Philadelphia, PA. (March 8, 2017) – Super Lightweight prospect David Gonzales is looking to rebound from his 1st professional setback when he takes on Juan Rodriguez in the 6-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.

Gonzales now 8-1-2 with two knockouts, has gone back to the drawing board, and is working hard on his craft.

“I just want to get back in the win column.  Then maybe two more wins and fight an undefeated fighter, so I can move up the rankings.  I am a confident fighter.  I just got caught with a punch behind the head against Teah, and that’s boxing.”
“I just want people to know that I am back, and ready for a big win this Saturday.  I just want to keep getting better and become a world champion.”

David Gonzales looking for statement win over Teah this Friday night in Chester, Pa

Plus undefeated Tyrone Crawley Jr. to appear on 9-bout card at Harrahs Philadelphia
For Immediate Release
Chester, PA (September 28, 2016)–Undefeated junior welterweight David “TwoGunz” Gonzales is looking for a big effort this Friday night when he takes on the tested Samuel Teah in an eight-round bout that will headline a 9-fight card at Harrahs Philadelphia.
The show is promoted by King;s Promotions.
Gonzales of Philadelphia has a record of 8-0-2 with two knockouts.  The 26 year-old ha won three in a row since stepping up his level of competition.
“Training ha been great.  I been on weight since five days before the fight.  I feel strong, and I am ready for a big win on Friday,” said Gonzalez.
This won’t be the first time that Gonzales and  Teah have shared a ring, so Gonzales has a little scouting report on his opponent.
“I sparred with him once and he is a pretty skillful guy.  He is from Philly, so I know he has heart but he is not on my level.  The sparring session was about 6 rounds.  I haven’t watched any tape on him, but I know the only way he can win is if he is in better shape and I know that’s not possible because I am great shape.  I am also naturally bigger, so I think that will be a factor.”
This is another “Philly vs. Philly” matchup, which is always special to the fans in attendance.
“We are both from Philly.  People look forward to seeing these matchups and especially this early in our careers, but I am the one that will have my hands raised.”
Teah, who has had a couple fights and wins on national television, so Gonzales knows a win will put him on the map in the junior welterweight division.
