    I guess when it comes to Dogs, Angulo is a bitch. He prefers on beating up over-matched bums for chump change than taking on a real challenege.

    What happen to the days when Mexican fighters had all the glory? Now we're stuck with Victor "no heart" Ortiz, Antonio Margacheato, and Alfredo "the bitch" Angulo.

    Least we still got Juan Manuel Marquez.

    Bah.. you are taking the word of a promoter and jumping the gun.. promoters try to create pressure on fighters.. you don't know the facts yet..


    That said, I am a huge Angulo fan(my favorite fighter), but Martinez would beat him soundly at this point in his career..

    At a catch weight of 155 or 156 lbs? I'm so god damn tired of catch weights. What would have been the point of a catch weight fight here? I'm glad he turned it down.

    I wouldn't mind seeing that fight actually. Angulo knows he will probably lose, if you get outboxed by Kermit Cintron than the chances are slim to none that you can get a win over Sergio Martinez.

    Angulo would have got beat anyway but He still should have taken the fight.

    Martinez should offer to fight Dizzy next then, He is looking around for a dance partner.

    He has made improvements since then though..Joel Julio was moving and boxing much better than cintron was.. so he is making progress.. a fight with Sergio at this time might derail that progress by limiting his opportunities in the future..

    people got over the Cintron fight because Angulo was chasing him and hurting him in the last rounds.. a fight with Sergio would likely be a much wider margin loss and people wouldnt get over it..

    He's 20 fights in... let him mature and I think everyone will be impressed with what he becomes.

    Angulo v Cotto is the match that makes sense to me.

    Angulo is one of my favourite fighters to watch, mainly because my coach said he saw alot of similarities in our styles when he watched him fight the first time.

    Martinez would outbox him rather easily though. Rather see him fight Cotto or Martirosyan.

    Some top fighters are willing to headline a huge PPV for just a 40 thousand dollar payday; what's up with the 154 lb Angulo turning down 750 thousand dollars for a Title fight, Angulo's not even that much of a Draw.

    Sergio is being a bitch. Just fight Williams already or Pavlik. You left 154, now fight MWs.

    Pavlik opted out of a re-match with Martinez. I think P-Will is trying to make a run at 147. Martinez doesn't have many options.

    Well now he has Pirog, to try and unfi the belts again. Which make no sense cause they never should have strip him in the first place.

    That is another gift to Angulo actually. It would be for the middle weight title but Angulo wouldn't have to go much above 154. Pretty much a fantastic offer to Angulo.

    Victor Ortiz isn't Mexican..he was born and raised in the USA...in Kansas for that matter.

    Good move by Angulo. He's not ready for a fighter like Sergio, not even close.
