Alfredo Angulo 'close' to December 15 fight with Delvin Rodriguez on Khan vs Molina card

Esther Lin/SHOWTIME

Alfredo 'El Perro' Angulo could be back on December 15, as he's reportedly close to signing a fight against Delvin Rodriguez, which would be part of Showtime's Khan vs Molina card.

BoxingScene.com's Ryan Maquinana reports this evening that a deal is "close" for Alfredo Angulo to return to the ring on December 15, facing Delvin Rodriguez on the Khan vs Molina card at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, live on Showtime.

Angulo (21-2, 18 KO) returned to the ring on November 10 after over a year off, much of which was due to his time spent in an ICE detention center in California for the bulk of 2012. It was an emotional comeback, as he knocked out Raul Casarez in just 57 seconds, with a huge fan reaction at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The easy night in the ring means he's available for a quick turnaround, and the December 15 date could use more fights. Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14 KO) hasn't fought since June 2, when he lost wide in a very disappointing bout against WBA junior middleweight titlist Austin Trout, which also aired on Showtime.

Rodriguez has done well in the past for entertainment purposes against more hard-charging, come-forward fighters, including his 2011 Fight of the Year war with Pawel Wolak. Angulo is a more ferocious puncher than Wolak, but Rodriguez is a good test for where Angulo is at in this comeback, and getting two fights in this year would be huge for Alfredo, without a doubt.

The quick turnaround would also work well for his camp, as both Angulo and Khan are now trained by Virgil Hunter.
