“A Fighter's Chance” by Niagara Falls native Gabriel Gonzalez is the most recent release from No Frills Buffalo publishing company. No Frills Buffalo also published Gonzalez’s first book, “Legend of the Phoenix, Rise of Crescent,” in early 2012.
Gonzalez is a graduate of Niagara Catholic High School and Buffalo State College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology in 2005 and minored in religious studies. When he was just 15 years old, he and a friend were hired to clean out the upstairs of an abandoned building to make way for a new boxing gym. When the gym opened, Gonzalez signed up to see how he would like it and has never looked back. Boxing taught him how to be self-confident, disciplined and patient, and changed his outlook on life.
