"These young men are real fighters and when I saw them in action in Puerto Rico I couldn't wait to sign them," said Shaw. "They fight with a real hunger and with real power. They train hard and they fight harder. They have real talent and great amateur pedigrees. I cannot wait to show them off on all my future cards."
Gonzalez boasts an amateur resume that includes a gold medal at the PanAmerican Games. In his debut under the GSP banner, he scored a fifth-round of Roberto Irrazary on April 7 in Springfield, MO. Cruz also made his GSP debut on that same card, scoring a six-round unanimous decision victory over Ricardo Medina. Cruz and Torres will be making their GSP debuts later this summer.
