Angulo ready for Alcine

Big Joe Miranda

By Francisco Salazar

No one would argue with the statement that interim Super Welterweight titleholder Alfredo Angulo is one of the top fighters in his weight class.

Just ask his last opponent, Joel Julio. Angulo will face another strong challenger on Saturday night, as he faces former world title holder Joachim Alcine in a world title eliminator fight at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Jacobs, Pirov ready for title fight

Neither Daniel Jacobs (20-0, 17 KOs), of Brooklyn, or Dmitry Pirog (16-0, 13 KOs), of Russia, feel their WBO world middleweight title fight on July 31 has been rushed. “It’s not like I’m ready for this situation,” said Jacobs, during a teleconference held today. “Initially, my choice would’ve been to fight for a title when I was 17-0, but that’s a boxer’s standpoint.”

“It’s not a problem at all,” agreed Pirov. “We both have a lot of amateur experience. Both of us have the skills and the right previous opposition.”

Showing mutual respect toward one another, both fighters claimed they would be victorious on the 31st. “I don’t see anything that can stop me,” said Jacobs. “He’s a good fighter, but he doesn’t represent the same skills or speed I have – he just doesn’t match up to me.”

“I may be an underdog, but I am not worried,” said Pirov. “American judges and fans are the most developed and if you give your best, and fight well, everything will be fair. Nothing is going to happen that will disappoint me.”

Stay tuned for a full report tomorrow.
