Golden Boy Promotions announced that it has expanded its stable of exciting young boxers by signing noted brawler Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo.  A boxer who fights in the classic Mexican warrior tradition, Angulo's aggressive style and knockout power make him a must-see competitor in the junior middleweight division.

"I always want to give the fans a great show and I work hard to get to my goal of retiring as a world champion," said Angulo, a former interim WBO and WBC Continental Americas junior middleweight champion.  "I believe Golden Boy Promotions is the right company to further my career and achieve my goals in boxing.  I can't wait to become Golden Boy's next world champion."

"There are a handful of fighters who always deliver excitement whenever they're in the ring and Alfredo Angulo is certainly one of those select few," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.  "Alfredo has already accomplished a lot in this sport, but at 29, there's much left for him to accomplish and we're going to be with him every step of the way as he moves from being a star to being a superstar."

A native of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Alfredo Angulo (19-1, 16 KO's) is a 2004 Mexican Olympian, who previously was promoted by Gary Shaw.   Shaw and Angulo recently reached a settlement, paving the way for Angulo to make his jump over to Golden Boy Promotions.

A relentless pressure fighter, Angulo has earned knockout wins in his last four fights, with respected veteran Joel Julio included among his list of victims.  His lone career loss was via decision to Kermit Cintron in 2009, where Angulo appeared slow and sluggish after apparently suffering the effects of a head cold.

Angulo has not fought since July 2010.
