WBC featherweight champion Jhonny González (55-8, 47KOs) wants to stay very busy now that he’s champion. Jhonny will meet this Saturday with his promoter to define what’s next on his career agenda and schedule his first defense. A rematch with Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14KOs) is a strong option for early 2014, but there is nothing arranged yet.
“If I fight in December I might not have a big purse but I will have some activity, which is what I want” Gonzalez explained. “All boxers deserve a chance. Mares gave me a chance and I’m willing to give him back the opportunity."
