Angulo vs Kirkland Still in The Works, Says Schaefer

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer advised BoxingScene.com that his company is still working on finalizing a junior middleweight collision between Alfredo Angulo (20-1, 17KOs) and James Kirkland (29-1, 26KOs). There is interest on both sides, but Schaefer has yet to finalize a financial agreement that would satisfy both sides. If a deal gets reached, the fight would take place on November 5th in Cancun, Mexico. HBO would televise.

"We're still working on it. We're still working on the money side so we have to see if we could pull it off. A lot of people are asking me about it and I'm getting a lot of emails as well. It's a fight that fight fans would love to see," Schaefer said.

Contrary to reports, Humberto Soto will not appear in the HBO televised opener. He suffered a cut in his recent win over Jose Alfaro and won't be ready in time.

Im drooling alittle just thinking about this matchup... I've thought about a match between Margarito vs Kirkland and Margarito vs Angulo but this is great as well. I see Angulo taking this but I hope Kirkland can prove me wrong...

If Kirkland thinks the Japanese fighter hits hard, he gets put in a coma by Angulo. It was a missmatch before Kirkland was knocked out in one round by a guy who hits half as hard as Angulo. Talk about…

can't believe that ANYONE would want to see Angulo-Kirkland -- that's a dog of a fight -- Angulo would kill him, plain and simple
