Angulo punched himself out in the Kirkland fight. Wild fight.

You’re welcome, Joe!! I’ll definitely be watching this fight tomorrow night, as I believe it’ll be much more exciting than FMJ vs. Chino. I’ll also try to tune into your special edition show to hear you call the fights. Have fun, Brother!

TARK: “Nope. The key is to box… Learn from Kirkland and Lara. The key to Angulo is to box his ass off and then brutalize him. If Canelo can’t outbox this kid, who was outpointed by Cintron, he’s got big problems.”

LOL…my assessment is already based on the assumption that Canelo is incapable of using the entire ring like Cintron and other more fleet footed fighters.

Canelo is a pocket counterpuncher who never uses the entire ring…please give me an example in which he displays this.

Nice interview! I think a lot of guys are underestimating Canelo. Keep in mind that the kid has NEVER once been legitimately hurt or knocked down. Canelo’s power is also being underestimated by most. Truth is that he’s a thunderous body puncher, who throws great combinations, and consistently knocks his opponents down. Angulo has really good power as well, but has the slower hands and footwork. I think Perro’s style is more limited whereas Canelo can brawl like mad in spots, then step back to box and move whenever he chooses. I just don’t see Angulo getting the stoppage or outboxing the speedier more versatile Canelo.

Herron.., “The key for Canelo in this fight is to attack Angulo’s body early.”

Nope.

The key is to box… Learn from Kirkland and Lara. The key to Angulo is to box his ass off and then brutalize him. If Canelo can’t outbox this kid, who was outpointed by Cintron, he’s got big problems.

Unless Canelo can repeat what Lara did to Angulo I see it alot closer than most think. Canelo yes he is a good boxer but that boy Angulo has power. Dont sleep on him or he will catch you. Its a good fight. Perfect to watch on a Saturday night with friends.

i think the reason canelo was hurt was because of him having to make weight and he was weak.this fight was at 147 and he went up in weight shortly after.

B red, that’s a real possibility, but I doubt Angulo will like the taste of Canelo’s power either. I’m just gonna tune in and enjoy the fight.

Tomato Can

This is a great matchup. It can go either way really. I believe Canelo wi unload on Angulo early, but not without taking punishment himself. Angulo is more than likely going to have to take two or three to land one. And two or three heavy punches from Alvarez will cause problems for el Perro. I doubt this one god past the 10th no matter who wins.

I need the video, too, bro! Tell ya what, I’ll replace the Showtime audio with you, but that’s only if JK does the color and you allow Robert and Busta J to call in with special guest insights!! what do ya say??!

Joseph Herron

If you change your mind, brother….I’m going to be calling the action as it happens in the ring on Saturday night!!

You catch it here on ESB…or by calling 718-506-1506, you can check it out on your mobile!!

Such a good analysis this cheap skate has now decided to buy!!

My share of the profit will probably afford Oscar another pair of those fishnet stalkings and other apparel that Te Tumbo appreciates so much when he visits the GoldenBoy mansion!!

Its really too bad that freak injury happened to angulo. he was clearly the better guy in the ring. lara got PUMMELED. I hope angulo is getting good money for this bout and i hope it sells well. its really good matchup and there will be FIREWORKS GURANTEED.

Posted March 6, 2014 5:16 am 


BEARS

let me say this though. i like both these guys. i like alfredo angulo personally. i was rooting for him against kirkland and lara. i say may the best man win this fight and good luck to both.

Posted March 6, 2014 4:53 am 


BEARS

I think canelo is gonna totally outclass THE DOG angulo. This fight is gonna be lopsided. I dont think canelo will look anywhere near as vulnerable as lara and i think this will set up canelo vs lara in a BIG WAY!!! I will take canelo in that bout too!!! hunting down lara beating on him.

Of course as always you never know what will happen thats why they lace them up and fight but thats my projection. canelo win by stoppage

Hidalg0: “I also think that Alfredo needs to be careful about how many punches he takes in the first half of the fight. If he gets injured seriously enough, the fight could be stopped even if he doesn’t turn his back and walk away this time (referring to his fight with Lara, but no slight against Alfredo intended).”

If this fight were taking place in the UK, I would agree…LOL

“if Canelo can’t hurt him does he have the stamina and durability to hang with Angulo for 12 busy rounds? ”

No kidding. I also think that Alfredo needs to be careful about how many punches he takes in the first half of the fight. If he gets injured seriously enough, the fight could be stopped even if he doesn’t turn his back and walk away this time (referring to his fight with Lara, but no slight against Alfredo intended).

No matter who wins though, I’m rootin’ for Angulo.

Posted March 6, 2014 1:46 am 


Joseph Herron

I think the key for Canelo in this fight is to attack Angulo’s body early and slow down his aggression and punch output. If he can’t earn his respect early, it’s going to be trouble for Canelo in the back half of the fight.

Lara thumbed Angulo in that fight, it’s rare to see a fighter quit like that otherwise. I’m a huge Angulo fan but have deep respect for Canelo, he’s just young I think. This is not a fight we want to leave to the judges. Sometimes they get it wrong. wink wink.

Posted March 5, 2014 11:45 pm 


te tumbo

Btw, that loss v. Lara was brutal. that fight was up for grabs, Lara was wilting, and momentum was on Angulo’s side.

Posted March 5, 2014 11:32 pm 


te tumbo

Canelo has no choice but to turn Angulo’s relentless, hard-charging style to his advantage. it’s not as if Angulo isN’T going to gut- and chin-check Canelo early. Canelo will need to turn the tables on Angulo with explosive and debilitating bursts. otherwise, bursts aren’t going to cut it and if Angulo makes it to the second half, it becomes a different fight-game. the question becomes: if Canelo can’t hurt him does he have the stamina and durability to hang with Angulo for 12 busy rounds? I don’t think he’ll have too. if Kirkland was able to punch Angulo out, I think Canelo will too for a solid perhaps even impressive win. of course then the story will be that Angulo was never that good (oh brother).

Thank you, brother Hidalg0!!

I can’t say much about this right now, but keep your fingers crossed that another fight doesn’t get scratched from Saturday night’s fight card!!

Joseph, outstanding preview, analysis, and video. I especially like the inset videos of Angulo and Alvarez while you and Rick were talking. Rick broke things down nicely and I think his analysis was pretty much spot on.
Really a fine job Joseph.

Thanks, Bustajay!!

I’m really looking forward to it as well. I love calling fights and it’s a real passion of mine.

I just hope this match-up is as drama filled as I think it’s going to be.

Dimelo73: “This 411 sessions are very good. I never heard of
Mr. Morones Jr before but I think you should have him more often. He makes very insightul and objective observations.”

Rick Morones is one of the best young trainers in boxing, who has been recognized by Mike Stafford, Floyd Jr, and Paulie Malignaggi.

Rick has passion and truly cares about all of his young fighters…Benjamin Whitaker, Kendo Castaneda, and Felipe Castaneda are just of few of his talented stable of young prospects.

Thanks for watching the “Boxing 411″…and don’t forget to subscribe!!

Excellent as always Joseph
I expect Angulo to test the chin much more than Floyd.
I hope you and JK call this rd by rd because I am not buying this PPV

After what the judges did to Trout, no way you wanna leave this in the hands of the judges.

dave: “I’ve never seen Canelo near being Hurt or K.O.’d. El Perro has been down I do believe and has some history of being cut. I think if it’s a close fight politics are going to give it to Canelo.”

This is where the subjectivity of the sport will really be a factor.

If the fight fans and the fighters don’t have the benefit of the clean KO on Saturday night, will the judges prefer the more sporadic but explosive punch output of Canelo Alvarez?

Or will they prefer to see the high volume aggression of Alfredo Angulo?

Both will be effective in spots, but it’s difficult to say which style the judges will prefer.

But if I’m Virgil Hunter, I’m looking to get Angulo to press Canelo in the back half of the fight, when history has shown the young explosive puncher fade down the stretch, and go for the decisive KO in the mid to late rounds.

I wouldn’t want to leave this one in the hands of the judges if I were Alfredo.
