Carlos Negron is Being Patient With His Heavyweight Run

By Rey Colon

The lanky heavyweight prospect from Puerto Rico, Carlos Negron, said he was ready for his first test on September 2, when he faces Colombian Epifanio Mendoza, a veteran fighter with a record of 31-12 and 27 knockouts. Negron, who began as a cruiserweight, says his body is maturing well in the heavyweight division.

"Mendoza has a lot of experience but I do not feel pressured and I don't expect to have problems. I trust my technique and skill," Negron said.

Negron, 6'6 and holding a record of 13-0 with nine knockouts, is likely going to weigh 215-pounds when he steps inside the ring with Mendoza. Negron is looking to fight again in October and then in November. He wants to shoot for a regional title in the near future but says there is no reason to rush for a shot at the world title.

"I'm still young [23-years-old]. There is no reason to hurry. As I get older, I'll add more weight and strength. By 2013, I will ready for some name opponents and at around 20-odd fights I could go for a major fight. All of that I will leave to my promoters but we will always be ready," Negron said.

The Rivera's are protecting him in the same way as JCC Jr...he's almost too tall w/ a decent punch...seen him several times but the oppposition has been so poor it's hard to see if his faults can be corrected...no furure…
