CES MMA will make its first trip to Boston on April 16th and is to be headlined by a featherweight bout between Andres Jeudi and Pedro Gonzales.
Training out of Sityodtong in Boston, Jeudi is a dynamic striker with a perfect 7-0 kickboxing record to his name. His spotty record of late can be explained away by quality of opponent and style of fight, as Jeudi has never been knocked out or submitted in 12 professional bouts.
As well-versed in grappling as Jeudi is in striking, Pedro Gonzales will be looking to earn his fourth straight victory by handing Jeudi the first stoppage loss of his career. With an impressive 10-5 record and 9 of those 10 wins coming by submission, Gonzales is will be looking to sink in that famous guillotine in his CES debut.
CES MMA 35 is expected to take place at the North Shore Music Theatre in Boston, MA on April 16th. Both Andres Jeudi and Pedro Gonzales shared their predictions for how the fight will play out:
He has a lot of aggression, but I see a lot of his openings that I’m going to take advantage of on April 16. I’m not necessarily a counter-striker, but he has way too many holes in his striking. I’m a way better striker than he is.
Honestly, that’s great that he can see that. But I don’t feed into stuff like that. He can say what he wants. All I know is that, come April 16, I’m going to have my hand raised. And that’s all that matters to me. If he can see holes in my game, that’s great. Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the face — or choked unconscious.
