Jonathan Guzman is 22-0 with 22 knockouts in his professional career. Knockout artist Jonathan Guzman scored a scintillating 11th-round KO against Shingo Wake to claim the vacant IBF World super bantamweight title along with $70,000 in cash for his purse back on July 20. Guzman’s promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz, confirmed the news with Yahoo Sports.
Although Antonio Vargas still thinks about the cut that nearly ended his Olympic dream, his unprotected head will be clear when he steps into the ring in Rio de Janeiro. Vargas grew up sparring and competing in protective headgear, so he had never been cut in a fight before his face split open in that bloody loss at the U.S. Olympic team trials seven months ago. Cuts haven't been a major concern in Olympic boxing since 1980, but they will be a constant danger in Rio, where the 250 male fighters will box without headgear for the first time since Moscow.
