Introducing Jair ‘Conejo’ Gonzalez
The World Boxing Council inaugurates this weekly section with the intention of giving a space to all prospects who enter the ring with the dream of conquering maximum sporting glory.
The first years as a pro are among the most complicated. Young fighters step into the ring to fight authentic 4 and 6 round wars, to gain popularity, a way of living and take gradual steps towards the ultimate culmination in boxing and for this reason, the WBC have decided to recognise their efforts, determination and hunger.
Recognised this week is the Mexican fighter Jair ‘Conejo’ González (13-6-2, 7KO) due to his pro record, extensive amateur experience and unlimited courage.
Mexico City’s ‘Conejo’ González, has achieved 7 of his 13 victories by way of KO, has an aggressive style that is based on his excellent physical condition and his indomitable heart. Always ready to fight wherever and whenever, he has three outstanding fights outside of Mexico, highlighting his victory in England against the then unbeaten British boxer Billy Stuart, who was 10-0 at the time.
The 23-year-old has challenged for the WBA Fedelatin bantamweight title before, in March 2022, knocking down Liborio Solis in the second round, but ultimately losing by just a single point over 10-rounds at 94-95 twice and 93-96. Prior to that he was beaten unanimously for the WBC Lation featherweight title in December 2021.
As described by the historic heavyweight world champion Jack Dempsey: “A Champion is someone who gets up when he can’t”. Ranked No.8 bantamweight in Mexico, Jair has suffered defeats; however, he has always managed to rise stronger than before and it is a foregone conclusion that on September 22 he will put on a formidable fight.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said, “We wish Jair González great success in his professional career and we urge him to never lose the motivation and heart that distinguish him every time he steps into the ring.”
