Gonzalez returning in August!

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Looks like former WBO bantamweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (40-7, 34 KOs) will reappear on August 21 in a ten-rounder in the city of Chihuahua, Mexico. The bout will be contested at featherweight, although it’s yet to be decided if Jhonny will stay 126 or drop to 122 again. Gonzalez was KO’d by WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka in a May world title attempt. The card is being promoted by Promociones del Pueblo, headed by Reginaldo and Osvaldo Kuchle.
