If the phrase hard work was searched, a picture of young Queens native Daniel Gonzalez would appear. The young man once entered the small Universal Boxing Gym an overweight teen who had no idea what boxing was and just felt the need to get involved with something to lose weight and get off the street. Fast-forward to today and you can still see Gonzalez in Universal Boxing Gym but not as a pudgy teen, but a muscular 147lb athlete with an undefeated professional record of 6-0-1 with 3 knockouts. Before becoming a professional boxer, he had 70 amateur fights, obtaining the 152lb. Metros Championship, NY Championship, Golden Gloves Semi-finalist, Empire State Finalist and a spot at the National Quarter Finals. Working out two times a day as well as training other overweight youth like he once was, with his growing abilities Gonzalez went from being a novice, to carrying the torch in the 2010 Empire State Games, to working his way to an undefeated record on the cusp of a promotional agreement. Helping his own older brother literally shed 170lbs, Gonzalez is passionate about fitness, eating healthy, and boxing; he is a role model for other young men his age who look up to him as a rising star.
