From BoxingScene.com:

Promoter Gary Shaw has informed BoxingScene.com that former two-division champion Ricardo Mayorga has withdrawn from his February 14 bout with unbeaten junior middleweight prospect Alfredo Angulo

Shaw tells BoxingScene that as soon as he heard Mayorga was pulling out, he began working around the clock to secure a suitable replacement.

"I am working on getting someone right now. We have to be careful with switching up an opponent with only twelve-days notice. I would fight Cornelius Bundrage. I would fight Alfonso Gomez. There are a few other names," Shaw said.

Additional comments by SC:

I'm sure that Shaw (Angulo's promoter) would gladly put Bundrage or Gomez in there, because neither of them are a a threat to Angulo, particularly Gomez. Bundrage is the better fight there, but we're talking about what was supposed to be an HBO main event. I'd assume Campbell-Funeka will move up to main event status, with Angulo's fight bumped down, potentially to the televised opener, given that Martinez-Cintron is a better fight than what Shaw will be able to find on 11 days' notice.

This is also hardly surprising, given that Mayorga no-showed the promotional event in Florida last week. One wonders (1) if Mayorga is anywhere close to in shape and (2) if Ricardo simply got cold feet.
