Full Version: Jhonny Gonzalez vs Gerry Penalosa
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
Is this week. Who wins? Gerry is considered the best technical fighter to come out of his country the Philippines. Gonzalez is a P4Per....knocked out Too Sharp Johnson in 8, Pacheco in 9, fought evenly with Montiel for 12 rounds, and was WHOOPING up on Vazquez for 7 rounds (scored 2 knockdowns) before suffering knockdowns in rounds 8 and 10.

This should be a good fight....I think Gonzlaez will take it by decision..but I'm rooting for Penalosa.

War Gerry!

He is the most technical Filipino Boxer today and isn't scared to bang like how he showed in the Ponce De Leon fight.

He has never been knocked down once and has only really lost one ONE fight. All other losses come from hometown decisions in Korea, Japan, and we all know what happened his last fight.
I believe that Jhonny should take this one. He is very rangy for this weight. I think that he will get better and better each fight. I believe he learned alot from the Monteil and Vasquez fights. Jhonny is a future P4Per IMO.
Penalosa couldn't deal with speed. His losses came against opponents who know not to mix it up.
Penalosa is a crafty guy but I think Johnny will stop him late in the fight.
I really like what I have seen out of Gonzalez. The Montiel fight was razor thin, but I scored it for him, and he was so impressive against Vazquez until perhaps the biggest puncher P4P caught him flush a few times.

That's a bigger disparity in the odds than I expected.
should be a other good night of boxing
I dunno man, Gonzalez seems easily distracted in there to me and I think Penalosa is going to puzzle him enroute to an upset win.
