Cintron shocked many with his upset of highly touted and then unbeaten contender Alfredo Angulo in his last bout this past May which was a WBC light middleweight title eliminator. Cintron will now drop back down to welterweight against Ramos. Cintron was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico where he lived until he was a teenager at which point he moved to Pennsylvania. Cintron has never fought in Puerto Rico as a professional.
