Mayweather-Berto: Gonzalez-Oquendo Added

By Elliot Foster (@FreelanceFoz)

Jhonny Gonzalez will take on Jonathan Oquendo next month.

The pair, who are from Mexico and Puerto Rico respectively, will clash at the MGM Grand.

Gonzalez and Oquendo will box over 10 rounds on September 12 as part of the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s WBC & WBA Super welterweight title defence against Andre Berto.

Also on the bill, Hammersmith super middleweight George Groves will hope that it’s third time lucky when he challenges US-based Swede Badou Jack for the WBC title.

Groves, 21-2 (16), has been unsuccessful in two challenges for the WBA and IBF crowns against the now-retired Carl Froch in November, 2013 and May, 2014 respectively.

Elsewhere, Roman Martinez will defend his world title on the bill.

‘Rocky’ will put his WBO super featherweight title on the line against Orlando Salido –– the man he dethroned on points in April to claim the crown –– in an immediate rematch.

And Ishe Smith will take on Vanes Martirosyan over 10 rounds, while ‘The Money Team’ featherweight prospect Gervonta Davis, 20, who is 11-0 (10), is set to feature on the card.
