're going to be with him every step of the way as he moves from being a star to being a superstar."

A native of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Alfredo Angulo (19-1, 16 KO's) is a 2004 Mexican Olympian who took the professional game by storm as soon as he debuted in 2005.  A devastating puncher whose relentless pressure has seen him break the likes of Ricardo Cortes, Richard Gutierrez, Andrey Tsurkan and Cosme Rivera over the course of his six-year career.  Angulo rebounded from the lone loss of his career via decision to Kermit Cintron in 2009 to win the interim WBO World Title just two fights later against then-unbeaten Harry Joe Yorgey.  In 2010, Angulo continued to show his world-class talent with knockouts of Joel Julio and Joachim Alcine.  Following Angulo reaching a settlement with his prior promoter Gary Shaw Productions, he is ready to resume his quest to rule the junior middleweight division with Golden Boy Promotions in his corner.

good move for Angulo, and looks like we might get a few good fights in the division in the next 12-18 months

[QUOTE=ELPERRO;10976523]Don't feel to sorry for Vanes. If anything negative has happened in his career it's his own fault. If he hasn't got a big fight it's because he hasn't impressed in the ring. De la hoya will do the right…

[QUOTE=Bierstadt;10976453] He will get past Angulo with his movement, and Golden Boy will shove it in all the nay-sayers faces as an amazing feat, further solidifying Canelo's mythical greatness.[/QUOTE] Don't get it twisted. If Canelo can beat Angulo that WILL…
