NEW YORK, NY (April 21ST, 2018) – TONIGHT, two undefeated prospects under the El Matador Management banner will be in action as part of a big card at the King’s Theatre in Brooklyn, New York.
Welterweight Mathew Gonzalez will take on Demetrius Wilson, while super welterweight Justin Biggs will take on fellow undefeated Dominik Csaba Karoly in a six-round bout.
Gonzalez (4-0, 3 KOs) of Queens, New York is ready for the eight-fight veteran, Wilson.
“Everything is doing well. I had excellent sparring, and my weight is good. I am just ready for Saturday,” said Gonzalez.
Gonzalez does not know much about much about his foe, but he is ready for whatever Wilson will bring to the squared circle on Saturday.
“I know he fought on the same show of my last fight. He fought a stablemate (Cesar Francis) of mine. That is about all that I know about him.”
This will be the 3rd consecutive fight for Gonzalez in Brooklyn, and the Queens native is happy to perform in front of familiar faces.
“It means a lot to fight in Brooklyn because I can fight in front of my family and friends. I had over 150 people at my last fight, and it means a lot to perform in front of them.”
Gonzalez would like to give himself a belated birthday present with a win on Saturday night.
“I feel good. Thursday was my 23rd birthday. I will have five fights in 11 months, and I am with good people with Real Deal Promotions and El Matador Management. I am hoping by my 25th birthday that I am 15-0. Right now, I just want everyone to keep their eyes on me. Saturday there will be fireworks in my bout, and I will guarantee excitement.”
Biggs of Brooklyn will look to keep his perfect knockout streak in-tact as he looks to go to 4-0 when he takes on fellow undefeated foe Dominik Csaba Koroly (2-0-1) of Hungary.
“My camp went great. I am in good spirits, and I am confident. I am excited to perform on Saturday,” said the 26 year-old Biggs.
“I have seen tape of Koroly. He is slick, and he is coming from Hungary. He is a fighter who has good defense and he likes to come forward, so this should be an exciting test for me.”
While most fighters are reluctant to take on an undefeated fighter so early in their career, Biggs knows that taking on good competition will serve him in the long run.
“I relish this opportunity. I have been getting respect for facing an undefeated guy. I am taking the appropriate steps to become great.”
This will be Biggs’ 2nd straight bout at the King’s Theatre, and 3rd straight in New York. Biggs, who is trained by championship trainer Yoel Judah, and the brother of former top prospect Raymond Biggs, Jr., enjoys being home, and feels that gives him aura of being comfortable as he heads into his 4th bout.
“Fighting at home is amazing. I had a big turnout for my last fight at The King’s Theatre, and the best part about it, I can sleep in my own bed and not have to get used to different surroundings the week of the fight.”
“I want to thank Real Deal Promotions Eric Bentley and Kevin O’Sullivan along with Felipe Gomez of El Matador Management. Because of them, I am getting known. People are catching on to who I am, and that is because of them. I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and those who will come out on Saturday. It is going to be an exciting night on Saturday.”
“It’s going to be an exiting night for my guys” said Felipe Gomez. “They both are stepping up their competition which I firmly believe will help them get better and build their confidence in the future. I am happy to see my guys staying busy and I want to thank The Real Deal Boxing for continuing to put on these great shows!”
