Angulo: You Will See The Old Angulo at 160-Pounds

By Edward Chaykovsky

Junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo (22-4, 18KOs) promises to bring back the "Old Angulo" on Saturday night, as the Mexican puncher moves up in weight to the middleweight division. Angulo, coming off back to back TKO defeats at 154-pounds, will make his middleweight debut against James De La Rosa (22-2, 13KOs).

Angulo-De La Rosa is part of the Showtime Pay-Per-View undercard to the Mayweather-Maidana rematch, which takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I'm ready for this fight at 160, I'm ready to get back to winning. At the 160-pound weight division, I am going to be a different animal. You're going to see the old Alfredo Angulo.

"I'm going to show the fans, the critics and the media that I am ready. People are asking me if I am still going to have the power at 160 pounds, I don't like to talk, I would rather just show it in the ring on Saturday.

"You can expect a spectacular fight. James De La Rosa is coming to win and so am I but I am the only one that is going to walk out victorious."

People STILL considers El Pollo a decent fighter?! I mean, wasn't he outboxed by Kermit Cintron in HIS PRIME? Same guy, right?

he showed nothing vs alvarez, not even a will 2 survive, vs a younger, far less experienced guy, if he doesn't bring it, he needs 2 stop...another thing, longer the bout goes greater chance he'll have that eye problem again...I'd…

He looked verry drained at 154, moving to 160 makes sense. Im excited to see if he performs better or not. Maybe hes just done, we will see.
