Wizardry: Palacios Overcomes Layoff to Dominate Mendoza

Orlando, FL, September 23, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Cruiserweight star Francisco “Wizard” Palacios looked masterful in dominating hard-hitting contender Epifanio Mendoza of Colombia over eight rounds yesterday evening at the Mela Room in Orlando, FL.

Inactive for two years due to promotional difficulties, Palacios surprisingly showed no ring rust. Throughout the contest, the Orlando based Puerto Rican used his technical skills and ring generalship to control Mendoza.

Scores were 80-71 three times.

With the victory, Palacios, who co-promoted the card under the Worldwide Elite Entertainment banner, ups his professional ledger to 22-2 with 13 KO’s. Mendoza is now 39-19-1 (34 KO’s).

“I’m happy with my performance and want to thank my new trainer John Scully for helping me stay sharp,” said Palacios. “This was an excellent opponent for me to comeback against because Mendoza is no joke and I’m setting my sights at getting another world title shot in the near future.”
