Alfredo Angulo on a Possible Fight With Saul Alvarez

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Junior middleweight Alfredo Angulo is finally returning to action after a long stretch of inactivity. The once-beaten Mexican is going to stage his next fight on August 20th in Mexicali. He sat ringside on Saturday night at the Arena VFG in Guadalajara and watched Saul "Canelo" Alvarez stop British boxer Ryan Rhodes in the tweflth round to retain his WBC junior middleweight crown.

Angulo is very interested in a fight with Alvarez but he also wants to target the other champions as well. If a title shot opportunity arises, Angulo is ready to take it.

"I know that in this division I will be crowned [champion] if a fight is presented. I would be happy [to fight Alvarez] because it is certain that fights are better when they are contested between two Mexicans. A fight against Canelo for the WBC title would be great, but I might seek an opportunity to become champion of another organization. The old saying goes 'it's the fighter who makes the belt, and not vice versa.' I've really missed being in this environment and I'm going to fight in Mexicali because I want to thank to my people so much for their support.  This it will be a new phase in my career and the people will notice," Angulo told Erika Montoya.

I don't think these guys should fight anytime soon. It will be a better fight later on down the road, much like Chavez vs Alvarez being contested in a few years vs sometime soon. I'd rather Angulo become the WBO…

Angulo easily defeats the hype job.

Pistol Whip, you are a moron! If you had the sense that God gave a Frog you would see Alvarez was badly hurt by a FUKING midget you idiot!
