"Bomba" Gonzalez Targets World Champs, Eyes Viloria

By Rey Colon

Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez (11-0, 10KOs) is hunting for a world title at 112 pounds. The young prospect is so confident that he has the ability to capture a world crown, he is willing to challenge any of the current champions in that division.

"I think I deserve it. I've worked hard in my life. Since I was a very little boy I worked hard for what I have but I think 2013 will be my year to become a world champion and meet my goal. It will be at 112 pounds, my natural weight. I do not care who the champions are or what country they are from. I'll go against any champion. Give me a chance. I want to do five defenses and go up to 115," he said.

And although it is too early to address it, Gonzalez likes the idea of ​​fighting at some point with Brian Viloria.

"I have no problems with that. He was supposed to leave the belt vacant [and move up] but he's still here [at 112], and I'm ready to fight. What I need is a little bit more experience and fights. But we are ready."

All these young Pr prospects are thinking they can have 15 pro fights and win a belt. From what ive seen theyve all failed recently when stepping up. How about taking your time and developing yourself having 20-25 fights before…
