Jhonny Gonzalez: I'm Still Going After Yuriorkis Gamboa

By Miguel Rivera

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez has vowed to continue his pursuit of Yuriorkis Gamboa. Gonzalez returned to action on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. He knocked out challenger Tomas Villa in four rounds, and broke the challenger's jaw in the process. Gonzalez, trained by Nacho Beristain, wants a shot at Gamboa, although the Cuban's camp has publically revealed that Gonzalez's team rejected a six figure deal for a September 10 clash. Gamboa will now likely face Daniel Ponce De Leon on the date.

"It was a tough at first [with Villa]. He hits hard and he was very attentive all the time. But I began to gradually dominate him until the knockout. And when the opportunity for the knockout came, I didn't let it go. I knew I could win by knockout because I repared well for this match. Now, we are still going to [continue to] pursue the Cuban Gamboa," Gonzalez said.
