Joet Gonzalez: I trained really hard, and I’m coming with everything

“Sometimes it’s just not your night,” said Gonzalez (24-1, 14 KOs) on his first title shot against Shakur Stevenson. “I work hard and train hard for every fight. I don’t take nobody lightly. It just simply wasn’t my night. I rebounded with a win over Marriaga, and I think I showed the public I’m here to fight the best out there.”

“It’s not an easy fight,” Gonzalez said about an upcoming challenge against Navarreta. “It’s a tough fight. Navarrete has a style that’s very unique, very hard to figure out, and that’s why he’s a champion. I trained really hard, and I’m coming with everything. I’m planning on leaving Friday night with that belt.”

“It means everything. It’s my childhood dream. I always wanted to be a world champion. That’s why I started boxing in the beginning. That’s the plan, to bring that belt back home.”
