Alfredo Angulo has just received the biggest fight that he has been in search of in his career, a shot at Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Angulo last fought in June of 2013 when he was he lost via TKO to Eislandy Lara. Angulo was ahead in the fight and knocked Lara down twice but due to a horrific eye injury Angulo could no longer continue.
So how did Angulo land the fight and not Lara? Easy. Angulo is a well known fighter. He brings constant pressure, the entertainment factor and Angulo can sell tickets which would mean more cash in Canelo’s pockets as well.
“(Angulo) is a strong and very dangerous fighter who always gives good fights,” said Canelo. “That’s what people want to see.”
