Promoter Oswaldo Kuchle, who guides the career of WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez, revealed that talks have already begun for a unification with WBA champion Nicholas Walters.
Kuchle and Gonzalez were ringside last Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, when Walters knocked out Nonito Donaire in six rounds to capture the full WBA crown. Kuchle's other fighter, Marco Antonio Rubio, was knocked out in the main event by Gennady Golovkin.
"We are already in talks with representatives of Walters to make the fight against Jhonny. I can already say that negotiations have started and we hope to reach a good agreement for both parties," said the renowned Mexican promoter.
Kuchle says the fight would take place in the United States.
Jhonny has a record of 57-8, 48 before the deadline. And Walters has an unbeaten record of 25-0 with 21 knockouts.
