Alfredo Angulo promises a good show against crafty Erislandy Lara on June 8

Jeff Gross

Alfredo Angulo won't make a prediction for the outcome, but says he's going to give the fans the usual good show they get out of him when he faces Erislandy Lara on June 8.

Rugged Mexican brawler Alfredo Angulo is known for delivering action, while June 8 opponent Erislandy Lara quite frankly is not. In a clash of styles on June 8, part of Showtime's Maidana-Lopez undercard, Angulo says he'll deliver his usual good fight to the fans:

"I don't like to give predictions about any fights. But the one thing that I always know is that the fans are going to get a great show. The fans are going to get to see some great fighting that night."

Angulo (22-2, 18 KO) labored a bit against Jorge Silva in December, the last time Angulo fought, but Silva's a tough fighter who took some big blows and gave some back, too, and Angulo still probably hadn't totally shaken off the rust from a long absence that wasn't just him sitting on the sidelines, but included a lengthy stay at an ICE detention center in California.

The 30-year-old Angulo is limited, and everyone knows that. It's not hard to imagine Lara (17-1-2, 11 KO) showing up and boxing his ears off, cruising to a decision win where Angulo just can't get out of the starting blocks. But the Cuban is inconsistent, too; though he looked terrific against Paul Williams in a robbery loss in 2011, he hasn't been nearly as impressive against other "quality opponents," Carlos Molina and Vanes Martirosyan, a pair of draws.

Who do you like in this one, and do you think Angulo can force the entertainment and make fans happy?
