Gomez ready for Granados

By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten Frankie Gomez (10-0, 8 KO’s) has been used to fighting near his hometown of East Los Angeles, where he has heard cheers or words of encouragement from the crowd. Tonight, the 19 year old will find out what it will be like to fight in someone’s hometown as he takes on local fighter Adrian Granados (8-1-1, 5 KO’s) in the eight round main event bout at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL. The bout will headline a Solo Boxeo Tecate card. Gomez has been training in Big Bear, CA under Abel Sanchez for his last few fights and values the training and sparring he has received at the Summit Gym. “I don’t really like the mountains, but for boxing, it’s good to train up here. I’ve been sparring eight to 10 rounds a day and I’ve been working really hard.” Promoted by Golden Boy Promotions since his professional debut, the soft-spoken Gomez is not overlooking Granados for this fight. “There’s no real videos on him. I’m just going to go in there and do what I do best and take it to him. I’m focused on him 100%.”

Mikey Garcia update

By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten featherweight contender Miguel Angel Garcia will fight on October 22nd underneath a fight card headlined by bantamweight world title holder Nonito Donaire, manager Cameron Dunkin told Fightnews.com on Thursday afternoon. Garcia (26-0, 22 KO’s) will fight in a non-televised bout against an opponent to be determined, although Dunkin is holding out hope that HBO would show clips of the fight, as the premium channel is schedules to only air the Donaire fight. Garcia, who is co-trained by his older brother Robert and father Eduardo, is coming off a fourth round knockout victory over late replacement Rafael Guzman at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on June 4th. Although Carson, CA has been rumored as the place where Donaire will headline the October 22nd card, Dunkin claims that Top Rank is now looking at San Jose, CA or Las Vegas. Top Rank promotes both Donaire and Garcia.

Ouali-Jones added to ‘Star Power’

By Francisco Salazar

An attractive welterweight bout has been added to the “Star Power” card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 17th. Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told Fightnews.com on Tuesday afternoon that contender Said Ouali (28-3 1 ND, 20 KO’s) will take on crafty veteran Carson Jones in a 10 round bout. Jones (31-8-2, 21 KO’s), who has won his last five bouts in a row by knockout, is currently in Big Bear, CA, where he is being used as a sparring partner for Saul Alvarez. He was victorious in his last bout in July, stopping former fringe contender Germaine Sanders in the sixth round.

Ouali, who fights under the Mayweather Promotions banner, stopped Dumont Welliver in his last bout in May. It was his first bout since the controversial second round no contest in December against Randall Bailey. In that bout, Ouali was injured after he fell over the top rope and onto a table after losing his balance when Bailey inadvertently lifted him onto the top rope following a clench. The Ouali-Jones bout will top the non-televised portion of the card.
