Fighters competing on Saturday night’s Spike card took part in a media workout Wednesday at RCVA Gym in Costa Mesa to officially begin fight week before they step into the ring at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Among those on hand were exciting middleweight brawler Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo and his opponent Freddy “Riel” Hernandez, who meet in a ten round clash.
Alfredo Angulo: “I have the same hunger and passion that I had in the beginning of my career. ‘The Dog’ was asleep for a couple of years but he’s woken up now. Right now the only goal is to win this Saturday. I’m hoping that next year I can contend and fight for a world title. I have always fought the toughest fighters and I’ve never been afraid of a challenge. I feel strong and my weight is good. I hope my opponent had a great training camp. I want him to be at his best so that we can put on a great show for the fans. We are both tough Mexican fighters so you can expect us to stand and throw punches.”
Freddy Hernandez: “I had a good training camp and I’m going to surprise people in this fight. I know that I need a victory here to continue fighting at a high level. Everyone knows my style and everyone knows Angulo’s style. We both like to throw punches and we fight with our hearts. It’s going to make it a great fight Saturday night. I feel very strong at this weight and I think I have more to give to this sport. I’m going to leave my soul in the ring. I’m looking to hurt Angulo.”
The card is headlined by former multiple division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero taking on Argentine slugger David Emanuel “El Pirata” Peralta in welterweight action.
