He is the son of a legend, Cuba’s hardest hitting boxer ever, Jose Gomez Mustelier, who won a gold medal in the 1980 Moscow Olympics, the 1978 World Amateurs, and 1979 Pan American Games. With over 250 amateur fights, Gomez is considered one of the best fighters to ever come out of Cuba. Known for his relentless style and power, fans can expect to see fireworks every time he steps in the ring.
“Making my way to the United States of America has been a childhood dream of mine ever since I started boxing at age seven,” said Gomez. “I’ve always fantasized about fighting in the States and now that is about to become a reality. I’m very hungry to show the world my God given talent, and I can’t wait to make my USA debut. Everyone who has seen me fight, knows I’m coming to do damage. Fans will see an explosive fighter when they see me in action, that you can guarantee.”
Geovany “La Bestia” Bruzon (6-0, 5 KOs) is a power punching bridgerweight who stands 6′ 4″. Born in Holguin, Cuba, the 23-year-old fights out of the southpaw stance. Already fighting in 10-round bouts, Bruzon is the current WBC Continental Latino American Bridgerweight Champion and possesses the #23 ranking. With excellent feet to go with his large frame, Bruzon has all the facets to become Cuba’s first heavyweight champion of the world. World renowned trainer, Joe Goossen, will be guiding his corner as his trainer.
“When I come to America, my goal is to be known as the most dangerous man in boxing,” stated Bruzon. “I know I have a long way to go, but I have big dreams to become a household name in the sport of boxing. Training in Los Angeles with Joe Goossen is going to be the turning point in my career because I know I’ll be sparring the best fighters in the world, with one of the best coaches in boxing. I just want to win a world title for all my people back home in Cuba.”
Lenier “El Justiciero” Pero (5-0, 3 KOs), a 28-year-old heavyweight southpaw, stands 6′ 3 1/2″ and was born in Camaguey, Cuba.

He is the current WBA Fedelatin Champion, and beat Frank Sanchez WBA #14, six times as an amateur.
“My career is about to take another turn in the right direction,” said Pero. “Everyone knows that you must fight in America if you want to make it in boxing. I’ve made a lot of sacrifices, leaving family and friends back home, but this is what I’ve chosen to do. When I arrive in the States, I’m going to work extra hard to be the best version of myself. I’m excited about the next journey of my life.”
