Bomba Gonzalez Shocked as Top Rank Releases Him

By Rey Colon

Puerto Rican flyweight prospect Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez (13-1, 11 KO's), whose only blemish on his professional record was in his last fight, on August 17, when he was knocked out in four rounds by two-time world champion Giovanni Segura, received a letter from Top Rank which advised him that he was being released from his promotional agreement.

"I'm young, I'm only 22 years old and I didn't think that would happen over losing a fight. Let's see what happens in this rest period. They sent me a letter telling me that I was released a few days ago over the loss," said Gonzalez who was ranked seventh at 112 pounds under the WBO.

Gonzalez is moving forward with his career, including the possible hire of new trainer Robert Garcia of California. And now the boxer is free to pursue a deal with Miguel Cotto Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions or someone else.
