Carlos Negron Returns on Feb. 3, Back at Cruiserweight

By Rey Colon

Carlos Negron (13-1 and 9KOs) will reprise his career in 2012 by returning to the cruiserweight division, where the fighter hopes become world champion while promising to train in the United States in order to secure better sparring. Negron, standing at 6'6, admits that despite his height, his physique is not the traditional full-span of a heavyweight, which leaves him at a disadvantage against the 'mastodons' weighing 240 pounds onwards.

"I felt like I was inflated. I will return on February 3 at a function in San Sebastian (Puerto Rico) at 200 pounds. In addition, there are plans to train in U.S. for sparring and to further develop myself as a boxer. We're discussing the possibility of winning a regional title this year," Negron said.

his promoter & WBO are nursing him as the only decent bout/opponent he had he lost...I've seen him 3x live & he doesn't have it...even w/a gargantuan reach he lacks 2 much in 2 many areas...how's he ever make PR…

I've had the DIS-pleasure of seeing him in "action" on a few occasions. He's really a good kid, polite and humble, but he's in the WRONG profession. In his case boxing should be no more than just a HOBBY, nothing…
