Frankie Gomez Focused To Showcase His Skills in Vegas

By Luis Sandoval

Highly touted Golden Boy prospect Frankie Gomez will be taking on his toughest test to date as he tangles with the tough Lanard Lane later tonight. Gomez’s career was sidelined for a year after personal problems kept him out of the ring for most of 2012. Since then, Gomez has found a new trainer in Freddie Roach and is making it a priority to stay as active as possible.

Frankie was on the most recent edition of BoxingScene’s official radio show The Boxing Lab and shared his thoughts on Lane and what he expects from him.

“I know he's pretty good, quick and he's an older fighter. He has [a lot] of experience.  I seen video on him and it looks like he's going to be in for a good fight. I'm just training my best and training harder to get this [victory]” said Gomez.

Gomez is now under the tutelage of Freddie Roach and feels it’s been a great change in his career. His last fight against Pavel Miranda lasted a mere round as Gomez scored a sensational knockout. It was more impressive given the fact that Miranda had badly hurt Jose Benavidez Jr in his last fight and was supposed to be a tough test for Gomez.
Gomez expects Lane to last longer than Miranda and also feels that this will be a fight where he can prove not only to his fans, but to himself that he’s ready to continue stepping up and taking his career to the next level.

“I want to take it to the next step and this is a good fight to prove myself to people and to myself that I am who I am. I expect a great fight. I know he's going to give me more rounds [than I had in my last fight] but that's what I want. I want to show people what I can do and prove my skills.  That I can box with you, I can brawl, stay inside or do whatever you want. I just want to prove to the people that I can do both box with you and stay in there and brawl or even counter punch. I can do almost everything. Hopefully it gets me a good amount of rounds and I’m sure it’s going to be a good fight so make sure you watch it” Gomez would tell The Boxing Lab.

Gomez has been fighting around the mid 140s since he’s come back but he informed that he will be staying in the Junior Welterweight division. A move to 147 will come in the future but for now, he plans to stay at 140 for as long as he’s able to. Frankie expects 2013 to be a big year for him and it all starts this Saturday night.
