Eddie Gomez Seeks Cross-Town
Showdown With Sadam Ali
Eddie ‘E-Boy’ Gomez, (22-3-0, 12 KOs), of Bronx, NY is
looking to close a deal for a cross-town showdown against
former world champion Sadam ‘World Kid’ Ali,
(27-2-0, 14 KOs), of Brooklyn, NY, potentially planned for
May 4 in Las Vegas, NV on the undercard of the World
Middleweight Championship between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and
Daniel Jacobs at the T-Mobile Arena.
“We’re really pushing for that fight. It’s a great fight for
both guys with a huge upside for the winner,” said Tim Van
NewHouse of Split-T Management, manager of Gomez. “Eddie and
Sadam have been circling each other for a couple of years,
now they both need a big fight and their both competing at
welterweight. Eddie is coming off two terrific wins last
year and is primed and ready for this challenge.”
“The ball is in Ali’s court, we’re ready to roll on May 4.”
The 26-year-old Gomez knocked out the highly regarded
Keandre Gibson in the second round on March 22, 2018.
Following up on that victory the Honduran born Gomez won a
unanimous decision over Shoko Sakai on October 18, 2018.
Ali captured the WBO Super Welterweight World Title by
defeating Puerto Rican legend Miguel Cotto on December 2,
2017 at Madison Square Garden. Battling Jaime Munguia in his
next bout on May 12, 2018, Ali would relinquish the title in
his first defense.
Ali is coming off a dominant performance on December 15,
2018, winning a ten-round decision over Mauricio Herrera.
