Gonzalez to follow Barrera

Jhonny Gonzalez (45-7, 39 KOs) not only hopes to get a shot at the winner of October’s Juan Manuel Lopez-Rafael Marquez fight, but vows to follow in the footsteps of fellow countryman Marco Antonio Barrera when he takes on Jackson Asiku (26-3, 14 KOs) Sept. 15 at the Hilton in Las Vegas. Gonzalez and Asiku will fight for the IBO featherweight title – the same belt that was at stake when Barrera fought, and defeated, Prince Naseem Hamed in 2001. “All the Mexicans will be supporting me when I fight in Las Vegas during Mexican Independence Week,” says Gonzalez. The card is promoted by Roy Englebrecht Promotions and Promociones del Pueblo. The card’s co-main features Juan Carlos Salgado (22-1-1, 16 KOs), who will fight for the IBO 122-pound belt against Daniel Jimenez (19-3-1, 11 KOs), of Puerto Rico.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
