Former IBF cruiserweight king Yoan Pablo Hernandez (29-2) plans to continue his career despite the upset loss to Kevin Johnson in his comeback fight in August after six years out.
Hernandez will for his next fight again be trained by Ulli Wegner, who worked with Yoan Pablo during his days as champion.
However, it must be said that Hernandez also had a stamina and / or conditioning problem for the better part of his career and it was evident against "Kingpin" Johnson that moving up to heavyweight didn't help this problem.
Hernandez' next fight is set for November 21 in Magdeburg on an SES promotion.
