Miguel Gonzalez-Josenilson Dos Santos on ESPN, 7/26

PHILADELPHIA—A action packed co-feature has been added to a great night of boxing scheduled for July 26th at the Thunder Valley Casino & Resort in Sacramento, California as part of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.

In the exciting co-feature, it will be a ten round Lightweight bout for the WBO Latino Super Featherweight title as Miguel Gonzalez battles Josenilson Dos Santos.

The fights are promoted by Banner Promotions & Thompson Boxing.

Gonzalez of Cleveland, Ohio has a record 21-3 with fifteen knockouts.  The twenty-seven year old Gonzalez is a rising prospect as he continues to step up the competition and has quality wins over the likes of Tyrone Harris (24-7) and Humberto Toledo (39-6). 

He is coming off his best victory to date when he scored a knockdown en route to a ten round unanimous decision over former WBA Lightweight champion Miguel Acosta on May 2nd in Corona, California that was televised on a special edition of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.

Dos Santos of San Paulo, Brazil has a glossy record of 26-1 with sixteen knockouts.  He won the WBO Interim Latino Super Featherweight championship with a twelve round unanimous decision over Alejandro Ciacia on August 22nd, 2008.  Six months later he won the full title with a twelve round unanimous decision over undefeated David Pared. 

He made one defense with a fourth round knockout over Leandro Almagro.  Dos Santos has won twelve in a row including recapturing the WBO Super Featherweight title in his last bout with a twelve round unanimous decision over Carlos Ricardo Rodriguez on May 4th in San Paulo.

“This will be a great fight.  Gonzalez is coming off an impressive win over a former world champion in Acosta.  Dos Santos has a great record and I know he is motivated by seeing how impressive his stable mate Patrick Tiexiera was a couple weeks ago on ESPN.” said Banner Promotions CEO Arthur Pelullo.

“Add that to a great main event and we are very excited for the show on July 26th.”
A full undercard will be announced shortly.

Special guests scheduled to be in attendance will be former world champions Tony “The Tiger” Lopez, Loreto Garza, James Toney and Hall of Fame referee Joe Cortez.

Tickets for this outstanding evening of boxing are $149.50, $124.50, $99.50. $74.50, $59.50, $45.50 & $39.50 and can be purchased at The Thunder Valley Resort & Casino and Ticketmaster.com

Doors open at 5pm with the ESPN Broadcast beginning at 6pm.

Bouts subject to change.
