Photo: Atwell Hits Mexico, Ready For Jhonny Gonzalez

By Miguel Rivera

Undefeated Guyanese contender Clive "Punisher" Atwell arrived in Mexico, ready to for this Saturday's battle against World Boxing Council (WBC) featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez. The fight takes place in Acapulco, Guerrero. Atwell (12-0-1, 7 KOs) vs. Gonzalez (55-8, 47 KOs) will be carried by Televisa Deportes from the Acapulco Convention Center.

"Acapulco is a famous vacation spot throughout the world, but my goal is not to lie down on the beach. I have before me a great opportunity to achieve the dream of being a champion against a great opponent. Gonzalez is a big puncher but he does not impress me. I am ready to make history in Mexico. It is not an impossible task if you see it from the same perspective as my team. I have great amateur experience, a winning record and the perfect style to trouble Jhonny Gonzalez, and take home the beautiful WBC belt," Gonzalez said.
