Saul Alvarez will fight Alfredo Angulo

Boxscore News reported Tuesday that Saul Alvarez will throw fists with Alfredo Angulo on March 8 at a venue to be determined.

The 23-year-old Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs), who plans to scrap three times in 2014, last vacated the squared circle on September 15 after getting universally outscored by Floyd Mayweather.

Although Alvarez didn’t perform poorly and consistently forced the action, Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) landed flush shots for 36 minutes that flustered and slowed the youngster.

Conversely, the 31-year-old Angulo (22-3, 18 KOs) suffered a brutal 10th round TKO defeat to Cuban Erislandy Lara in June.

Angulo, who competed for Mexico at the 2004 Summer Olympics and once trumped Timothy Bradley in an amateur bout, twice floored Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs).

However, the match was halted shortly after Lara connected with a savage blow that fractured Angulo’s left orbital bone.

Lara’s an exciting brawler who lacks fear and demands respect.

Regrettably for the former Olympian, Alvarez is a powerful bruiser whose punches land with resounding thuds.

Still capable of maturing into an elite pugilist, it’s hard to envision that the fierce redhead will lose consecutive contests.

Plus, considering the severity of Angulo’s recent wound, Alvarez is likely way too potent for the older Mexican.

Ultimately, expect Saul Alvarez to capitalize on Alfredo Angulo’s aggressiveness and earn an empathic knockout within nine rounds approximately two months from this evening.
