Juan Carlos Burgos Eyes Gamboa and Gonzalez Bouts


Los Angeles, CA - Champion Juan Carlos Burgos was on hand at El Paseo Inn Restaurant at the historic Placita Olvera earlier today to receive his WBO Latino Super featherweight belt and his WBC International silver super featherweight/ WBC Latino super featherweight belt.

Burgos, who is co-promoted by Thompson Boxing Promotions and Banner Promotions, earned the belts by battling for 10-tough rounds against hard punching Puertorican Luis Cruz on the opening televised bout of the November 12 Pacquiao-Marquez trilogy undercard. 

Burgos had this to say about the battle, "Some of Cruz's people thought that I was going to be an opponent that would only last three rounds.  Even if you watch the video, you can hear his trainers telling him that I was not at Cruz's level.  But I proved everybody wrong."  

When asked about his future plans, Burgos stated:  "My main focus now is to become world champion.  I owe it to my family, my team and my promoters who have always believed in me.  I would love to take on Yoriokis Gamboa.  I will fight him at any weight... featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight, catch weight.   You name the weight and I will fight him.  I would also love to be matched up against current WBC featherweight champion Jonnhy Gonzalez.  We were supposed to fight each other  in September of 2010 but he went another direction.  I don't know if he is afraid of me but I really feel he is ducking me."   

Other fighters mentioned on Burgos' wish list were, IBF Featherweight champion Billy Dib, highly ranked featherweight Mickey Garcia, Super featherweights Juan Manuel Lopez and WBC Champion Takahiro Aoh and lastly IBF Super featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado.     

Burgos (28-1, 19 KOs), is scheduled to make his return the ring in the first trimester of 2012.

I think he beats Gonzalez and gives Gamboa a good fight but loses.
