Alfredo Angulo faces James De La Rosa

Alfredo Angulo is getting a chance at redemption on perhaps the biggest stage today.

Angulo (22-4, 18 KOs), who is riding on back-to-back knockout losses will face James De La Rosa, Sept. 13, on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana.

Both of Angulo’s KO losses were in the 10th round. Canelo Alvarez finished him back in March. Back in June 2013 he lost to Erislandy Lara.

Angulo said he’s been anxious to return to the ring since the Canelo loss.

“I’m ready to get back on the winning track and this is a great opportunity for me to do that in front of the world on Mexican Independence Day weekend. This fight could not be more critical for my future in this sport and I want to put on a great show for the fans.”

De La Rosa (22-2, 13 KOs), a 26-year-old Mexican fighter currently residing in San Benito, Texas. He has won two of his last four fights, including a seventh-round TKO loss against Fabian Reyes.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for me to make my name on a huge stage against a fellow Mexican-warrior in Alfredo Angulo. On Sept. 13 I’m going to teach an old dog some new tricks.”
