"Tell Ricardo Mayorga, his promoter, his attorney and the rest of his enablers that they did the right thing keeping him out of the ring with me. I would have buried him like a dog buries a bone," said Angulo, who was originally scheduled to fight Mayorga tonight in a world title elimination bout before Mayorga pulled out 10 days before the fight. "I'm the top dog in this division and I dare anyone wearing a world championship belt to prove me wrong."
Angulo is promoted by Gary Shaw and managed by Mike Criscio.
