By Ryan Burton recently caught up with Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo (24-7) in Big Bear, California where the former title challenger is preparing for an August 18th return to the ring.

Angulo revealed that he will face Gabriel Rosado at a catch0weight of 165 pounds at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas.

The fight will headline a card being put on by Red Hook Promotions that has a Mexico versus Puerto Rico theme.


Angulo-Rosado is a rematch of their 2009 bout that Angulo won via 2nd round knockout.

Both fighters went in separate directions following that showdown - securing numerous high profile showdowns over the years.

Rosado (24-11) last fought in October when he stopped Glen Tapia in 6 rounds. That victory snapped a 2 fight losing streak for the 32-year-old - who coming in had lost a close decision overseas to middleweight contender Martin Murray. has also been advised that former two-division champion Juan Manuel Lopez will also appear on the card in what he is saying will be the final fight of his career.
