JACKSONVILLE, NC (January 19, 2022) – U.S. Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant abraham gonzales launched a new-age boxing podcast, “The Boxing Rush Hour Show‘, which falls every Wednesday.
Gonzalez’s plan is to serve boxing fans, give them what they want, and also what they need more of. The podcast will focus a lot on the future of boxing, so we won’t be there to give lukewarm opinions and foggy predictions about upcoming fights.
“The Boxing Rush Hour Show will feature news, recaps, previews and interviews from some of the biggest names in sport,” says Bronx native Gonzalez. “Our program will showcase young prospects with less than 10 fights, alongside promoters putting on club shows, executives making moves, and marketing reps developing their name brands.” Click here to listen to the debut episode.
Gonzalez, 42, is an active marine for more than 24 years, including deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as during 9/11. He is currently stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where he is the Major Subordinate Command Career Planner for the II Marine Expeditionary Force.
Boxing has always been a part of his life, which started in his early years. Abe said: “I started watching boxing when I was about five or six years old. My father was a huge boxing fan and that’s all we watched. After he passed away a little over a year ago, I felt like In order to continue contributing to the sport, I would remain connected to him in some way, beyond the natural love I will always have for him.”
Since 2017, Gonzalez has been working as a columnist at NYFights and today is also the editor-in-chief and manager of social media. his mentor, Michael Woods (ex ESPN Magazine, current publisher NYFights) continues to guide Abraham on his path in the sports content creation space.
“Abe is my right-hand man,” Woods says. “He’s so solid. I know I’ll say goodbye to him one day, because he’ll be hired by an industry giant if he wants to. But for now I’m lucky enough to be working with him. Abe deserves big credit for his hand in making NYFights so much better. People will see that even more soon, as NYF has been bought by a company that wants to make an impact in New York, where mobile sports betting is all the rage, and beyond. We will be revealing a revamp of the site soon, with more articles from some of the heavy hitters and of course the core squad. But right now the spotlight is on abe, and “The Boxing Rush Hour Show.” Abe’s track record with me has been rapid growth, delivered cheerfully, with a focus on quality… so I’m confident this podcast will be a pound for pound platform very soon.”
Gonzalez sums up why now is the perfect time to drop The Boxing Rush Hour Show. “While boxing and the country was on lockdown for much of 2020, I thought about some of the ways I could contribute to the sport,” said Gonzalez. “In 2021 we saw more maps happening and some great fights. Boxing is rising trend, which is why I know now is the right time to launch my podcast.”
