“El Perro” Barks Again on Saturday Night

After the well-publicized signing of former WBO “interim” super welterweight champion, Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo, 19-1 (16), by Golden Boy Promotions and with little to no information regarding the announced Angulo fight scheduled for this Saturday night against one Joseph Gomez, 17-4-1 (8), many fans were wondering if the card is actually on. Wonder no longer, fans. It is.
 
Angulo, whose contract was bought from Angulo’s previous promoter, Gary Shaw, by Golden Boy Promotions, will indeed see action this Saturday night in his homecoming return at the Nido Sport Center in Mexicali, Baja California. 
 
It will be very interesting to see how much the forced 13-month layoff will affect the fighter, one who has always kept a busy schedule, previously averaging four fights a year.
 
The busy, hard-charging Angulo, who was on the cusp of stardom, will take on Bloomfield, New Mexico’s Gomez in a scheduled 12-round middleweight bout.

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).
 
Undercard Bouts
 
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

Rafael “Rafa” Ortiz vs. Alex Alonso, six rounds, super welterweights
 
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.
 
Tickets can be obtained at the Nido Sport Center’s box-office: (Pesos) $200 general admission, $400 preferential, $1000 general ringside and $1500 ringside, VIP.
