Super welterweight prospect Jonathan "Mantequilla" Gonzalez (15-0-1) was heavily criticized for coming in a whopping 9 pounds overweight for his September fight against Serhiy Dzinziruk. Gonzalez looked sluggish in the fight which ended in a split draw. The Puerto Rican fighter is in much better shape for his upcoming battle against Derek Ennis (23-3-1). The fight takes place tomorrow and will be televised by ESPN to kick off the the 2013 season of their Friday Night Fight series.
Rances Barthelemy (17-0) faces Arash Usmanee (20-0) in the evening's main event which takes place at the Magic City Casino in Miami, FL.
