Former U.S. Junior Olympic national champion and Olympic Trials participant Joet Gonzalez has turned pro and signed a managerial contract with Espinoza Boxing.

“Joet has a really crowd-pleasing style,” said Frank Espinoza Sr., who runs the Southern California-based managerial outfit with his son, Frank Jr.  “He throws a lot of punches and gives the fans what they want to see.  I’ve been watching him in the amateurs, and I’ve really liked what I’ve seen, so I had to sign him.”

Gonzalez, an 18-year-old from Glendora, Calif., was also a 123-pound finalist in the 2011 National Championships and competed in the World Series of Boxing with the Los Angeles Matadors.

“We want him to get him started at super bantamweight, at 122 pounds, then go from there,” Espinoza Sr. said.  “I have a little experience with that weight class with [former world champion] Israel Vazquez and now with Abner Mares.”

The father-and-son tandem of Frank Sr. and Jr. has steered their fighters to a 13-0 record this year, with Mares recently securing his second world title belt in as many weight classes and junior welterweight prospect Antonio Orozco picking up an early stoppage win on the Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto undercard last Saturday.
