Canelo vs. Angulo: “A perfect match-up for Canelo’s comeback”

Canelo and AnguloIn the unpredictable sport of boxing, anything can and often does happen inside the squared circle on fight night, especially on the world class level. Although a man’s fate can turn with one cracking shot on the whiskers, styles usually dictate the eventual victor and loser.

Despite being one of the hardest punchers within the talented 154 pound weight division, most boxing pundits and experts believe that Alfredo Angulo is tailor made for Canelo Alvarez’s explosive counter punching prowess.

This past Tuesday night on “The Pugilist KOrner” radio show, expert trainer Joel Diaz gave us his take on the volatile March 8th PPV main event.

“Alfredo is a good friend of mine, but you know I’m always going to speak to truth about how I see things,” admitted the hard working California based trainer. “I think that his personal and professional issues set him back.” Continue reading

Robert Guerrero wants out of contract with Golden Boy Promotions

guerrero6789After getting his dream fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last year in May and promptly losing it badly, former two division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) reportedly wants out of his contract with Golden Boy Promotions. CEO of Golden Boy Richard Schaefer doesn’t understand why Guerrero would want to leave, as he got him the Mayweather fight, and also got him a fight against Andre Berto. Schaefer recently offered him a fight against unbeaten Keith Thurman last December, but Guerrero turned that fight down for some reason.

Guerrero will try to break the contract by going through arbitration with the California State Athletic Commission, according to ESPN. However, the contract was signed in New York, so it’s possible that they will need to hear this instead of the California Commission. Continue reading
