    U.S. Immigration KOs Alfredo Angulo | ProBoxing-Fans.com

    More comments can be found here: Alfredo Angulo's U.S. Career Crumbles, HBO Walks - Boxing News (doesn't seem to allow copy and pasting of the article).

    That's a pretty poor fall from grace right there. I lost of a lot of respect for Angulo when he ducked Martinez but I still wouldn't wish this (self-inflicted) ill on him.

    What is it with 154lbs prospects? Kirkland ends up in the slammer and has only just got out and Angulo's built some real momentum after the Cintron bout and now this...

    Wow, how could this happen. It's too bad, first declining a fight with Martinez, now his us boxing career possibly over. Sad.

    I just don't see this incident as a reason for him to never be allowed to fight in the U.S. again. Guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Angulo asked for a fair price vs. Martinez.. that's not ducking..

    I hope to every god ever invented that Angulo, my favorite fighter in the world, doesn't get derailed by legal mumbo jumbo.. he's improving quickly..so much potential

    Angulo is a good fighter to watch, on a steady climb to the top, with hbo backing him. What sucks is, immigration is such a sensitive issue right now, they will go hard on him.

    They should go hard on him. He was living here illegally. His is an illegal immigrant. He should be forced to give back all the money he earned here because it was earned illegally. He isn't allowed to work in the US. That money is not his. It was illegally gotten.

    Jesus Christ Kirkland...

    With all the issues around him actually getting his spot in the halfway house you'd think he'd do everything in his power to make his transition from prison as seamless as possible.

    His lack of thought here doesn't seem remarkably different to the lack of thought that went into him getting guns in the first place.

    For all her sins do you think Wolfe would have let him waltz off like that?

    Damm, first Kirkland (at least he's back) and now Angulo? who's next?

    Surely Kirkland and Angulo where on a collision course, even with Kirkland getting out, but now this.

    Hope everything gets worked out

    The plot thickens.

    First, Angulo himself speaks saying this is somewhat of a storm in a teacup and that HBO might be mad at him because he ducked out of a fight with Martinez because he thought $750,000 wasn't enough money for him;

    Alfredo Angulo: Deportation Tales Are a Smear Campaign! - Boxing News

    But then the fun stuff comes out as Gary Shaw accuses Top Rank of setting the whole thing up so that Arum wasn't forced to match Cotto and Perro:

    Gary Shaw Claims Top Rank Ratted Alfredo Angulo Out - Boxing News

    (Sorry, can't seem to paste from boxingscene).

    This story could well have legs...
