Quillin and former IBF super middleweight champ Caleb Truax were scheduled to do battle next week for a shot at Caleb Plant. It would have been a rematch of their April clash that ended in a No Contest after two rounds, thanks to Truax getting badly cut from an accidental headbutt.
Truax, however, was forced to withdraw from the bout earlier this week due to a torn Achilles he is still rehabbing.
Quillin now looks to keep active and compete in his fourth bout at super middleweight. After losing a WBA title fight to Daniel Jacobs in December 2015, Quillin did not compete until his 168-pound debut in September 2017. Since then, he’s scored decision wins over Dashon Johnson and J’Leon Love before the No Contest against Truax.
Angulo is 5-6 in his last 11 bouts, most recently competing in April, when he scored a knockout of Evert Bravo. Losses in this span for Angulo, a former interim WBO super welterweight champion, have come against the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Erislandry Lara and Sergio Mora.
