Jhonny Gonzalez, coming off his stunning upset over Abner Mares, returns to the ring on Saturday night, defending his WBC Featherweight Championship against the virtually unknown Clive Atwell in Mexico.
Gonzalez was left for dead, considered by most to be long past his best, before blasting Mares inside of a round last August. A rematch fell through due to a Mares injury, and instead he’ll take part in what amounts to a homecoming stay-busy fight.
Atwell is undefeated, but he’s never fought outside of his native Guyana. He’s currently ranked the No. 12 contender by the WBC, and an upset would be an absolute stunner.
Read on for our complete preview and prediction for Gonzalez vs. Atwell for the WBC Featherweight Championship.
