Photos: Jose Gonzalez, McJoe Arroyo Win, Negron KO'd

Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico - In a bout for the WBO Latino lightweight title, Jose Gonzalez (17-0, 13KOs) knocked out Eddie Soto (12-3, 4KOs) at 1:10 of the first round. Soto was decked hard on his back with a big right hand.

Upset minded Epifanio Mendoza (33-12, 28 KOs), who started his career at junior middleweight, knocked out previously undefeated heavyweight prospect Carlos Negron (13-1, 9 KOs). Mendoza badly hurt Negron at the end of the second round, but the Puerto Rican boxer was saved by the bell. In the third, Mendoza dropped him twice to finish him off at 2:03 into the round.

Bantamweight prospect McJoe Arroyo (8-0, 5 KOs) returned for the first time after rehabing an injury to his jaw, and destroyed Ivan Moxey(2-6, 1 KO) in less than a minute of the first round.

Negron was just knocked out by a washed up Middleweight. A WASHED UP MIDDLEWEIGHT! Don't expect anything out of a heavyweight that gets knocked out by a washed up Middleweight. As far as being a contender, that will never happen.…
