Jhonny Gonzalez in Top Form For The Elio Rojas Clash

By Miguel Rivera

The featherweight world champion of World Boxing Council (WBC), Mexico's Jhonny Gonzalez (51-7, 45KOs), is in good condition to meet a very difficult obligation on the 28th of April, when he faces the mandatory challenger Elio Rojas (23-1, 14KOs) at a location to be determined. In the presence of a WBC supervisor, Gonzalez was on point at the WBC's 30-day weigh-in at the Romanza Gym in Mexico. Gonzalez stepped on the scale and weighed 135.8.

Gonzalez is training at the Romanza Gym with the legendary Nacho Beristain.

"Rojas is a dangerous opponent, but that's why we are going through a very strong preparation in the gym and in the mountains. We want to secure the great fights that represent good purses, but first there is a very difficult obstacle and we are ready to face this commitment. We will leave with the victory that's for sure," Gonzalez said.

tuff bout w/Jhonnys chin but he can win...still a month from the bout & still no named location...typical MX promotion..

Pretty good matchup If Jhonny wins with style then Salido could be on the horizon
