Alfredo Angulo López (born August 11, 1982) is a Mexican professional boxer who held the WBO interim junior middleweight title from 2009 to 2010. As an amateur he represented Mexico at the 2004 Olympics, reaching the first round of the middleweight bracket. Nicknamed "El Perro" ("The Dog"), Angulo was once a highly regarded prospect at junior middleweight, and is known particularly for his relentless pressure fighting style and formidable punching power.

Amateur career[edit]

He qualified for the Olympic Games by ending up in second place at the 1st AIBA American 2004 Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tijuana, Mexico.[1] At the Olympics Angulo lost to Andy Lee, by a score of 38:23.[2] Angulo also has an amateur win over WBO Welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.[3]

Professional career[edit]

Alfredo Angulo is an all-action fighter,[4] who turned professional in Arizona.[5] The Mexican was considered by many boxing analysts to be the next Light Middleweight World Champion. [6] On May 17, 2008, he defeated Richard Gutierrez inside of five rounds to take his professional record to 13 wins, 10 by way of knockout.[7] On October 4, 2008, Angulo defeated Ukraine's Andrey Tsurkan (26-3, 17 KO). Angulo, from the beginning of the round was relentless, averaging over 100 punches per round. He stopped Tsurkan in the 11th round when referee Tony Krebs stepped in.[8] Angulo was scheduled to fight former champion Ricardo Mayorga on February 14, 2009. However, Mayorga pulled out ten days before the fight after demanding a larger purse.[9] Angulo fought former NABO light Welterweight champion Cosme Rivera as a replacement and defeated him by fifth-round technical knockout.[10]

WBO interim junior middleweight champion[edit]

In November 2009 Angulo defeated an undefeated Harry Joe Yorgey to claim the interim WBO light middleweight title.[11]

Although Angulo finished off Yorgey in the third round, he scored a knockdown in the second round while landing 58 of 108 punches (according to CompuBox). A huge right hand did the initial damage as he hurt Yorgey against the ropes. But Angulo did not let him off the hook and continued to pound away for the knockout win.

First title defense[edit]

Angulo knocked out Joel Julio in the 11th round of their bout on April 24, 2010.[12] Angulo stopped Joel Julio with a right cross midway through the 11th round to retain the WBO interim 154-pound title. Angulo earned his third straight KO victory after his only defeat against Kermit Cintron last May. Angulo was slightly more aggressive than the counterpunching Julio, consistently attacking and peppering the Colombian with combinations, including a nasty series of blows in the eighth round.

Angulo vs. Alcine[edit]

According to Fight News, the WBO has ordered a title bout between then unbeaten current WBO light middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk (37-1, 23 KO's) and Angulo. The promoters for both Angulo and Dzinziruk have two weeks come up with an agreement for the fight. If not, then the fight will be brought up for a purse bid.[13] On July 17, 2010, Angulo scored a first round stoppage over former WBA Super Welterweight Champion Joachim "Ti-Joa" Alcine (32-1, 19 KOs) of Montreal.[14] Angulo won the vacant WBC Continental Americas Light Middleweight Title.[15]


On August 20, 2011 Angulo made quick work of Joseph Gomez for his first fight in 13 months. He stopped the New Mexico-based journeyman in the first round with a straight right-left hook to the midsection followed by a cuffing right cross to the back of the head.[16] Angulo's visa problems, prevented him from fighting in the U.S., made the beef with Shaw a moot point.[17]
