The 28-year-old Gonzalez, of Managua, Nicaragua had a sensational debut on HBO at the Forum in Los Angeles on May 16 stopping former world champion Edgar Sosa in the second round in front of a huge crowd of over 12,000 Southern California boxing fans. The fight was the HBO televised co-feature to Gennady Golovkin’s sixth round stoppage of Willie Monroe.

The knockout of Sosa, Gonzalez’s ninth straight stoppage, was lauded by the international boxing media who also praised K2 Promotions and HBO for providing Gonzalez the opportunity to showcase his skills on the sport’s biggest stage.

Gonzalez is currently ranked #1 in the ESPN and Ring Magazine’s Pound-For-Pound ratings.

A member of the 2000 U.S. Olympic Team, the 34-year-old heavy-handed Viloria has thrilled boxing fans worldwide with his spectacular performances throughout his career.

Since parting with his WBA/WBO flyweight titles in a very close, split decision loss to Juan Estrada in April 2013, Viloria has stormed back to the win column with four sensational victories including three by knockout.

Most recently Viloria stopped former world title challenger Omar Soto in the first round on July 25 in Hollywood, California.
