Nacho: Angulo Will Destroy Canelo in Four Rounds

By Michael Marley

GUADALAJARA--Most of you gringos out there in Boxingland aren't aware of how outspoken Mexico's greatest trainer, Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain routinely is.
 
But, having known this member of TWO boxing halls of fame for decades, I have long known that Professor Beristain bites his tongue on no subject.
 
Even with my mangled Espanol, sans a credible intrerpreter, I deduced that.
 
So it was when I mentioned Mexico's most popular and charismatic rising ring star and, no, I am not making reference to scion of the legend, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.
 
I put it bluntly to the Nacho Man before his latest world champion Juan Carlos Salgado took a hard fought decision and the vacant IBF junior lightweight title from Dominican Argenis Mendez Saturday night in a gym at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara.
 
"I like Canelo Alvarez, he has talent," Beristain said of the redhaired welterweight from this big city.

"But Canelo, must steer completely clear of Alfredo Angulo. Angulo would destroy Canelo in no more than four rounds. This is a fight Alvarez must stay away from. Angulo would be too much for him."

Nacho has spoken.

i think they're about the same in skills, however the inexperience would be the downfall of canelo he's just been fighting bums for too long

would definitely be a compelling fight -- I favor Angulo to outlast and stop Alvarez in a late middel round

I think that if Canelo gets past Gomez convincingly, then he will give Angulo a very hard fight. I'm still not sure he wins against Gomez honestly, but if he does, then he's well on his way.

Not sold on either of these guys, great fight, whichever you think will win. Fact is Alvarez needs to step up to save face for him and WBC. To say canelo will out box him, maybe but he certainly hasn't…

Have to agree with Nacho, Angulo kills Canelo. Canelo is too small to hold perro off for 12 rounds. If Canelo was taller or a natural jr. middle he might of outboxed him.
