Cosme Rivera steps in to fight Alfredo Angulo

Alfredo Angulo has his third scheduled opponent for Saturday, and for the second time I think we have to give Gary Shaw a little kudos (painful though it may be) for finding someone credible.

Former welterweight championship challenger Cosme Rivera (31-11-2, 22 KO) has stepped into the void to face junior middleweight prospect Alfredo Angulo (14-0, 11 KO) in Rivera's first ever fight above 147 pounds.

Rivera having the guts to take a fight like this on four days' notice is admirable, and though it's likely he gets run over, he's provided some resistance to star fighters in recent years. He gave Joel Julio a stiff test in 2006, and followed that up by taking Andre Berto all 10 rounds, even knocking Berto down in the sixth round.

Angulo-Rivera is a far cry from Angulo-Mayorga, so let's once again say, "Screw you, Mayorga." Fun, isn't it?
