Negron Claims Promotional Beef, Eyes Cruiser Return

By "Mr. Boxing" Giancarlo Oquendo

The Puerto Rican cruiserweight Carlos Negron has not fought since March of 2012. The reasons, according to fighter is that his career suffered from bad decisions made by his current promoter PR Best Boxing. Negron has a record of 14 wins and one defeat with 10 of his victories by knockout.

Negron, who maintains his training schedule, is anxious to return to the ring but this time as a cruiserweight and not as a heavyweight, because he climbed to heavyweight simply for business reasons.

"I will return as cruiserweight, not at heavyweight - where I fought for business reasons because of the promoter and had to always eat to keep increasing weight," Negron.

On his current situation of his promotional contract:

"Since the contract has not expired, they have made bad decisions with my carreer. We tried to leave but we couldn't," Negron said.

We tried to get a statement from PR Best Boxing but were unsuccessful.

I remember people were saying this guy was going to be a future P4P boxer and the nerve that he will give Wlad a run for his money. Gotta love it when nationalistic nuthuggers are wrong. :lol1:

You lost because of your lack of defense.
