Jhonny Gonzalez vs. Tomas Rojas on October 6, Mexico City

One of the biggest knockout artists in boxing, Jhonny Gonzalez, will return to the ring on October 6 at the mythical Arena Coliseo in Mexico City.

And he will face the always dangerous Tomas 'Worm' Rojas in a showdown between former world champions, which also tops the traditional 'Box Saturdays' on Televisa.

Gonzalez, who was the world champions in several weight classes, will risk his position of privilege in the WBC rankings, where he is located in the fourth position.

The fearsome capital puncher appears in the 'Funnel of La Lagunilla' where he got his first triumph as a professional, and measures himself against the left-hander from Veracruz who was two-division world champion at super flyweight.

Jhonny boasts a professional record of 66 wins and 54 of them by way of the knockout, in exchange for 10 defeats, he faces the 'Worm' who records 49 wins, 33 before the limit, 16 knockouts and a draw.

The clash between González and Rojas will be presented by Promociones del Pueblo with the support of Cavall Sport and Playboy Mexico; and the fight will be transmitted to millions of homes live on Televisa Deportes.

IN OTHER NEWS: Tampa native and unbeaten welterweight Mark Reyes Jr. recently spent time at the local Children’s Cancer Center where he hosted a special boxing clinic.

On September 15, a total of 18 children between ages 5 and 13 participated in the fun-filled clinic. During the hour long session, Reyes Jr. brought smiles to many young faces. The kids had a lot of energy and were excited to learn about boxing from one of Tampa’s young stars.

All participants were battling cancer or had a sibling fighting the disease. Reyes Jr. lost multiple family members to cancer and is strongly committed to helping knockout the disease. The 22-year-old is especially sensitive when it comes to children’s cancer.

“As a father of two, I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like for kids and their families to go through this,” said Reyes, who has a record of 7-0 with 5 knockouts and fights October 6 for the ABF Continental Americas welterweight title at the St. Petersburg Coliseum. “To fight such a vicious disease so early in their life is a very difficult task. It’s incredible that after everything the children and their siblings went through they can still smile. These kids are real heroes.”
