Mexican WBC world featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez has amped up his training for his September 15 showdown with compatriot and former WBO world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. “We are starting this month with strong pace workouts. I feel great and I’m adapting to the southpaw style. Every day we try to learn and keep learning. This month is very important in my preparation and our agenda is being fulfilled according to plan. It’s the strongest preparation of my career and I always train hard and with great concentration and dedication. What is certain is that it will be a great fight and a great night for boxing,” said Gonzalez, who trains daily at the Romanza Gym with his trainer Nacho Beristain in Mexico City.
