“After fighting Navarrete, they will know a lot about Joet González”

Joet gonzalez (24-1, 14 KO) started boxing at the age of ten to defend himself. Now 27 (he will turn 28 on October 12), he is on the verge of contesting his second world title. It wasn’t a pipe dream for him when he first put the gloves on. “Since I entered the gym I knew I was going to be a professional boxer and world champion“he says in an interview on the podcast ‘Boxing on the Run‘. The Californian challenges Emanuel Navarrete (34-1, 29 KO) on October 15 for the WBO Featherweight World Cup. It will be the second time that the Golden Boy fighter has played that belt. The first, in 2019, lost to Shakur Stevenson. “Maybe it wasn’t my day. I have no excuses. I trained hard, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. Doing a second World Cup is different in terms of preparation. I think the first time, because I was so eager, I trained too much. Now I know that I should relax a few weeks before“, reveals.

González is a boxer unknown to the general public, but he is clear that everything will change in a few days. “People don’t know me, but after the fight against Navarrete they will know a lot about Joet González“He aims confidently. He arrives in a great moment of form, despite being inactive for a year. That does not worry him, he knows that the style of his rival is the most complicated.” I would have liked to fight more. I have two fights in two years, but I have not left the gym. I am always training. As for Navarrete, the most complicated thing he has is preparing the fight against a boxer like that, with that style. The punch … it is not known until we are in the ring, although I think it will not be so bad. The fighters so far have been smaller, I am their size and it will be difficult for me to connect, “he concluded.
