Mayorga vs. Angulo cancelled?
By Edgar Gonzalez
Fightnews.com was informed by inside sources that Ricardo Mayorga has withdrawn from his scheduled bout on February 14 against unbeaten junior middleweight prospect Alfredo Angulo. The fight was scheduled to take place at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Fightnews spoke directly with Angulo, but unfortunately he didnâ€™t know who he will face next nor did he know about â€œEl Matadorâ€ pulling out. Sources say Mayorga got hurt during training and promoter Gary Shaw is trying to replace Mayorga with a suitable opponent instead of canceling the fight. No comment from the Mayorga camp. Nate Campbell will be the main event as he defends his WBO/IBF lightweight title against Ali Funeka and Sergio Martinez will defend his WBC interim junior middleweight title against former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron. Sources say Alfonso Gomez might be the replacement but is not confirmed.
