Undefeated Puerto Rican Jr. Middleweight Jonathan Gonzalez made his mandated second day weigh-in and his HBO televised co-feature with former WBO Jr. Middleweight champion Sergei Dzinziruk will go on as scheduled tonight at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino.
The bout was scheduled to take place at 154 pounds and the WBC Continental Americas championship would be on the line but Gonzalez weighed in at 162 pounds and because of missing weight, the fight would only go on if Gonzalez weighed in at 166 pounds the morning of the fight.
Gonzalez checked in at 165.2 pounds and the fight will go on as scheduled and will be televised Live on HBO beginning at 9:45 Eastern / Pacific.
The main event will feature undefeated WBA Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin taking on Grzegorz Proksa.
It’s absolutely ridiculous to weigh in at the level that Gonzalez had, for what is by far the biggest fight of his career. Frankly, after that kind of showing, he doesn’t deserve the fight whatsoever. Meanwhile, Dzinziruk didn’t make weight either – he came in at 156.5 lbs.
