Gonzales dropped a close decision to Oscar Diaz in his last fight in February 2005.
According to Gonzales’ co-manager, Albert Falcon, “Speedy” is scheduled to make his return January 24th at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates, IL. The card is promoted by Bobby Hitz.
“Speedy brings excitement like no other fighter,” said co-manager and assistant trainer, Patrick Doljanin. “Once word got out that he was coming back, my phone has not stopped ringing. We’ll go at our own pace and take fights that make sense. We do not have a promoter, so as a free agent we have a lot of freedom.”
