Sergio Mora Faces Jesus Gonzales on April 19th in AZ

Phoenix, AZ - April 19th will mark the return of fan favorite Jesus "El Martillo" Gonzales as makes his 1st attempt at the middleweight division against former World Champion Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora.  Gonzales, who lost his last bout against the IBF #1 contender Adonis Stevenson, will make a move to 160 lbs for the first time in front of his legion of AZ fight fans. 

"Jesus had a rough night against Stevenson in Canada, but he has been preparing for this return and is ready to make an impact at Middleweight.  The power he brings to the middleweight division makes him an instant title contender" explained Ralph Velez Jr. of FanBase promotions.

Before "El Martillo" faced Stevenson in Canada, he participated in an absolute war on ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" against Francisco Sierra.  Both men thrilled AZ fight fans as well as fight fans worldwide on ESPN2.  Gonzales showed tremendous heart, trading knockdowns with Sierra, en route to a hard fought & well deserved Unanimous Decision victory.

Former Jr. Middleweight champion Sergio "Latin Snake" Mora is looking to make a triumphant return to the ring after losing his last fight to Brian Vera in San Antonio, Texas.  Even though he lost it was not without controversy, since many ringside observers felt Mora should have been awarded a razor thin decision.  Mora holds victories over Ishe Smith, Peter Manfredo, Vernon Forrest as well as a draw with future Hall of Famer "Sugar" Shane Mosely.

Both men are expected to pull out all stops to earn another notch in the win column on April 19th, 2013 in the Phoenix, AZ area.  A victory for either warrior will most certainty earn them a title shot against one of the champion in the middleweight division.  "This is a classic boxer vs. puncher match up with world title implications.  We are excited to bring this fight to AZ fight fans" exclaimed Ralph Velez Jr.

Eddie Brooks, Paul "Ziggy" Romero, and newly signed Mario Esparza will also be in action.

The venue, TV, and ticket information will be announced shortly.  You can follow FanBase Promotions on Facebook for more information :
