“Segura caused a big hurt in Puerto Rico when he beat two times our champion Ivan Calderon and I want to heal those hurts, no matter if is a KO or a decision win, I am going to win and after this bout become a world champion”, said Gonzalez.
Bomba Gonzalez (13-0, 11 KOs), who is ranked #6 by the WBO in the flyweights weighed 125lbs today of a 128lbs.8 maximum stated by the Puerto Rico Boxing Comision in their 30 day pre weigh in.
“I feel good because I’m five pounds lighter than the pre weigh in January for my fight against Omar Salado. That is the result of the hard work we’ve made with my new conditioning trainer Pensa Garcia (Cruz Manuel Garcia is the former Felix “Tito” Trinidad trainer). I thought that I was to weigh 126 or 127 pounds but I made 125”, added Gonzalez
