Carlos Negron is Planning a Return To Cruiserweight

By Rey Colon

The experiment with former Olympian Carlos Negrón (13-1, 9 KO's) as a heavyweight is now over. The experiment became history when the tall 6'6 heavyweight was knocked out on September 2 by veteran Colombian Epifanio Mendoza (32-12-1, 28 KO's) in just three rounds.

"He's going back to cruiserweight. We are going to have a meeting next week to discuss our future plans with him," said Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing Promotions.
