Alfredo Angulo Now Eyes Ring Return in October

By Miguel Rivera

World title challenger Alfredo 'Perro' Angulo hopes to confirm his next ring return date, for the month of October.

He was scheduled to face Gabriel Rosado in a rematch, which was booked for this month in Texas, but the entire event fell out.

Angulo, despite the Rosado date falling out, has not stopped training a single day with veteran coach Abel Sanchez in Big Bear, California.

Angulo, 36, has a professional record of 24-7 with 20 knockouts.

His most recent ring outing was back in April, when he suffered a split decision loss to former world champion Sergio Mora. In his last seven outings, including fights with Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara, he just has two wins.

"They changed the date [of my next fight], so in theory it will be the fight in October, but they have not confirmed this to us. The good thing is that I have kept training, I am giving one hundred percent and the truth is that I am feeling good with this hard work. I feel even better than I did many years ago. I'm happy with Abel, with the team, with the camp," Angulo told ESPN Deportes.

Angulo's motivation comes not only from his family, but also from Abel, who has told him good things about his work in the gym.

"I think he is happier than me with what we have done in the gym, he tells me that I am ready for Gabriel Rosado and for whatever it comes, because he knows how to motivate me and because I am very focused on the work. I have not stopped even one day," Angulo said.

"I owe it to my family, especially my wife, for all the support that she has given me, I owe it to Abel for the opportunity he is giving me to work with him, to the fans because they have not stopped supporting me, and I owe it to myself, because I feel that they have not defeated me, but I have defeated myself for not giving the best of me."

Angulo has been done since he quit vs lara.

Angulo needs to retire. He's been an exciting fighter, but his lack of defense could lead to him getting hurt or permanently damaged as he gets older.
