Alfredo Angulo López (born August 11, 1982) is a Mexican professional boxer who held the WBO interim light middleweight title from 2009 to 2010. As an amateur he represented Mexico at the 2004 Olympics, reaching the first round of the middleweight bracket. Nicknamed "El Perro" ("The Dog"), Angulo was a highly regarded light middleweight prospect in the late 2000s and early 2010s, and is particularly known for his relentless pressure fighting style and formidable punching power.
He qualified for the Olympic Games by ending up in second place at the 1st AIBA American 2004 Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tijuana, Mexico. At the Olympics Angulo lost to Andy Lee, by a score of 38:23. Angulo also has an amateur win over former WBO Welterweight champion Timothy Bradley. Angulo ended his amateur career with a record of 80-15.
Alfredo Angulo is an all-action fighter, who turned professional in Arizona. The Mexican was considered by many boxing analysts to be the next Light Middleweight World Champion. On May 17, 2008, he defeated Richard Gutierrez inside of five rounds to take his professional record to 13 wins, 10 by way of knockout. On October 4, 2008, Angulo defeated Ukraine's Andrey Tsurkan (26-3, 17 KO). Angulo, from the beginning of the round was relentless, averaging over 100 punches per round. He stopped Tsurkan in the 11th round when referee Tony Krebs stepped in. Angulo was scheduled to fight former champion Ricardo Mayorga on February 14, 2009. However, Mayorga pulled out ten days before the fight after demanding a larger purse. Angulo fought former NABO light Welterweight champion Cosme Rivera as a replacement and defeated him by fifth-round technical knockout.
WBO interim junior middleweight champion
In November 2009 Angulo defeated an undefeated Harry Joe Yorgey to claim the interim WBO light middleweight title.
Although Angulo finished off Yorgey in the third round, he scored a knockdown in the second round while landing 58 of 108 punches (according to CompuBox). A huge right hand did the initial damage as he hurt Yorgey against the ropes. But Angulo did not let him off the hook and continued to pound away for the knockout win.
First title defense
Angulo knocked out Joel Julio in the 11th round of their bout on April 24, 2010. Angulo stopped Joel Julio with a right cross midway through the 11th round to retain the WBO interim 154-pound title. Angulo earned his third straight KO victory after his only defeat against Kermit Cintron last May. Angulo was slightly more aggressive than the counterpunching Julio, consistently attacking and peppering the Colombian with combinations, including a nasty series of blows in the eighth round.

He stopped the New Mexico-based journeyman in the first round with a straight right-left hook to the midsection followed by a cuffing right cross to the back of the head. Angulo's visa problems, prevented him from fighting in the U.S., made the beef with Shaw a moot point.
