The fight card was confirmed to be a go, as it only makes sense for Golden Boy to let the show continue. It gets their signee some much-needed rounds before they officially put him on one of their shows.
Getting hold of the show’s promoter was an ordeal if anything but Tony Torres would inform Maxboxing.com that there were no problems on his end. The card was ready to go and he released the ticket price information along with the rest of the card’s lineup, a total of nine fights including the main event.
Angulo, whose last fight was a blowout win over former 154-pound world champion Joachim Alcine in July 2010, will hopefully get some rounds in against Gomez, a fighter whose main opposition has included the likes of Elco Garcia, Jose Luis Cruz and Rudy Lovato.
Gomez been stopped three times in his last four fights and has been a middleweight for some time now. Gomez should be well-rested, as his last fight took place this past February.
Television availability is fuzzy at best thus far, with no clear word as to who will actually provide coverage. In Mexico, it is said that Televisa will telecast the show and other reports have ESPN Deportes and ESPN3.com providing the US broadcast.
Tickets range from 200 to 1500 pesos (about $20-$150, US).
Francisco “Franky” Leal vs. Leopoldo “Feroz” Gonzalez, ten rounds, super bantamweights
Armando “Chato” Robles vs. Manuel “Pirry” Leyva, ten rounds, super lightweights
Cesar “Saba” Vazquez vs. Sergio “Micky” Lopez, eight rounds, super featherweights
Juan “Veneno” Romo vs. Vicente “Bufalo” Sandez, six rounds, heavyweights

Victor Betancourt vs. Andres Ledesma, four rounds, featherweights
Francisco Pina vs. Enrique Flores, four rounds, featherweights
Jose Luis Alvarado vs. Liroy Zavala, four rounds, flyweights
Get there early, as the promoters expect a sell-out.
