Jorge Maysonet Training Hard For Ramesis Gil Showdown

Explosive puncher, Jorge "Machito" Maysonet, Jr. (9-0, 8 KO's) is training very hard for his next fight on Friday, October 26, at the Roque Nido Stella Coliseum in Guayama, Puerto Rico.  

His opponent will be one of the most evaded fighters in Puerto Rico. Half Dominican, half Puerto Rican, Ramesis Gil (8-4-5, 5 KO's) has had a spectacular 2012 with victories over then undefeated Carney Bowman (16-1, 7 KO's) from Pennsylvania and Luis Joel González (9-1-1, 5 KO's). Both fights were decision victories.

Maysonet vs. Gil is a fight scheduled for 8 rounds at the lightweight division (135 pounds).  

"The training has been very intense because we know the type of fighter Ramesis is. On the 26th (October) you can expect a war, and Ramesis will be in for a big surprise because he will not be able to take my punches and what the fans will see in Guayama is a knockout" said the unbeaten Puerto Rican fighter who is trained by his father Jorge Maysonet, Sr. who represented Puerto Rico at the 1984 Olympic in Los Angeles. At the professional level, he was a world title contender with all his victories (22) coming by way of knockout.  

Maysonet, Sr. is confident in the abilities of his son stating, "We're gonna put a lot pressure on Gil.  If the fight ends soon is better because my son will take less shots. "Machito" is ready to go the distance but that may not happen because his power is tremendous".

"I want to thank my promoters Javier Bustillo, Leon Margules and Gary Shaw for the opportunity to be fighting once again and I will not let them down" declared Maysonet Jr., whose eight knockouts have all come in the first round.  

Maysonet, Jr. is a member of "Team Puerto Rico", a collaboration between Gary Shaw Productions, Universal Promotions and Warriors Boxing made with the goal of gathering the best of Puerto Rico's boxing talents.  

The fight card titled "Night of Champions" will have Miguel "el Gallo" Marrero (6-0, 3 KO's) facing off against Edgardo "Indio" Rivera (6-2-1, 5 KO's) as the co-feature bout scheduled for 6 rounds at the super featherweight division. (122 pounds)

Also in action will be Edgardo "Eggie" Laboy (4-0, 2 KO's - 122lbs), who is promoted by Universal Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions, Emmanuel "Pirata" De Jesús (1-0, 1 KO's - 154lbs), Edwin "Puto" Rodríguez (1-0, 1 KO's - 115lbs), Efraín "Macho" Cruz (2-0, 1 KO's), Víctor Picu Pérez (1-0, 1 KO's), among others.
