This past Friday as the main event of Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fight 32, Danny “El Gallo” Gonzalez upped his record to 17-1-1 with 7 KO’s when he scored a 10 round majority decision win over the tough and game Johnny “The Hitman” Hernandez, now 9-4; to win the ABO Intercontinental 140 lb title. While the score cards read 95-95, 97-93, and 98-92; there was no doubt that “El Gallo” did what he had to do to come out with a decisive victory, dragging Hernandez in to a tit for tat war while piling on the leather to secure the dominant victory over the stretch. It was a battle of attrition that Gonzalez made sure he would not lose, landing several hard right hands, stuffing a jab in to the face of Hernandez, and attacking the body at will while he pushed back his courageous foe. The crowd was constantly cheering for both warriors and it made for a classic night of boxing…now we look to stay busy and add some more belts to the collection of the Warrior Rooster!

On Friday night, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fights lived up to every bit of its expectation. Fans at The Paramount witnessed, knockouts, all out brawls, great boxing skills, and a main event for the ages.
The main event last night was a throwback to the glory days of boxing when neighborhood rivalries filled the venerable NY fight clubs as a sold-old crowd engrossed in the thrilling, tooth and nail war between DANNY “EL GALLO” GONZALEZ and JOHNNY “HITMAN” HERNANDEZ. The crowd was so loud that you could barley hear yourself think. The incredible back and forth action was amplified by the crowd’s alternating and competing shouts of “Johnny” and “Danny”.
Hernandez started the fight fast, boxing smartly in the first two rounds landing crisp combinations to the stalking Gonzalez. Gonzalez closed the distance in the third round and from that point on it became a war of attrition in a spectacular fight. Gonzalez finished a bit stronger as the ten-round epic battle came to a close with everyone standing and cheering. When the scores were read to a captivated crowd, the elated new ABO INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION, Danny Gonzalez fell to his knees at the center of the ring with his new title on his shoulder. Gonzalez improves to 17-1-1 (6 KO’s) while Hernandez drops to 9-4 (1 KO). The scores were 95-95, 97-93, and 98-92, for DANNY “EL GALLO” GONZALEZ (majority decision).”- BoxingNews24.com
