Angulo, With Nacho's Backing, Feels Ready For Vanes

By Miguel Rivera

At the Nido Sport Center in Mexicali, Baja California, junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo (20-1, 17KOs) returned to stop Joseph Gomez (17-5-1, 8KOs) in the first round to capture the vacant WBC Continental Americas light middleweight title. A few weeks ago, the WBC ordered a mandatory eliminator between Angulo and unbeaten Vanes Martirosyan, with the winner landing a shot at the WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

In Angulo's corner on Saturday night was hall of fame trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain. Angulo feels ready for the eliminator with Vanes and he's willing to take the fight next. Nacho expects very big things for Angulo and he thinks Angulo's new promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, will secure the fight with Vanes.

"I think he's a very strong fighter. To me he's between puncher and a boxer, and I think if he puts in a little effort more effort then he can develop a little more," Nacho said. "He's an interim champion, and I believe that his new promoter will take of him and the [fight with Vanes] is going to be a reality."
