Make or break fight for underdog vs. 2016 Olympic bronze medalist Nico Hernandez
March 25 on CBS Sports Network live from Kansas Star Arena
MULVANE, Kansas (February 23, 2017) – Flyweight Patrick Gutierrez is going into his nationally-televised, main event showdown, March 25 in Kansas with high expectations against pro-debuting 2016 Olympic junior flyweight bronze medalist Nico Hernandez. Gutierrez is training hard in Las Vegas for his scheduled six-round “Knockout Night Boxing: History Begins” headline bout to derail hometown hero Hernandez’ coming out party
“This fight is make or break for me,” the 22-year-old Gutierrez said about his ‘Rocky’-like moment. The crowd won’t bother me because I enjoy fighting in front of large crowds. I’ve learned the hard way that, fighting my opponent in his backyard, I can’t leave it in the hands of the judges. I watched Nico fight in the Olympics. I have a lot of respect for him and was proud of him for winning the bronze medal for our country. But, I also saw some flaws from the fight that he lost. He’s in trouble if he hasn’t corrected those flaws.”
