Robby Gonzales secured Team USA’s second win with a unanimous decision victory over Morocco’s Ahmed Badrani on the second day of boxing at the 2024 World Qualification Tournament in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Gonzales, from Las Vegas, dominated the bout as he won the first two rounds 4-1 and then won the last round 5-0 leading to a unanimous decision victory.

The 2021 World Champion gold medalist will now fight on Monday against the winner of Thailand’s Weerapon Jongjoho and Vladimir Mironchikov, from Serbia.

“Got the first one out the way and I got four more to go,” Gonzales said.

The team is being guided by USA Boxing head coach Billy Walsh (Colorado Springs, Colo.), along with National Resident Coach Timothy Nolan (Rochester, N.Y.), as well as National Development Coach Chad Wigle (Colorado Springs, Colo.), along with assistant coaches Adonis Frazier (Minneapolis, Minn.) and Christine Lopez (Rowlett, Texas).
