Angulo Wants Top Trainer, Open To Kirkland Rematch

By Luis Sandoval

As reported last week on BoxingScene.com, Alfredo “Perro” Angulo is a free man once again after finally being released from the El Centro Immigration Detention Center after 7 grueling months in order to fix his working visa situation. While it was a high price to pay in order to clear his name and be able to train and fight in the United States again, in the end he is now back on track and ready to stake his claim in boxing.

The Light Middleweight division has gotten considerably deeper while Angulo was out of commission and one can’t help but get excited at the potential fights that can be made. Angulo himself is excited and is even more excited to be able to provide the people with great fights.

“I think what excites me is there are good fights for the people. For the fans who truly love the sport. It’s something I’ve always done. I consider myself an old school throwback fighter. The ones that like for the people to enjoy themselves” Angulo would tell BoxingScene.

While Angulo would love nothing more than to get back in the ring as soon as possible, one matter that needs to be taken care of is getting a new trainer. Angulo was last trained by Nacho Berenstein for his fight against James Kirkland but given the fact that he will now train exclusively in the United States, a new trainer will be needed.

“I think the most important thing is to find a new trainer. We are working on that. We are choosing the best trainer for the rest of my career because I thought that’s how it was going to be with my last trainer. I never thought I would have to change trainers” said Angulo.

“Unfortunately I have to so we are handling that very delicately because we want to choose [a trainer] that will help define the rest of my career”.

Speaking to Angulo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya, they will make sure Angulo takes the proper steps and a tune up fight is definitely in order. No opponents have been discussed though the ultimate plan is to get Angulo a shot at a title next year.

One fight I did ask Angulo about was a possible rematch with James Kirkland. I asked if that’s a fight he’d eventually like down the road.

“Definitely. And not for me, but because I owe that fight to the people. God willing maybe not this year but maybe next year. I think the people would love to see a rematch”.

Alfredo Angulo will be making an appearance on BoxingScene’s official radio show "The Boxing Lab" on Tuesday to talk more about his experience and future plans.

I rather he not go with Garcia, he let Margarito take an unnecessary beating against Pac that ended his career early.

[QUOTE=jsfd26;12456617]Negative. He has to make a stop at 130 first. If Uchiyama-Aoh happens then the winner of that if not the winner of Gamboa-Salgado. [/QUOTE] What? I was just listing the fighters trained by Garcia. Dunno what you're talking about.…
