Rockin' Fights 37 To Settle Bad Blood Between Danny
Gonzalez & Johnny Hernandez On Nov. 23
When The Paramount marquee lights up with Star Boxing's "Rockin'
Fights" logo, boxing fans know they are in for a treat.
However, come November 23, boxing fans are in for more than
that when two hometown favorites in, DANNY "EL GALLO"
GONZALEZ (Woodhaven, NY 18-2-1 7KO's) and JOHNNY "HITMAN"
HERNANDEZ (Huntington, NY 10-4 1KO) settle their bad blood
in a rematch at the "Rockin' Fights 37" main event.
In September of 2019, Hernandez and Gonzalez met for the
first time at "Rockin' Fights," as both fighters took their
chance at earning the ABO Intercontinental Super Lightweight
Title. The 10-round bout was a back and forth battle that
had fans on their feet from the opening bell. The sold-out
crowd competed for sound-meter supremacy with alternating
chants of "Danny" and "Johnny." As intense as the crowd was,
the fight inside the ring met the energy at every level. At

Gonzalez went on to challenge former world champion, and
current world title contender, CHRIS ALGIERI (Huntington, NY
24-3 9KO's) at Madison Square Garden for the WBO
International Super Lightweight Title, in a tough battle of
wills. Most recently, Gonzalez went to battle with JEROME
CONQUEST in his second "Rockin' Fights" main event, adding
the WBC FECARBOX Super Lightweight Title to his collection
of belts. Hernandez returned in February of 2019 and went
toe to toe with MARQUISE HAWTHORNE at "Rockin' Fights,"
winning a decision victory.
Gonzalez and Hernandez are now set to return to The
Paramount on November 23. No twitter fingers, no talk, just
two men in a ring, settling their differences once and for
all. The winner will claim, unofficial King of the Paramount
bragging rights, two titles and a world level fight in 2020.
Danny Gonzalez had this to say about the rematch, "There are
levels to this sport, and I will show the fans the
difference between a full-time commitment to boxing as
opposed to a part time boxer. On November 23, I will most
definitely stop Hernandez, not only from running for his
life, but also stop his mouth from spewing negative comments
when he loses. We respect every fighter and never degrade
anyone, but in the last fight he went overboard. With this
fight, we will answer back not verbally as he does, but
physically and with my hand raised."
Johnny Hernandez said this about what fans can expect in the
rematch, "I am thankful to be able to showcase my hard work
again in front of my hometown friends and family. Last time
I guaranteed fireworks, this time I plan on ending the
Star Boxing CEO JOE DEGUARDIA said this about the "Rockin'
Fights" main event, "Both Danny and Johnny were developed
right here at The Paramount. Both of them have large and
vocal fan bases out here and the last time they met in the
ring it was electric. We are expecting no difference come
November 23, so be sure to get your tickets, because this is
a rematch you will not want to miss."
