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.

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