Gomez knows what its like to fight bigger and stronger men from his experience on season one of The Contender, but he has yet to share the ring with a man as talented as Cotto. Gomez should not forget that Cotto also boxed well in his last outing against Shane Mosley and is more versatile of a fighter than many credit him for.
Regardless of what Cotto has to offer, Alfonso Gomez just wants to get it on.
“I’ve been more than excited about this fight. Rarely, does someone get a chance like this, and now that it’s knocking at my door I’m glad to receive it,” admitted Gomez. “I’ve only had a chance to meet Miguel once [in New York] a few weeks back and ever since that day I’ve been eager to get it over with.”
The boxing world eagerly awaits this contest, which will be broadcast on HBO. Gomez encourages his fans to watch “The Build-Up” at AlfonsoSGomez.com
to see for themselves how he is preparing for the most important fight of his career.
“I’m training harder than ever to come out on top once again,” said Gomez jubilantly. “On April 12th, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy!”
