Jesús Francisco Gómez (born February 4, 1992 in East Los Angeles, California), is an undefeated Mexican-American professional boxer. Gómez is currently signed with Oscar De La Hoya's[1] company Golden Boy Promotions.[2] Frankie's trained by five-time Trainer of the Year Freddie Roach.[3]

Amateur career[edit]

Frankie began boxing as an 8-year old and had an outstanding Amateur Record of 120-8.[4] In 2007 he took the Junior Olympic National Championship and Gold at the Cadet World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan.[5] Gómez won the U-17 2008 Cadet World Championships in the Light Welterweight division. In 2009 he became the U.S.A. Amateur National Champion at age 17 beating National Golden Gloves winner José Benavidez of Phoenix.[6] At the 2009 World Amateur Boxing Championships he went on to win a silver medal after losing to Olympic bronze medalist Roniel Iglesias.[7]

Professional career[edit]

Considered America's premiere amateur boxer when he turned Pro,[8] Oscar De La Hoya said of Francisco "I've been watching his career closely for years, and Gómez is one of the best amateur boxers I've seen in a long time. He's (Gómez) a true blue chip prospect, and he has all the tools to become a world champion and a star in this game."[9][10]

Frankie won his Pro Debut against veteran Clayvonne Howard by 3rd round TKO.[11] His third TKO victim was the Nigerian Akeem Akinbode, the fight took place on FSN's Fight Night Club.[12]

In his first fight with trainer Abel Sanchez,[13] Gómez beat the veteran Jason Davis by first round K.O.[14]

In July 2011, Frankie beat Khadaphi Proctor, the bout was televised on TeleFutura.[15]

Frankie will be fighting Humberto Soto on May 9 in Minute Maid Park on HBO World Championship Boxing. [1]
