It’s been two years since Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo was in the place where he feels most at the home — the boxing ring. Along with opponent Vladimir Hernandez, he set a junior middleweight record for combined punches thrown with 2,137. Not bad for an aged Mexican warrior, but Angulo also found himself on the wrong end of a unanimous decision defeat viewed as an upset and death knell for his career.
Now two months shy of his 40th birthday, Angulo will return to the ring on June 11 at Atlanta’s “Summertime Brawl” event against journeyman Fidel Monterrosa Munoz. It’s a far cry from his former battles with Pound 4 Pound elites like Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara, or even his Fight of the Year against James Kirkland. But El Perro vows this old dog has a few more tricks left to make a surge back into title contention.
Angulo sits down with BeatsBoxingMayhem to detail his comeback and even reveals his favorite all-Mexican mythical matchup.
