Ramos vs Rigondeaux Undercard: Brandon Gonzales Out, Triple-Header Still Intact

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.


The January 20 ShoBox triple-header, headlined by a 122-pound title fight between Rico Ramos and Guillermo Rigondeaux, is still intact and still ready to go, but middleweight prospect Brandon Gonzales is off the card after suffering a leg injury in training.

Gonzales (15-0, 10 KO) was set to make his second straight ShoBox appearance, after struggling past tough veteran Ossie Duran in late October. This time out, he was to be matched with Minnesota's Caleb Truax (18-0-1, 10 KO) in another decent test.

But with that fight off the card, a lightweight eight-rounder pitting Guy Robb (7-0, 3 KO) and 19-year-old Joel Diaz (6-0, 5 KO) has been added to the broadcast. The opener will still be the already-scheduled eight-round super flyweight bout between Matthew Villanueva (6-0-1, 6 KO) and Michael Ruiz Jr (8-1-1, 3 KO).

The three-fight card will air on January 20 at the normal ShoBox time of 11 p.m. EST. Bad Left Hook will have live coverage on the night of the fight, and will have more on Ramos vs Rigondeaux in the coming week.
