Nacho: Once Rojas Tastes Gonzalez's Power, He Will Run
By Miguel Rivera
Veteran trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain, who led Mexico's Jhonny Gonzalez (51-7, 45KOs) to new heights, says his pupil's success is based on effort, dedication, discipline and the desire to continue learning boxing. On the 28th of April at the Grand Oasis Resort in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico - Gonzalez will defend the title against mandatory challenger Elio Rojas (23-1, 14KOs).
Gonzalez is training very hard at the Romanza Gym in Mexico. Nacho expects Rojas to be aggressive, but then feels the Dominican boxer will run in the face of Gonzalez's power.
"We have a plan for the Dominican's style, but I can't tell you what it is. I just know that once Elio feels Jhonny's bombs, he will grow wings and become a hare - and he will try to run to Miami, but we will cover the exits and that's what Johnny will do to retain the championship," Gonzalez said.
This is a legit fight at Featherweight. This is one of those underrated that a lot of people don't know about.Comment by nycsmooth on 04-20-2012

Always liked Jhonny Gonzalez, I could easily see him scoring a knockout but I could also see Rojas knocking him out. Should be very interesting.Comment by Carlos Alberto on 04-20-2012
I have to see an hear Nacho say this to believe it. This doesn't sound like Nacho at all... On a side note, I'm very interested in this fight. This is the first real featherweight that Jhonny has faced since…Comment by tupapa on 04-19-2012
