Jhonny Gonzalez Eyes Santa Cruz, Mikey Garcia, Donaire
By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com
WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs) has big names on his mind. Last Saturday night in California, Gonzalez regained his title with a first round stoppage of Abner Mares. There is a rematch clause, and Gonzalez is open to a rematch, but his promoters, Reginaldo and Oswaldo Kuchle, have said their boxer has several big names on his mind - including the new WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz. Golden Boy Promotions, due to Gonzalez's victory, have three controlling options on the boxer.
"Jhonny wants to the best, and [those fighters] are - Nonito Donaire, Mikey Garcia and Leo Santa Cruz, but let us see what Golden Boy Promotions offers. We are open to a rematch [with Mares]. [Before Jhonny won], there were already plans to have Mares go against Leo Santa Cruz, and now making this fight between Santa Cruz and Mares would be a lot more of natural [option] for Abner," Oswaldo Kuchle said.

Leo Santa Cruz will get slumped like Mares the moment he steps up in competition . His chin will break eventuallyComment by 1pnchndn on 08-28-2013
These 'options' are bull****. These need to go away. Then again if you don't agree to the options then you don't get the fight. Bs.Comment by Tay Roc on 08-28-2013
Would like to see him fight any and all of those opponents. He has a chance against any with that power, especially with Nachito in his corner. PDL rematch sounds good too.Comment by Jc8804 on 08-28-2013
