Dzinziruk: I'm Unbeaten at 154, I'll End Gonzalez's Run

By Jhonny Gonzalez

On September 1 at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York, Puerto Rican puncher Jonathan Gonzalez (15-0, 13 KOs) will face the former junior middleweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Ukrainian Sergei "Razor" Dzinziruk (37-1, 24 KOs) in a co-featured televised bout, as part of HBO's Boxing After Dark series, starting at 9:45 pm (Eastern time .)

The hard-hitting Puerto Rican brings an aggressive fighting style. The former Olympian had a record of 132 wins and 18 losses in amateur boxing, and is currently ranked No. 6 by the WBO, No. 8 in the World Boxing Association (WBA) and No. 12 in the WBC (WBC).

"Fighting on HBO is a great opportunity for me and my team. Gary Shaw had promised me a fight on the big stage to perform worldwide. I always give exciting fights to the public and it won't be any different when I face Dzinziruk. My goal is to become world champion," said Gonzalez.

Dzinziruk has other plans. The former champion is undefeated at 154-pounds. His only loss came to pound-for-pound boxer Sergio Martinez at 160-pounds. He defended his WBO world title seven times. He promises to end the unbeaten run of Gonzalez and plans to use that win to get another world title shot.

"It is a fact that I'm undefeated at 154 pounds," said Dzinziruk, and continued: "Gonzalez is a big puncher, but he's never faced a top fighter like me. I'll finish [his] unbeaten [run] and then I'll be in search of a world title and soon I will be world champion."

[QUOTE=jtcs1981]I hope Gonzalez moving his camp to Denver and hiring Pedro Diaz have a real effect on Mantequilla. He comes to fight with a belly and all those handle, he dont look like a professional. He did disappear from social networking and that is a good sign.[/QUOTE] When did he hire ...

For the record, I expect Dzinziruk to win here but it means nothing. Gonzalez is borderline top 20 in the division. He's OK, nothing more. Cotto beats Dzinziruk's ass.

Sergiy, you're unbeaten at 154 because...you have fought no one at 154 who is any good. Beat a top 10 guy at 154 then start running your mouth. Until then you're just another second-rate fighter.

I give Dzinziruk the edge based on his experience,too soon for a fighter like gonzalez to fight a guy like at this level...Dzinziruk by UD 116-112..this will set up the fight with Cotto in December.

It's sink our swim time for Gonzalez.I gotta give him props for taking this fight and not milking it 40+ fights later like some other fighters do around here.I hope Pedro Diaz prepared him well because this is a huge step.He has potential,but ill have to see how he looks disciplined.
