Jhonny Gonzalez-Clive Atwell in Play For March 29th

By Miguel Rivera

According to promoter Osvaldo Küchle, WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez is likely going to defend his title on March 29th at Zocalo in Mexico City, against number #11 ranked Clive Atwell (12-0-1, 7KOs) of Guyana. Gonzalez wants to stay active until Abner Mares is ready to face him in a rematch. Gonzalez was going to face Mares on February 14th in Los Angeles, but Mares withdrew with a rib injury. Atwell, 25-years-old, has never fought outside of Guyana or against an opponent near the level of Gonzalez.
