Mexico-native and California transplant Alfonso Gomez rose to recognition in the U.S. while competing on the hit reality TV show "The Contender" on NBC in 2004. He ranked third of the show's 16 fighters that were competing for a one million dollar cash prize. Gomez is an intense fighter who has taken on some of the toughest fighters in the sport, Shawn "Showtime" Porter, Canelo Alvarez, Miguel Cotto and Jesus "Renuente" Soto Karass. In 2014 Gomez won via unanimous decision over Ed Paredes at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino, Las Vegas in July and won another decisive victory over Japanese warrior Yoshihiro "El Maestrito" Kamegai in March of 2015.  Now, in the ring for the first time this year, Gomez will be looking to continue the winning streak when he takes on the equally exciting fighter Pablo Cesar Cano on July 15.
 
Pablo Cesar "El Demoledor" Cano of Tlalnepantla, Mexico State, Mexico is set on demolishing any opponent who stands in his way. No stranger in battling for belts, Cano is the former WBA Interim Super Lightweight World Champion and NABF Light Welterweight Champion and along his path to world championship gold has fought for the WBA Welterweight World Championship against Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi and the vacant WBC Super Lightweight World Championship against Erik "El Terrible" Morales. Staying busy in 2015, Cano defeated Jorge Silva and Silverio "Chamaco II" Ortiz, and most recently faced Alan Sanchez in May 2016 at the new Toshiba Plaza in Las Vega, opening up the Canelo-Khan fight weekend. Now, Cano will be looking to get back on the winning column as he sets up to face one of the most promising contenders in the welterweight division, former world title contender Alfonso Gomez on July 15.
