Jesus Gonzalez To Face Elvin Ayala on July 21, Mohegan

According to Fan Base Promotions, former IBF/NABF Super Middleweight Champion  Jesus "EL Martillo" Gonzales  (27-2-0) will not fight in Arizona on August 3 as previously announced. Instead, the 27 yer old Arizona Native  will take on Elvin Ayala  (25-5-1) July 21  at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. Ayala resides in nearby New Haven, Connecticut. The middleweight headliner  contest is scheduled for 10 rounds;but, it isn't televised.
 
The change of time, date, venue and opponent  came as a result of Gonzales'  difficulty in finding  a  trainer. Fan Base asked that the name of the new trainer be withheld until the former champ reports for training in Las Vegas, Nevada. If Gonzales fails to report, presumably the bout is off and Fan Base will start a new search to find a suitable  foe.   It can be told that the "presumptive"  trainer is a veteran with a sound resume and a recognizable name in the world boxing community. Gonzales has been clamoring for a name trainer for years and now he apparently has one. The onetime Top Rank Protege  dumped his last trainer almost a year ago
 
This is a crossroads fight for Gonzales whose last fight resulted in a 1st round knockout loss  at the hands of Haitian "Bad Boy" Adonis "Superman" Stevenson. Gonzales hopes his return as a middleweight  will increase his ring  speed and add power to his punch; something that was missing in most of his super middleweight fights. 
 
Gonzales should be able to beat the 31 year old Ayala  if his head is screwed on straight and his body is fit.....a defeat could spell the end of a career for a very popular and once promising boxer.
