Jonathan Gonzalez, Sergei Dzinziruk Battle To a Draw

By Bill Emes

Turning Stone Casino, Verona, New York - junior middleweights Jonathan Gonzalez (15-0-1, 13KOs) and former WBO champion Sergei Dzinziruk (37-1, 24KOs) fought to a twelve round draw. The scores were 117-111 for Gonzalez, 115-113 for Dzinziruk and 114-114 for the draw.

Gonzalez, who experienced serious weight issues prior to the contest, looked a little chubby. Dzinziruk was cautious and boxed while Gonzalez was looking for big shots and didn't appear to have any fear of the veteran's power. After being outboxed in some of the earlier rounds, Gonzalez became very aggressive in round five and started pushing the tempo. The veteran's face was starting to swell. Gonzalez was landing the harder punches, but he was very inactive and didn't let his hands go during the moments when Dzinziruk would take breaks.
