  • This southpaw is a native of Tsetserlag, Mongolia, and is now training out of Los Angeles.
  • He had a considerable amateur career, to say the least. Among other accmplishments, he won the 2015 President’s Cup (bantamweight) and the 2018 Asian Games.
  • Went to the semifinals of the AIBA World Championships in 2019, but after a quick start, he slowed down against opponent Mirazizbek Mirzakhalilov of Uzbekhistan and lost a decision.
  • Went to the bantamweight quarterfinals of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where he lost a decision to curent junior lightweight champion Shakur Stevenson. Truth be told, he could not match up with Shakur’a speed, and seemed always a step behind.
  • Also lost in the quarterfinals of the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo.
  • Has been a contestant in the World Series of Boxing, a hybrid of sports between amateur and pro boxing.
  • Turned pro in September 2018 with a six-round decision win over Joseph Omana, who was a veteran of 18 pro fights.
  • Last fight was February 22 of last year (a year and a day ago), stopping Rauf Aghayev in two rounds.
  • This is not his heaviest weight. For the Omana fight (the debut), he was 136.
  • Generally he’s a quick starter. He’s aggressive, and you might expect some right hooks to the body, especially if Gonzalez stands still. Sometimes, however, the defense has been found lacking.
