Jhonny Gonzalez Expects High Drama With Oquendo

By Miguel Rivera

Former three time world champion Jhonny Gonzalez will be entering the ring on Saturday night in another Mexico vs. Puerto Rico battle when he takes on Jonathan "Polvo" Oquendo at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The fight will open up the Showtime Pay-Per-View card, which is headlined by Floyd Mayweather Jr. defending his WBC/WBA welterweight titles against former two-time beltholder Andre Berto.

Gonzalez is now hunting for a title in the super featherweight division. He will enter the ring with a record of 58 wins, 49 of them before the limit in exchange for 9 defeats. The Mexican veteran hopes to close the year out with a fight against WBC world champion Takashi Miura of Japan.

Gonzalez is anticipating a good amount of resistance from Oquendo. He says the fans will be satisfied when the pay-per-view opens up with a lot of fireworks from the two of them. 

"We know that the fights between Mexico and Puerto Rico have a great history. In both countries we have had historical fighters in the boxing world who have faced each other and the fights are always exciting," Gonzalez said.

"For our part we will go in there to secure the win with everything. Oquendo is a good fighter, he has already shown what he is capable of and has a very offensive style. he doesn't pull any punches at all times, so our styles will come together seamlessly to give the people a great show. It will be a war from which we will [walk away with the man], because I want to be world champion at super featherweight."
