Alfredo Angulo: Me vs. Antonio Margarito is a Great Fight

By Rick Reeno

Staples Center, Los Angeles, California - Former champion Antonio Margarito (38-8, 27KOs) is preparing to for a planned comeback in the fall. Margarito has been inactive since losing his rematch with Miguel Cotto in December of 2011.

When Margarito returns, he will likely compete in the middleweight division.

Another fighter who recently made the move to 160-pounds is Margarito's countryman and former sparring partner, Alfredo Angulo (24-5, 20KOs).

Angulo had his third fight at 160 on Saturday night and stopped Hector Munoz in five rounds.

Since Margarito, and his manager Sergio Diaz, revealed the planned comeback - a large of fans have once again called for the possibility of an all-Mexican war with Angulo.

Would Angulo face the man he once helped prepare for several key fights? Angulo says "yes. "

"It would be a very interesting fight. [My adviser] Al Haymon would have to approve of that match. I think it would be a great, great fight, because I helped him in a lot of fights with sparring. It would be a great fight," Angulo told

According to Angulo, even their sparring sessions were all-out wars.

"Every time people would come out and see me and Margarito spar, they actually didn't even see it as a sparring session - they saw it as an actual fight because we were so competitive," Angulo explained.

[QUOTE=CJRock;16007537]Whats Cotto known for?? Being a :bottle: diva who quits on his knees in surrender. He 'd have repeated it too but the NY doc stopped fight to save Cotto the embarrassment. Show us proof either Margarito or Angulo cheated.…
