Angulo vs Kirkland Winner in Line To Face Saul Alvarez

By Miguel Rivera

According to junior middleweight Alfredo "Perro" Angulo, the scheduled clash with James Kirkland (29-1, 26KOs) is going to be a WBC final eliminator. The winner will be in line to challenge champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The fight happens on November 5th in Cancun, Mexico, and co-promoted by Pepe Gomez, Golden Boy Promotions and Cancún Boxing. Angulo is training with Nacho Beristain.

"For my last fight, we worked for two weeks with Don Nacho and we worked together very well. For this fight, I decided to come early in order to get more time to work with him," Angulo (20-1, 17KOs) said. "The WBC ordered an eliminator between Vanes [Martirosyan] and myself, but he refused and [the WBC] told me that the mandatory fight will move forward. If everything goes well, we are going to be ranked number one in the world, and then we'll search for the world title. I have no interest in any fighter in particular, I am ready for any worthy champion."

Angulo sparred for four rounds with Gilberto "Flaco" González and now he's waiting for a paid of left handed fighters to arrive this week.

Angulo will take Kirkland apart so I guess that means he'll be fighting Alvarez? -- this would be a compelling matchup -- I'd put Angulo as the favorite but Alvarez would be a very live underdog -- think that many…

I cant stand that Alvarez guy. Hes mexican but looks like a english guy, a bit like Ricky Hatton or something. I have never seen a mexican look like that.

[QUOTE=boxing freak;11266475]This fight is not going to happen but not because GBP is afraid that Angulo will destroy Alvarez. It isn't going to happen because Alvarez will be exposed when he gets picked apart by Kermit Cintron. I know many…

If fat man Sulaiman is behind the WBC, don't believe the hype.. Plus the WBC might order another 12 eliminatorS before they gIve Fraudnello a shot with a live body.. GBP knew all along what they were doin signing Angula…
