J. Gonzalez Sides With Top Rank, Breaking From PRBBP

by Rey Colon

Flyweight prospect Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez (9-0, 8 KO's) confirmed that he recently met in New York City with Top Rank president, Todd DuBoef. The boxer's legal counsel Gaby Peñagaricano was present and they discussed his contract and the future of his career. He denied reports which indicate his intention to break ties with Top Rank, stating that he's only breaking away from PR Best Boxing. In turn, he also denied reports that he plans to fight on a July 14th event being staged by Miguel Cotto Promotions.

"I am amazed with what has been published. I'm making some decisions about my career that will be key to my future. It is totally false that I will break away from Top Rank. I'm breaking relations with PR Best Boxing," said the former Olympian.

"I think the decision I made to separate the PR Best Boxing will benefit me long term. I have a fight in July in the U.S. We are waiting for an answer from Todd as to when but what is certain is that I will not fight anymore under PR Best Boxing."
