WBC Featherweight World Champion, Jhonny Gonzalez will defend his belt against Gary Russell Jr. this Saturday, March 28.
“The media thinks I'm done. They say Russell is too fast for me. I'm an underdog in this fight. While I don't let any of the talk bother me, it does give me more motivation to prove to the people that I am for real and that I am a good fighter fight in and fight out.”
“I enjoy being champion, putting in all the hard work and proving people wrong. I had a great training camp and prepared myself well in Mexico City for this fight. I'm known for knockouts but I never go into a fight looking for knockouts. I am ready to fight 12 hard rounds. If the knockout comes, it comes.”
