Alfredo Angulo: At 160, I’m a different animal
ALFREDO ANGULO, Middleweight Contender
“I’m ready for this fight at 160, I’m ready to get back to winning.
“Whenever two Mexicans are in the ring it’s a really good show. I believe De La Rosa and ‘El Perro’ will put on a great show.
“At the 160-pound weight division, I am going to be a different animal. You’re going to see the old Alfredo Angulo.
“I’m going to show the fans, the critics and the media that I am ready.
“People are asking me if I am still going to have the power at 160 pounds, I don’t like to talk, I would rather just show it in the ring on Saturday.
“You can expect a spectacular fight. James De La Rosa is coming to win and so am I but I am the only one that is going to walk out victorious.”
JAMES DE LA ROSA, Middleweight Contender
“Come Saturday I’m looking to put on a show for everyone.
“You all haven’t seen my skills but I know you’re going to enjoy the fight.
“I just come out to fight and nothing else matters. After this fight, everyone will become a De La Rosa fan.
“You’ll see everything out of me. I can do everything. I box, jab, punch, and knock out opponents when the opportunity presents itself.
“I always go in looking for the win. If a knockout comes it comes. The W is all that ever matters.
“After this fight everyone will know about me and my skills. Not everyone gets an opportunity to open up a card as big as this. I’m going to put on a show and make a statement.
“The reason I took this fight is because it’s an opportunity to display my skills. It’s my time now.
“I’m the most versatile fighter. Whatever benefits me to win at that moment is what you’ll see me do.”
