NEW JERSEY - Gary Shaw Productions and Antonio Leonard Promotions is happy to announce that their undefeated super-middleweight contender, Brandon Gonzales (18-0-1, 10 KOs), will fight James DeGale (18-1, 12 KOs) on the undercard of Carl Froch (32-2, 23 KOs) vs. George Groves (19-1, 15 KOs) at Wembley Stadium in London, United Kingdom on May 31, 2014. The 12-round bout will be for the IBF mandatory position.

Gonzales is currently ranked IBF # 3 while DeGale is ranted IBF # 4. Both fighters are looking to capitalize on this momentous opportunity with victor most likely to challenge the winner of Froch vs. Groves.

Gonzales, who is managed by James Prince, feels he's the better fighter. With an undefeated record and the right people behind him, Gonzales feels his time is now.

"I've been working hard my whole life to get in this position," said Brandon Gonzales. "I never had anything come easy to me in this boxing game. I had to work my way up the rankings the hard way with little support. Now that I have Gary Shaw and Antonio Leonard promoting me, I feel I have all the necessary pieces to become a star. James Prince and I had a vision and now it's coming to fruition."

"DeGale is a very good fighter with a lot of heart. His only lost is a controversial majority decision defeat to George Groves. Most people thought he won that fight so in my eyes he's going to be coming at me like an undefeated fighter looking to redeem himself. I'm ready for the challenge. DeGale stands in my way of becoming a world champion and I must take him out. One thing I know is I'm coming to win and show the world that Brandon Gonzales is the real deal."

Gary Shaw, who recently signed Gonzales with Antonio Leonard, is thrilled to get his fighter an opportunity to make a major push in his career.

"I told Brandon when we signed him to be ready to go because I really want to get him a title shot," said Gary Shaw. "Now he's in position to really do something special in his career. A win against DeGale will get him the world title shot he's worked so hard to achieve. He must come out victorious to make his dream come true and I believe he has the talent to be something special in the division."

"Brandon is hungry to show everyone in the super-middleweight division that he's the man," said Antonio Leonard. "He's undefeated for a reason, because he's got immense skill. I believe in him and Gary and I got his back moving forward. This fight will be one the fans will not want to miss. It's going to be all action from the opening bell."

Sooo glad the networks picked this up in the states. That's gonna be a huge stage, huge event and atmosphere. I like the Froch Groves card better than Pac Bradly. Good fight and title challenger set up. Hope Brandon can do it convincingly. That's a big money shot.
