March 22, 1997
Undefeated junior-middleweight P.J. Goossen of Palmdale signed a three-year contract with Santa Ana-based PJ Promotions on Friday that could net the boxer up to a million dollars. The contract calls for at least four fights in 1997, the first in April, and includes television guarantees, according to Pat Goossen, P.J.'s trainer and father. They hope to land a title fight in 1998. Goossen, 26, is 17-0 with 11 knockouts.
