Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez Eyes Move To 108-Pounds

by Rey Colon

Former Olympian Jonathan 'Bomba' Gonzalez (14-1-1, 11 KO's) will be active on November 14th, fighting in an eight round bout at 110 pounds as part of a card being staged by Universal Promotions at the municipal gym Pedrín Zorrilla.

"This fight decides whether to drop down to 108 pounds or stay at 112," said the boxer.

Gonzalez intends to campaign at 108 pounds and for that purpose he hired a nutritionist who has worked with the former junior lightweight champion of the WBO, Roman 'Rocky' Martinez.

"So far I'm doing well. About six times a day I eat and I am 122-pounds. I dropped a few things, like soft drinks, and I do not feel very dry. My view is at 108 pounds. I'm already ranked 14th by the WBC. But like I said, this fight will decide whether I fight at 108 or 112," he said.
