Jonathan Gonzalez Feels Ready For Sergei Dzinziruk

Junior middleweight prospect Jonathan Gonzalez (15-0, 13KOs) feels ready for his upcoming fight against veteran Sergei Dzinziruk (37-1, 23KOs) on the 25th of August in Washington. The fight will be televised by HBO. The 22-year-old fighter from Puerto Rico returns from a Februayr decision win against Billy Lyell. Dzinziruk, a former WBO champion, has not fought since March 2011 when he was defeated for the first time by Argentina's Sergio 'La Maravilla' Martinez.
"Everybody has their opinion [on whether I'm ready]. [Dzinziruk] is very experienced and a veteran. But I'm also a veteran and remember that I've a lot of fights at the amateur level. With Lyell I did not train at 100%. It was the fight where I was the least prepared. I had some personal problems, but eventually I figured him out easily and was well ahead on the cards. Against Dzinziruk I will be at 100%. I'm stronger than him and he'll feel my hands, speed and power," Gonzalez told Carlos Narvaez.

If Sergei dont uses his legs, he gets hammered and walk down and TKO, if Sergei uses lots of movement and uses his lazer type jab, keeping Gonzalez honest, easy UD for Dzinziruk. This all depends on what Dzinziruk shows…Comment by PRBOXINGCOTTO on 06-06-2012
