The 26 year old Gonzalez, now fighting out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin is a perfect 5-0 with five knockouts in his eleven month old professional stint. Pujoe brings a record of 5-4-1 (1KO) to the ring and this is his second bout at the Grand Victoria Casino in Rising Sun, IN as he beat Anthony Cobb this past December on the first evening of World Championship Boxing presented by 8 Count Productions and One in a Million, Inc.
Said Pesoli about the fast rising Gonzalez, “Mike’s come along very nicely as a pro. He’s not only winning in decisive fashion but our matchmaker Jerry Alfano has done an outstanding job of putting him in against solid guys with an array of skills which really teaches him about different styles and helps prepare him for future bouts. Pujoe is a very slick veteran who will pose a different set of problems for Mike to solve.”
“Mike’s got great power as proven by his KO’s but we want to make sure he doesn’t fall in love with his power and he’s really adapted well to our game plan. He’s been great to work with, always on weight, on time and well prepared. I’m looking forward to big things from him.”
