Breazeale vs. Negron Set for Charlo Brothers Undercard

By Ryan Burton

Earlier this week it was announced that WBC interim middleweight champion Jermall Charlo will face former title challenger Willie Monroe and his twin brother Jermell will defend his WBC super welterweight title against Tony Harrison on December 22nd.

The venue hosting the event will be the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

The fight card will kick off Premier Boxing Champions new output deal with FOX. A coin flip tomorrow at the kick off press conference will determine which fight will serve as the main event.

Jay Jimenez, who is best known for being the manager of heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz, has advised that his newest signee, Carlos Negron (20-1) will also appear on the televised portion of the card against former title challenger Dominic Breazeale (19-1).

Negron was a 2008 Olympian who represented his native Puerto Rico in Beijing, China.

“Carlos is very excited for this fight. He is very motivated and will put on one hell of a performance,” Jimenez told

Negrón last fought in June, 2017 when he stopped Derric Rossy in 4 rounds. Breazeale has been out of the ring since last November when he knocked out Eric Molina in the 8th stanza.

Breazeale, who is the mandatory contender for Deontay Wilder’s WBC title, got his big break in 2016 when he suffered his only professional defeat against WBA/WBO/IBO champion Anthony Joshua. At the time Joshua only held the IBF and he stopped Breazeale in 7 rounds.

Breazeale is not very good but he is a tough guy who has some power. Against another big lumbering guy who has questionable toughness he should win. Keep in mind Breazeale is not really that good, and it is heavyweight…

[QUOTE=Boksfan;19222386]I don't think there's any point putting money on Breazeale here, this guy he's fighting is very low level journeyman, he might (and should) stop him in 1 round. Don't think odds will be any good for a mismatch.[/QUOTE] Not…

Can't see Negron lasting more than 3 or 4 here.

[QUOTE=PotentialToast;19222659]Breazeale can't risk his eliminator status. Hopefully, we will see some good elimator fights in 2019 as AJ is stacked until 2020 (Whyte, Pulev / T Fury). Wilder doesn't want it.[/QUOTE] LMFAO!! I see you are another brainwashed victim of…
