Gonzalez eyeing Boxcino and world titles

Philadelphia (March 19, 2014)–Lightweight contender Miguel “Silky Smooth” Gonzalez (23-3, 16 KO’s) is looking for big things in 2014.  First on his agenda is defeating Fernando Carcamo (16-5, 13 KO’s) on March 28 at the 4 Bears Casino & Lodge in New Town, North Dakota as part of the semifinal round in the Boxcino 2014 tournament.
Gonzalez defeated Miguel Angel Mendoza on February 21 via split decision in the quarterfinal round and now looks ahead to the power punching Carcamo.
“Everything is great.  Training is good and we have been in camp since a week after the Mendoza fight.  I am getting the proper preparation,” said Gonzalez.
Although Gonzalez won the fight, he wasn’t totally satisfied with the fight due to Mendoza.
“I think the guy who I was in there with wasn’t quality.  I can’t judge my performance other than I was too quick for him.”
Gonzalez is now turning his attention to the hard charging Carcamo, who scored the only stoppage of the quarterfinal round when he took out previously undefeated Samuel Neequaye in two rounds.
“Carcamo is a stand up fighter.  He is basic with a left hand.  We have had the right sparring for this fight and I am coming in with confidence.  I am here to win this tournament and he is just another guy.”
“I see myself as the champion of this tournament and this will lead to being a mandatory contender for a world title.”
With that confidence level, Gonzalez feels he is the man to beat as the semifinals commence.
“It has been a great tournament so far.  I can not wait to go to North Dakota and put on a great show and it will be just one more fight left to win Boxcino.  After I win this fight, I will go home and rest for a week with my daughter and her mother and start preparing for the final,” finished the Cleveland based contender.
