Juan Urango Returning After Two Years on April 26th

By Miguel Rivera

Former junior welterweight champion Juan Urango (22-3-1, 17KOs), 31-years-old, will return to the ring on April 26th in Mexico City. The strong Colombian puncher has been inactive for two years. He was last seen on March 6, 2010 - when Devon Alexander knocked him out in the eight round of a unification bout. In his first fight back, Urango will face Cristian Chavez (23-18, 11KOs). In his recent fights, Chavez has been fighting around 147, which may or may not be Urango's weight for the contest.
