Angulo's Return: Delvin is Out, Freddy Hernandez Eyed

By Ryan Maquinana

A source close to the situation has advised that Delvin Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14KOs) has decided to take a pass on facing junior middleweight contender Alfredo "Perro" Angulo (21-2, 18KOs) on December 15th at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The Showtime televised card is headlined by Amir Khan vs. Carlos  Molina.

Rodriguez and his management were very interested in the fight, but the date of the contest became the main sticking point. Rodriguez needed more time to prepare and Angulo's return date is pretty concrete.

BoxingScene was informed that Freddy Hernandez (30-3, 20KOs) is now being mentioned as a possible opponent. Hernandez lost a ten round decision to Erislandy Lara in June.

Delvin would really be out if the fight ever happened. It would probably go exactly the way the Rosado fight did. People don't realize how hard Angulo punches.

Angulo is a humble guy..I like him But he may get outboxed by someone with a good technique and footwork..
