Gonzalez vs. Segura Finalized For August 17 Showdown

By Rey Colon

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, undefeated flyweight prospect Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez (13-0, 11 KO's) will reappear on August 17th at the International Ballroom of the El San Juan Resort and Casino of Isla Verde in Carolina, Puerto Rico and the opponent is the former 108-pound champion of the WBO, Mexico's Giovanni Segura (29-3-1, 25 KO's).

According to reports, another prospect from the same division, McWilliams Arroyo, ranking seventh in the WBO, could be active on the same evening against an opponent to be announced later on.

Gonzalez, 22, ranked sixth in the WBO, in April won a unanimous decision over Francisco Perez in brawl held in the Federal District in Mexico, and is on track to a title fight against Juan Francisco Estrada.

Segura, 31 and knocked out Ivan Calderon to win the 108-pound belt in 2010, succumbing in May to a unanimous decision loss when he faced Edgar Sosa for the WBC silver flyweight title.

The Mexican veteran challenged then WBO champion Brian Viloria in 2011 and was stopped in the eight round.
