The Elite Takes on a Top Contender (Kosei Tanaka vs Jonathan Gonzalez)

Japanese P4P 3-Division Champion & reigning WBO Flyweight World Champion 🇯🇵Kosei Tanaka (13-0-0, 7KO) will return to the ring on Monday, August 24th, and he will look to make the 2nd defense of his current World Title against #1 WBO World challenger 🇵🇷Jonathan Gonzalez (22-2-1, 13KO) from Caguas, Puerto Rico.

Tanaka has been a terror in both the Light-Flyweight & Flyweight divisions in these last few years, and has been that dominant presence against top-quality opposition, fighters such as current WBO Light-Flyweight Champion 🇵🇷Angel Acosta🇯🇵Sho Kimura (whom he won his latest Title from) & former Light-Flyweight Kingpin 🇯🇵Ryoichi Taguchi. Tanaka looks to continue his ascent on the lighter weight divisions at just the age of 24, and he has chosen the best challenger that the WBO can provide at this time. Gonzalez is a good fighter who has had some quality wins on his resume. His first loss was back in 2013 against highly touted 🇲🇽Giovani Segura, but he bounced back and put himself in this position by nabbing the secondary NABO Title Belt and defending it multiple times. This here will be Gonzalez official 1st opportunity at a World Title Belt, and he has to walk through one of the best fighters in the world to acquire it.
