Eddie Gomez Hopes To Finalize Sadam Ali Fight on Canelo-Jacobs

Eddie ‘E-Boy’ Gomez, (22-3-0, 12 KOs), of Bronx, NY is looking to close a deal for a cross-town showdown against former world champion Sadam ‘World Kid’ Ali, (27-2-0, 14 KOs), of Brooklyn, NY, potentially planned for May 4 in Las Vegas, NV on the undercard of the World Middleweight Championship between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs at the T-Mobile Arena.

“We’re really pushing for that fight. It’s a great fight for both guys with a huge upside for the winner,” said Tim Van NewHouse of Split-T Management, manager of Gomez. “Eddie and Sadam have been circling each other for a couple of years, now they both need a big fight and their both competing at welterweight. Eddie is coming off two terrific wins last year and is primed and ready for this challenge.”

“The ball is in Ali’s court, we’re ready to roll on May 4.”

The 26-year-old Gomez knocked out the highly regarded Keandre Gibson in the second round on March 22, 2018. Following up on that victory the Honduran born Gomez won a unanimous decision over Shoko Sakai on October 18, 2018.

Ali captured the WBO Super Welterweight World Title by defeating Puerto Rican legend Miguel Cotto on December 2, 2017 at Madison Square Garden. Battling Jaime Munguia in his next bout on May 12, 2018, Ali would relinquish the title in his first defense.

He said, “Firstly thank you to my manager Tony Tolj at Dragon Fire Boxing for making this opportunity a reality for me.

“As a boxer, you always want to be recognised by the governing bodies, so fighting at a convention is the ultimate. I can’t wait to put on a show for the IBF representatives and hopefully impress them on my route to world titles.”

Gago is aiming to contest a version of the IBF title at the Macau convention, MC’d by the world the world famous Craig Stephen. Gago opened up about his preparations prior to his big opportunity.

Gago said, “Training is going perfectly. I am always in the gym, sparring up and coming talent like Jackson England who is going to be a champion going forward, and experienced former world champions like Lucas Browne. I couldn’t ask for more training wise and that is showing in my performances.”

Gago elaborated in his own unique way, “I want to be recognised as the best fighter in my weight class in Australia, which means everything to me.

“Then I want to take on the world starting at the IBF convention in Macau. I will fight anyone and I know that anyone that is put in front of me I will beat and I will beat them in entertaining fashion.

“I am a no nonsence fighter. I come to fight, and that is what not just boxing fans but general sports fans want to see the world around. My manager Tony Tolj will deliver me the fights that sports fans will be entertained with and I will continue to work towards becoming a world champion starting at the IBF convention in Macau.”

This is a nice fight for Ali. He should win comfortably and maybe even score a stoppage.
