By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (June 4, 2008)  
Friday night at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center, as part of the supporting undercard of Urbano Antillon vs Jose Leonardo Cruz, Lucian Gonzalez takes on Castulo Gonzalez.

In a recent interview by Don Stewart of the Reading Eagle, Lucian who hails from Puerto Rico was asked who his favorite fighter was when he was growing up? You'd think with his
heritage he'd choose someone like Tito Trinidad, however Lucian answered the question by naming Oscar De La Hoya as his favorite.

Through a translator, Lucian went on to add: "It doesn't matter what race you are. I've always followed De La Hoya's style, and I've always liked him. Even though he was in some battles with Puerto Ricans, I've always looked up to him as an idol."

Lucian is 25 years old and has a record of 5-4-1. His opponent for Friday, Castulo Gonzalez has a record of 9-6-0.
