"If Angulo wants to fight next month, he will," stated Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya, who discussed the future plans of jr. middleweight Alfredo Angulo. Recently released from the El Centro Immigration Detention Facility, Angulo was in attendance with De La Hoya during a media lunch on Tuesday at La Serenata de Garibaldi in Los Angeles, California. "We have the dates at our disposal and will use them on him if that is what he wants," De La Hoya added.
Eager to make up for lost time, Angulo is hoping to fight 5-7 times a year. According to De La Hoya, despite the fact Angulo has been in the detention center for over 7 months, an opponent for his next fight could be announced in the coming days. Although his first fight will likely be a tune-up, Angulo is adamant about wanting to fight a top contender.
