Canelo: Alfredo Angulo is Going To Be a Very Tough Fight

By Miguel Rivera

Former junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) expects a very tough fight on March 8th, when he faces countryman Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo wants to test himself after losing a twelve round majority decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 14th in the same venue. Angulo looks a for a major win after coming close to upsetting Erislandy Lara last June, before suffering an eye injury in the tenth.

"For me that was not a loss (against Floyd), that was something that taught me to keep winning and obviously hits the pride at home. I never wanted to lose, but that's boxing and as I've said I'm young, I took it as a lesson and I have to keep winning. Criticism will always exist, because when you succeed it always comes hand in hand, so it was not a defeat, it was a great experience," Canelo said.

"Angulo is a strong fighter, he has a heavy punch. We have seen him withstand a lot, always coming forward and he wears down his opponents. He has good stamina. He is very dangerous, you have to prepare very well because this is a very tough fight."

It would surprise nobody who knows sh*t about boxing if the same Angulo that showed up last time shows up again won. I was expecting that guy who punched himself out in one round and looked like sh*t in mexico…

[QUOTE=amayseng;14126943]Angulo gave Lara (who is a superior boxer to Canelo) hell. Canelo's poor stamina may be his undoing. Angulo is a pressure fighter who wears you down and makes you dig deep, something Canelo has never had to do. He…
