Korobov Returns on Oct. 20, Open To Jonathan Gonzalez

By Rick Reeno

Undefeated middleweight contender Matt Korobov (17-0, 10KOs) will return on October 20th in Texas, according to manager Cameron Dunkin. Due to some visa related issues, Korobov has been inactive since last November. Dunkin wants to push the 29-year-old boxer to the top of his division. One fighter who Dunkin expressed interest in matching Korobov against is fellow unbeaten Jonathan Gonzalez (15-0-1, 13KOs), who last Saturday fought to a twelve round draw with former WBO 154-pound champion Sergei Dzinziruk.
