In a huge upset, former jr middleweight-turned-heavyweight Epifanio Mendoza (33-12, 28 KOs) scored a spectacular third round KO over previously unbeaten Olympian Carlos Negrón (13-1, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Mendoza had the 6’6 Negron hurt and ready to go when the bell rang to end round two. Mendoza was then all over him in round three, flooring Negron twice. Time was 2:03.
Mendoza is no stranger to knocking out unbeaten fighters having taken the ‘O’ from Tokunbo Olajide (2002), and Rubin Williams (2003), however at age 35, a career high weight of 207.6 lbs. and a loser of eight of his last eleven, this result was quite unexpected. more photos

Former world champion Eric Morel, who was tentatively scheduled to face WBA bantamweight “super” champion Anselmo Moreno on October 15 and then on November 5, has set his sights on WBA “regular” champion Koki Kameda since it appears that Moreno will have to deal problems with the WBA and therefore his planned defense defense Morel will be off. “Moreno has a dispute with his manager and we are very sad about it,” said Morel’s father/trainer Cyril Morel. “We wanted that fight. It seems that the WBA will make Koki Kameda a super champion and we have no problem with a Kameda fight if he wants. We told our promoter (Golden Boy) and the WBA that we would fight Goliath or King Kong….Eric is available. We want to fight for the title. We already had targeted Moreno who is a very good and unbeaten but we don’t know what the WBA will do. We’ll fight against any bantamweight champion.”

WBC President José Sulaimán: “I feel tremendously impacted by the declarations of our former champion of the world, Oscar de la Hoya, and I understand the terrible depression through which he recently lived. But at the same time, we are very pleased to see that Oscar is turning into an example for the youth of the world by expressing the terribly damaging effects of alcohol and the cancer of our contemporary society, drugs, as well as his struggle and efforts to find rehabilitation to defeat such a dangerous rival, as he is already doing. Only great champions like Oscar have the will of a tiger to confront evil and defeat it, just as he is doing today, to strengthen his image of idolatry. The WBC strongly stays in his corner, just as we have always done with all other boxing heroes that have defeated such a terrible cancer.”
