Alfredo 'Perro' Angulo has accused Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. of being unprofessional and lacking discipline - because he says Chavez postponed their planned fight for January 26.
Angulo is still on standby to see if Chavez Jr. will decide to face him at the end of February or in March.
Chavez Jr. claims that he's currently in training and simply delayed the fight because he's yet to reach an agreement on the financial terms for the fight.
Chavez Jr. has been out of the ring since last May, when he was dominated over twelve rounds by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Angulo (24-6, 20 KOs) feels like his time is being wasted, because Chávez Jr. (50-3-1, 32 KOs) - through their mutual manager Al Haymon - was the one who pursued this fight.
"I'm surprised that he says he's ready to fight me because it's not like that. They told us that by January 26 [we'd fight] and I was ready but they told me he was not going to be ready and asked for more time," Angulo said to ESPN Deportes. "He says I'm looking for him but that's not true either... they called me because he was looking for me. I did not need my father's name to make my career."
"This week I stopped training because my baby was born on Friday and I have been with my wife, but next Monday I'm going with Don Rómulo Quirarte to continue and see if the fight with Julio is made. And if not, I have already been offered a fight with a boxer [being promoted by] Floyd Mayweather - although I must also say that they warned me that there was nothing safe with Julio."
Alfredo has been inactive for some time. He's been out of the ring since losing an upset decision to Freddy Hernandez in August 2016. Some experts even thought he was retired, but the Mexican fighter has continued to stay in the gym and kept in shape.
