After several months of being inactive due to a diagnosis of mycoplasma that canceled out his last fight, Jonathan "Bomba" González is already in training to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior flyweight world title.

And although there is nothing official yet, one of the possibilities is that Gonzalez will make his third defense against countryman Rene "El Chulo" Santiago on a card in Puerto Rico between the end of September and the beginning of October.

"The option of Rene Santiago is quite viable and the one that makes the most sense," said Gonzalez's promoter, Felix "Tutico" Zabala, from the All Star Boxing, to Gabriel Quiles.

“They started with an exchange of words on social networks and it seems that they both want the fight. If it happens, it would be done in Puerto Rico. But, it is true that we have the possibility of fighting in both Nicaragua and Japan and we will choose the best for Bomba because there was already a plan here, but it is likely that this fight will happen.

González, 32 years old, has a record of 27-3-1 and 14 knockouts. He's carried out innumerable sparring sessions with Santiago.

While Santiago has a record of 11-3 and eight knockouts since his debut in 2014. He is currently the WBO 108-pound Latino champion.

“I was surprised by René. It would not have occurred to me to mount this fight because honestly I have worked with both of them and we have gotten along well. It was not the intention. Now when I saw that they are crossing each other and asking for the fight, everything changes. Also, that two Puerto Ricans living on the Island [in a world title] fight has not happened for years, so it would be interesting to take this fight to Puerto Rico,” Zabala added.
