Hosted by radio commentator and ring announcer Joseph Herron, the special three hour program will provide alternative, unbiased commentary of the action as it unfolds from “The MGM Grand Garden Arena” in Las Vegas, Nevada!!
Join us as former WBC/WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) takes on former WBO interim title holder “El Perro” Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18 KOs) in the main event of a superb Showtime PPV fight card.
“Main event coverage begins at the 138 minute mark”
The 23 year old fighter from Jalisco, is a pocket counterpuncher who combines speed with power and throws creative combinations to the body and head. He has made a living off of exploiting more aggressive minded opponents in the past, but has yet to face a natural 154 pound fighter with the kind of size, power, durability, and punch output of Alfredo Angulo.
Under the tutelage of experienced fight trainer Virgil Hunter, the Mexicali warrior believes that he has what it takes to become a champion and can pull of the recognized upset this weekend.
Will Angulo derail the “Canelo Express” this Saturday night, or can Alvarez withstand the effective aggression and impose his brand of punishment on “El Perro” to get back some of the respect that he lost on September 14th of last year?
While most mainstream and casual fight fans are rightfully and primarily excited about this Saturday night’s main event, many die-hard boxing pundits are equally thrilled with anticipation for this weekend’s WBC Super Bantamweight contest, featuring “El Teremoto” Leo Santa Cruz (26-0-1, 15 KOs) and Mexican reality TV star Cristian Mijares (49-7-2, 24 KOs).
