Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (22-3, 18 KOs) will be facing Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Great fight that will bring about a great deal of action. Both can mix it up in the ring and pack a powerful punch. Angulo has proven himself against a quick, technical boxer (Fight versus Erislandy Lara) which in my opinion, make him a dangerous threat to Canelo. It will be interesting to see how the young Canelo responds after his first professional defeat (September defeat to Floyd Mayweather).
I love the match up, but let’s be real, this is not a Pay Per View match! I get that Canelo’s last fight was PPV, but that was mostly due to Floyd Mayweather. Nothing is set in stone as to whether or not this will be a PPV event. I hope Golden Boy Promotions thinks of the fans first and foremost as well as keeping it real about the magnitude of this match up. All signs point to making this fight a free ShowTime event.
