Vanes: "I Would Love To Fight Alfredo Angulo"

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

On Thursday the WBC ordered a final elimination bout between Vanes Martirosyan and Alfredo Angulo to decide the next mandatory challenger for WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
 
Martirosyan has been clamoring for a big fight for over a year.  The Armenian was very excited when he heard the news of the elimination bout.  "This is what I have been asking for.  Angulo is a great fighter.  I know my team will work hard to make this fight happen," said Martirosyan.
 
There could be logistical problems as Angulo currently doesn't have a valid visa to enter the United States.  Martirosyan doesn't think that will be a problem.  "I have a lot of Mexican fans and I love Mexican people. I think the Mexican fans are great.  If the deal is right we can look at going down there but there are a lot of options.  Vic (Darchinyan) is going to fight in Armenia.  Maybe Angulo and I could be on that card or we can look at a neutral country like Canada."
 
Martirosyan finished up by saying that he is thrilled with the decision by the WBC.  He is very confident that the fight will be put together.  "Angulo is a warrior.  I am sure he will want the fight.  Especially since the winner will be in position to fight Canelo.  This is what boxing is supposed to be, the best fighting the best."

Vanes is a pretty good fighter he wants to take on Angulo and Canelo shows you he wants the big money fights their's nothing wrong with that.

I always had wanted to see Angulo against Kirkland. Didn't count on Kirkland getting stopped by a guy with 7 KOs in 30 fights. Would love to see Cotto and Angulo get it on. Haven't really seen that much to…
