Perhaps the true test of a fighter’s will and desire doesn’t come in the ring, but when the Thanksgiving dinner bell rings and he or she has to turn away, knowing that weigh-in day is 24 hours away.

That’s the situation junior welterweight prospect Daniel Gonzalez was in this week as he awaits Saturday’s bout with Danny O’Connor at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, but he wasn’t bothered at all.

“I’m not much of an eater at Thanksgiving,” he laughed. “I try to stay healthy all year round, so I try to stay away from things like that. I might have splurged a little bit, but it’s not that big of a deal. Thanksgiving will be after the fight.”

Daniel Gonzalez has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday week as he prepares to face Danny O’Connor tonight at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

For Gonzalez (14-0-1, 5 knockouts), who is a fitness buff, boxing is not only a gateway to a future world title opportunity but also a lifestyle choice that has already paid large dividends to both himself and his brother. Gonzalez, through his love for boxing and competing in the sport, has shed nearly 100 pounds and then helped his brother lose an astounding 170 pounds.

“I was extremely overweight,” Gonzalez told RingTV.com. “So, I understand the aspect what eating certain types of foods can cause, but it always comes down to one’s lifestyle. People will say you have to eat less, but it’s more complicated than that. What helped me and my brother was we changed our lifestyles and…
