Hopkins set the standard for mastering his weight and made it look easy by living clean, remaining fit, and not blowing up between fights. however, upon closer scrutiny what became apparent is the degree of personal sacrifice needed to master one’s weight. whether he likes it or not, Angulo is faced with this predicament. on the bright side(?). he’s got a running start having recently dealt with the deprivation of being “detained” but his ability to remain deprived may very well decide whether he’ll ever dominate at 154lbs. otherwise, a sluggish/dehydrated Angulo is target practice for any top-notch middle or Cotto.

You’re right about that, Tumbo…that was Gary Shaw’s big trepidation concerning Angulo’s future.

Angulo is a skilled and aggressive puncher but i’ve also seen him arrive in less than peak fighting condition. IMO, 154lbs is a tough fit for him and 160lbs isn’t an option. he either masters that weight or risk a couple more sluggish and devastating losses.

I agree, Varnish…I hope to see the best of both men on Saturday night!! Should be the most action filled fight of the evening.

Angulo looked like something was wrong going into the Cintron fight. His expression always suggested to me that he didn’t like boxing very much, but obviously it was the biggest talent he had. Hope the beat down from Kirkland didn’t take too much out of him, because he can flat-out fight

lol…that’s great stuff, 1-Ton!! To me, Angulo is starting to look like one of the Foo Fighters. Either that or he’s auditioning for the new Geico commercials…lol!!

Maybe it was just me, because I’ve never heard anyone else discuss it, but in the Kirkland fight, I thought El Perro looked under-trained and weight drained. I am intereseted to see how he performs this time around. Anyone else see recent photos of him? He’s looking like Ben Affleck in Argo right now. Pretty funny.

Trading w El Perro, unless you have power like Kirkland, seems like a bad idea. Hope it is a good fight though.

The surprisingly soft-spoken and likable Perro has been collared for the past eight months in the El Centro Detention Center in El Centro, California after he overstayed his U.S. visa, but some think he was the victim of a bureaucratic nightmare that would have brought a lesser man to his knees.

The Dog has stayed in shape in detention by playing handball and doing manual labor;

Thank you, Robert. I agree. Raul can do it, but will he? Raul is fearless, but that could prove to be a real hinderance in this fight. If he listens to James Gogue and can think for all ten rounds, then he has a decent chance of pulling off the upset.

It’s going to be interesting to see how both men react to intense pressure. This is going to be a great fight!!
