154-pound contender Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (16-1, 13 KOs) has moved his training camp from Coachella, Calif. to the Wayne, NJ home of his promoter Gary Shaw. Angulo takes on unbeaten Harry Joe Yorgey (22-0-1, 10 KOs) on the November 7th card at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. The headliner is the light heavyweight rematch between Chad Dawson and Glen Johnson. “Angulo wanted to get acclimated to the climate and the time difference early so I invited his team to stay with me for this phase of training camp,” said Shaw.
“I for one have benefited from this because I’m with him almost 24/7 when I’m in home, which has kept me on a dietary straight and narrow,” continued Gary. “In fact, the police stopped by the house yesterday because my local Dunkin’ Donuts filed a missing persons report! Seriously, it’s just good business. Why wouldn’t I do everything I could to help my fighter win? It was a no-brainer, plus, it’s been a lot of fun. My family has really enjoyed having them here and it’s made Angulo and me a little bit closer.”
Angulo stated, “I don’t know of any other promoter who would do this for his fighter. Gary knows this fight means everything to me and I didn’t want to leave anything to chance. Gary was kind enough to house my team to allow me to train early on the east coast. Harry Joe Yorgey is standing between me and a shot at a world title. On November 7, Yorgey won’t be standing at all when we meet in Hartford.”
