Filipino Z "The Dream" Gorres, who is training at Freddie Roach's Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, is reportedly looking good in sparring.
This was reported today by his trainer Edito Villamor, who said that Gorres has now racked up some 36 rounds of sparring against a Mexican and Scotting sparring partner.
Gorres will take on dangerous Colombian Luis Melendez on Nov. 13 at the Mandalay Bay House of Blues in Las Vegas on the eve of the Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto superfight.
Villamor added that Team Gorres is slated to arrive in Vegas a week before the fight, and will be joined by the fighter's manager Michael Aldeguer and ALA Gym's Dennis Canete.
If successful against Melendez, Bob Arum of Top Rank had earlier indicated he wants to put Gorres in the next "Pinoy Power" card slated for February 13 at the Las Vegas Hilton possibly against Fernando Montiel.
