Chelo Gonzalez Targets Michael Katsidis Showdown

By Rey Colon

Jose "Chelo" Gonzalez, who faces Derrick Campos this coming Saturday at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Puerto Rico, is looking to position himself for a regional title fight at 135 pounds and then wants to try to arrange a fight with Michael Katsidis, a former WBO lightweight king, who lost his interim-title in his latest fight against Juan Manuel Marquez.

"[After Campos] I'll look for a regional title and then I'd like to fight with Katsidis and God willing later this year I'll be a WBO champion," he said.

Gonzalez, with a record of 13-0 and nine knockouts, understands that a victory over Katsidis, with a record of 27-3 and 22 knockouts, would then make him known internationally and catapult him to stardom.

"He's a former champion and he would be a good opponent. If I win, I can go straight to the title. He has a name and I would fight with him after the regional title. I want to do four fights this year and last one being for the world title," he said.
