DZINZIRUK-GONZALEZ FIGHT TO DRAW
By G. Leon
Undercard results from Verona, NY
Sergei Dzinziruk D12 Johnathan Gonzalez: After last night's HBO's Boxing After Dark in Verona, New York, Sergei Dzinziruk is still undefeated at 154 pounds. Unfortunately, he was facing an overweight Johnathan Gonzalez who came into the ring as a light heavyweight. Though the fight was professionally fought, neither boxer did anything that could remotely be considered eye opening. Gonzalez should be ashamed of himself for weighing in eight pounds overweight for his HBO debut, and even heavier at fight time, but he should be proud that he faced by far his toughest opponent to date wihtout any adversity. Official scores were 117-111 Gonzalez (by judge Tom Schreck), 115-113 Dzinzurik and 114-114. Boxingtalk scored the bout 114-114. Add Schreck to the ever growing list of judges to pay attention to for all the wrong reasons. source: HBO Boxing After Dark
