Alfredo Angulo Eyes Gold: I Want a World Title Shot in 2017!

By Edward Chaykovsky

ANAHEIM, CALIF. - Middleweight contender Alfredo 'El Perro' Angulo is hoping to work his way further to world title shot, when he returns on August 27th as part of a Premier Boxing Champions on Spike TV card from the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Angulo (24-5, 20KOs) suffered three defeats in a row and his career seemed to be over when James De La Rose pulled off an upset win over him in September of 2014.

Angulo has now won two in a row by knockout, over Hector Munoz and Delray Raines, and next faces Freddy Hernandez (33-8), who himself is riding a three fight win streak.

The card is headlined by the former multi-division weight champion Robert Guerrero as he takes on Argentine slugger David Emanuel Peralta. Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.

Angulo hopes to continue his win streak, fight by fight, leading up to a world title shot in 2017.

"I want to show people that 'El Perro' is back and that I still want to compete in the biggest fights. If I work hard, I think that I can have an opportunity by next year for a title shot," Angulo said.

"I have a great team in training and we're working hard for this challenge. I want to put on a great show for the fans. I want fans to remember my fights and I think this will be the best fight of the night."
 
"Two Mexicans fighting is always a great fight. We have a lot of experience and we're both going to come forward and fight with our hearts. This will be a great night of boxing. I'm confident no matter who I fight. I bring my heart to the ring and fight for my fans until the last bell."

Tickets for the August 27 event, which is promoted by TGB Promotions, are priced at $31, $58, $108 and $203, plus applicable fees, and are on sale now. Tickets are available via ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster retail locations or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the Honda Center Box Office.

He needs to just let that dream go, it's a wrap!

Its good to be positive obviously, but I can't see that happening at 154 or 160. Idk how viable that could be at 168 between Angulo doing anything at that high a weight or with the current title situation, but…

Margarito-Angulo. Make it happen baby. They're both past it, but it's nonetheless an even, fan friendly fight between two name guys that fans love(d). Winner could maybe even get Cotto, who's dying to retire with a win over a mexican.

Maybe there is a few 'fan friendly' fights out there or him. He's kind of done at top level now though isn't he.

Well then he should put on 50 to 60 pounds and Wilder will give him a shot. Wilder fans will say at least Angulo brings it. :rofl::rofl:
