He's the 6'6 guy from PR, no?

I vaguely remember seeing him in the amateurs, he looked good. A bit skinny though, no?

Yep, he better use his height because the cruiserweight division holds more tough powerpunchers than any other division today. Marco Huck, Dennis Lebedev, Yoan Pablo Hernandez and Alexander Frenkel.

Those names may not ring well among average fans, but all those guys can crack and Negron better have himself some whiskers if he's gonna reign supreme.

do you rate afolabi too,or has he retired/reverted to chief sparring partner again?used to think he was terribly underrated,but perhaps he was always just a cinderella man...

He has some decent tools, but I think he's too slow and awkward to ever be "great".

lateef kayode is another heavy hitter, he's still in the prospect stages of his career but from what ive seen the guy has got cinder blocks at the end of his wrists.

Why would anyone want to be the future of Cruiserweight? Fight at Heavyweight you'll never get any recognition at cruiserweight.
