By Miguel Rivera

Promoter Oswaldo Kuchle of Promociones del Pueblo has revealed that undefeated Clive Atwell (12-0-1, 7KOs) of Guyana would be the challenger for World Boxing Council (WBC) featherweight champion Jhonny González (55-8, 47KOs) on May 24th in Acapulco, Mexico. Atwell has knocked out seven of his last eight opponents, who were far below the level of Gonzalez. This will be his first fight outside of Guyana.

It will be Gonzalez's first defense since winning the belt with an upset first round knockout of Abner Mares from last August in Carson, California. They were scheduled to have a rematch in February and then Mares withdrew with a rib injury. There is a rematch clause, but it appears Mares is heading in another direction.

[QUOTE=Loque-san]I guess you can't reject a title shot. Is he any good? Does he seem to have power? Jhonny Gonzalez is a vulnerable champion. Before the Mares fight, he had looked bad vs Ponce de Leon, and flat out awful vs Osejo (he got dropped and beat up in that fight and was given a gift d...

Well, Gonzalez can't wait for Mares forever so he has to take a stay busy fight right now. I just hope he doesn't lose to this Atwell guy because the value of a rematch with Mares goes way down IMO.
