The two-division world champion Jhonny Gonzalez finished his last last workout at the Romanza Gym in Mexico City in advance of his fight next Saturday August 24th against the WBC featherweight world champion Abner Mares at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. “Mares is in his prime and is very strong, but he’s changed his style of boxing and has some weaknesses that I hope to exploit during the fight to become new featherweight champion of the World Boxing Council. Mares is the favorite but I feel very motivated,” stated Gonzalez.
Trainer “Nacho” Beristain added, “It’ll be a tough fight between two fighters who hope to give their best in the ring. Jhonny has everything to give a great fight and get the win. If all goes well it’ll be an exciting fight.”
