Daniel Santos To Begin His Comeback on December 7

By Rey Colon

Daniel Santos, the former welterweight and junior middleweight champion, has not fought since losing the latter title by unanimous decision to Yuri Foreman in 2009 in New York. Santos, 38-years-old, is preparing to return to the ring on December 7 on a card being held at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, Bayamon, under the promotion of Anthony Rivera. Santos is an Olympic bronze medalist.

Coming into the fight with Foreman, Santos (32-4-1, 23 KO's) had issues dropping weight and killed himself to make 154-pounds. By the night of the fight he rose by 19-pounds and felt weak during the entire contest. However, the boxer from Bayamon is being given one last chance to return to stardom and is training hard for the December fight.
