MEMO Capture

By Chris Robinson

This fight week in Las Vegas, we crossed paths with strength and conditioning coach Angel “Memo” Heredia.

Heredia works with top Cuban contender Yordenis Ugas, who faces off with unbeaten former champion Omar Figueroa Jr. on Saturday night at the the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Ugas vs. Figueroa will serve as a key undercard attraction to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Keith Thurman FOX Sports pay per view show.

On March 17 of this year, highly-regarded prospect Felix Verdejo suffered a shocking upset loss at the hands of Antonio Lozada Jr. in New York. Verdejo, an accomplished amateur from Puerto Rico who is signed to Top Rank, was looked at by some as the next big star to come from his island.

Instead, the 25-year old found himself in a dog fight with the unheralded Lozada inside of The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Verdejo wasn’t strong enough to keep Lozada off of him and was knocked down by a left hook in the 10th round and saw the contest waved off moments later after he was having trouble defending himself.

On Saturday, May 6, former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will play the role of underdog when he faces off with fellow Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. in an HBO pay per view attraction.

Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KO’s) and Canelo (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) figure to give fireworks, and with the match taking place at a catch weight of 164.5 pounds, there are those intrigued whether or not Junior can make the weight. It’s been over four years, dating back to Sept. of 2012 when he faced Sergio Martinez, that Chavez has weighed under 165 pounds.

In recent weeks, we have noticed Heredia out here in Las Vegas working with several fighters, including the likes of WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack, former world champion Ishe Smith, the fighting Kameda brothers from Japan, as well as Juan Carlos Velasquez and his twin Carlos Ivan.

According to a report from Ben Thompson of FightHype.com this past week, WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is considering the addition of a new strength and conditioning coach to his team ahead of his September return to the ring.

Alvarez is coming off of his biggest win as a professional on April 20th, as he defeated a very determined Austin Trout over twelve competitive rounds inside of the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Despite the victory, Alvarez seemed to slow down over the second half of the fight, with his work rate noticeably dipping.

One of the men said to be in consideration by Alvarez is the controversial Angel Heredia, who confirmed the reports.

“I’ve been getting a lot of calls from several people in Mexico,” Heredia would tell me recently. “But they didn’t specify exactly what the whole situation was. At this point, yeah, I’m assuming that he’s looking for a conditioning coach. I know that people from Mexico have been calling me and have been leaving a few messages, but nothing concrete.”
