“What’s going on with your son, El Perro,” asked Big Steve as he picked me up from Pacific BMW onBrand Boulevard, a place where I service my wife’s X-5:” I heard he was ordered by WBC to fight our local boy, Vanes Martirosyan.”

 That’s old news,” I replied:” Angulo and Martirosyan were ordered to fight a title eliminator with a winner to be mandatory for a current WBC champion, Canelo Alvarez, but neither one thinks this fight is going to happen.”

According to Lem Satterfield of Ring Magazine, on the day of his twenty ninth birthday Alfredo Angulo has signed a contract with Golden Boy Promotions. This could quite possibly be the best birthday present the popular Mexican boxer got in his twenty nine years of existence.

Angulo (19-1,16KO’S) has not seen action in the ring since last July’s one round demolition of former champion Joachim Alcine. His promising career has come to a halt due to visa issues and troubles with promoter Gary Shaw.

Earlier this week in Los Angles when I interviewed Shaw I asked him about Angulo. “Anything he says, I don’t even want to talk about it,” shrieked Shaw;” I don’t even want to hear his name. Next question.”

Few days later Shaw has reached a financial agreement with Golden Boy Promotions for the rights to Angulo.

“Yes it is correct. We have signed Alfredo Angulo,” sated Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy promotions via email:” Alfredo is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport and a real threat to anyone in the 154-pound weight class.”
