Said Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING, “Brashears was a very crafty fighter; he had a real solid amateur background and knew his way around the ring. It was another solid learning experience for Mike who continues to show great progress.
It’s been an outstanding year for Mike, he’s shown terrific improvement and we’re looking for great things from him in the future. I should have an announcement on his next fight shortly.”
Said the modest Gonzalez, “The fight went well, he was a skilled guy with fast hands and was tough to hit. He also had a solid chin as I hit him with some bombs that I was surprised he took. I’m glad the fans at Cicero Stadium enjoyed the fight; it’s always great to fight in Chicago.”
