Former UFC Heavyweight Title Challenger Gabriel Gonzaga Wins Pro Boxing Debut

By Mike Fridley Oct 28, 2017
Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Gabriel Gonzaga won his pro boxing debut against Alejandro Esquilin Santiago via four-round majority decision at the DCU Center Exhibition Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts.

"I thought I'd be more relaxed in the ring like I had been in the gym," Gonzaga (1-0) said. "I did my best and came away with a victory. I was too safe in the third round. My punches were much strong and a lot of his punches I blocked with my gloves. This was really great! tonight"

Gonzaga, 38, of Rio de Janeiro, has a mixed martial arts record of 17-11.

"I felt good and gave it my all," Santiago (0-1) remarked. "He hit me with some shots and gave 'em back. Not only does he have a big nose, he has a strong, big head, too."
