Jonathan Gonzalez-Norberto Gonzalez Set for ESPN2

By Matthew Paras

Jonathan Gonzalez will face Norberto Gonzalez as the main event of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” on February 7 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, promoter Leon Margules told Maxboxing.
Jonathan Gonzalez, 17-0-1 (14), is coming off a fifth-round win over Jaison Palomeque in December and is riding a two-fight win streak after drawing against Serhiy Dzinziruk on HBO in September of 2012.

Norberto Gonzalez, 20-2 (13), last fought in November, upsetting Brazilian Michael Oliviera by unanimous decision. Norberto fought twice in 2013 after taking a three-year hiatus from the sport.
In the co-main event, polish prospect Kamil Laszczyk, 15-0 (7), will face Daniel Diaz, 20-5-1 (14).  Laszczyk is the latest in the line of Polish fighters to try and make a mark in the “Windy City,” Andrzej Fonfara, Artur Szpilka and Krzysztof Wlodarczyk among them.
Chicago super middleweight Donovan George also will make his return on the card. George will move back up to super middleweight after a failed campaign at 160, where he drew with David Lopez and Caleb Truax stopped him in six. No opponent has been set.
