Alfredo Angulo: I can still make 154lbs but not Comfortably, That's Why the Jump to 160lbs

Alfredo Angulo        

Hi. Good morning, everybody, and thank you so much for the call. This is Alfredo Angulo, and I'm ready for the questions.

 

Q        

Alfredo, what is bringing on this move to 160 pounds and did the weight cut affect you greatly in the Canelo Alvarez fight?

 

A. Angulo      

I think this is a good fight for my weight. I've been getting my weight and my body ready for the next weight class. I cut a lot of weight before the last fight and I think my body will be better at middleweight.

Q        

Alfredo, have you already started training camp, and are you planning to get there early so that those mistakes don't occur again in this new fight moving forward at a new division?

 

A. Angulo      

Yes, definitely. I've come up early to the camp, and I'm working on a lot of things that are going to put me in top form by September.

Q

Alfredo, why the change in division, and what was it that you learned with your fights with Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara?

 

A. Angulo      

Well, basically I've been saying it all along I was going to stay at 154 up until my body said otherwise. It's not a struggle. I can still make 154 but not comfortably, so that's why the jump to 160. You know, I think I'm going to feel more comfortable. I'm going to be the "Perro" that you all know.

 

As far as the Lara fight, I learned a lot. It was a great experience. I showed the people that gave me no chance, that Perro is always going to be here and give great fights. Honestly, in the Canelo fight I can't tell you I learned anything because I wasn't there. It wasn't me. It wasn't the one you all know, and I didn't feel the strength and I wasn't able to put on the performance that I would've wanted.

 

Q        

Alfredo, what do you know about your opponent James De La Rosa besides the record that obviously is very good. But what can we expect in that fight with him?

 

A. Angulo      

You know, in all honesty I don't really look into too much of my opponents besides obviously their record. I don't know really too much about James as far as what style he can bring. What I do know is that all my opponents when they are going to face me, they train extra hard. They give it that extra training because they know that it's not going to be an easy night once they step into that ring with me.

 

Q

Alfredo, do you still think you'll have the same power at 160 as you did as a junior middleweight?

 

A. Angulo      

I don't know. Honestly I think you'll know come Sept.13 if I have the same or even more going into the new division. We'll let you guys decide.
