Angulo vs Kirkland? Lara Having Opponent Troubles

By Miguel Rivera

A lot of rumors are going around in Mexico regarding the event which Golden Boy Promotions is interested in staging on November 5th in Cancun. Junior middleweight Alfredo Angulo (20-1, 17KOs) would be featured in the headline fight. As reported on Thursday on, Vanes Martirosyan turned down an offer to face Angulo and now Golden Boy is searching for an alternative option.

One option being considered is an in-house shootout between Angulo and James Kirkland (29-1, 26KOs). Both fighters are reportedly interested in facing each other.

After Vanes fell out, Erislandy Lara (15-1, 10KOs) made attempts to step in, but Angulo's camp turned him down. Golden Boy would like to place Lara on the card, but Angulo, Kirkland, Austin Trout and Sergei Dzinziruk have all reportedly turned down offers to face him.

[QUOTE=Solitario;11109206]The article mentions all these guys that are supposedly turning down a fight with Lara, but has Lara's team extended an offer to Molina, who I thought edged him out in their last fight? Although Angulo is the higher profile…
