Hunter Likes Angulo's Chances To "Power" Past Canelo

Text By Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) is a frontrunner to face former junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Canelo is coming off a September decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., while Angulo suffered a tenth round TKO loss to Erislandy Lara in June. Before the stoppage, Angulo had dropped Lara twice in the contest and hurt him several times. IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina is the other fight being considered by Canelo.

"Let's face it, Alfredo gave the best guy at 154, [Erislandy Lara], the worst whipping of his life, the toughest fight of his life. He's very qualified [to face Canelo]. It remains to be seen how Canelo will bounce back from Floyd. That's open for speculation. Any fight that Alfredo is in, he is in the fight because of his punching power. It remains to be seen about Canelo and how he handles that loss," Hunter said.

[QUOTE=Tyler_Durden;14082134]The same goes for Lara, why would he fight Canelo if he's coming off a loss? Canelo vs Angulo makes sense because both guys are coming off losses and their clash of styles would make a very entertaining fight. If…
