Jhonny Gonzalez Eyes March 22 or March 29 For Return

By Salvador Rodriguez

The featherweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs), could defend his title on the 22nd or 29th of March in Mexico City, according to his promoter, Osvaldo Küchle. The Mexican promoter is still waiting to receive the green light from Golden Boy Promotions, who hold three options on Gonzalez.

Last year, Gonzalez scored a major upset when he knocked out Abner Mares in the first round. Mares exercised his option for a rematch and a date of February 15th was set. Mares then withdrew with a rib injury. If Mares is able to return by May, Gonzalez is willing to wait. But if his rehabilitation is going to push the fight back to June, then Kuchle wants his boxer to stay active in March fight.

"The proposal so far is that Jhonny will have a fight in March, possibly against Marvin Sonsona or another opponent to be determined, but first we need to know when Abner Mares will be ready, because if they say he can be ready for May, then we'll wait, but if it goes until June, then we'll look to bring Jhonny back before that," Kuchle said.
