Chavez Sr. is Very Impressed With Roman Gonzalez

By Osman Rosales Cruz, notifight.com

The legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. is very impressed with WBA junior flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (30-0, 25KOs). On Saturday night in Chavez's hometown of Culiacan, Gonzalez will take part in a ten round non-title clash against Manuel "Meny" Jimenez, (11-2-1, 5KOs). Should Gonzalez win, he moves forward to an April 21st defense against former champion Ramon "The Prince" Garcia.

"He is a born puncher, hurtful and he knows how to throw punches up and down, but I think we need to see him face tougher opponents. I think he takes a lot of unnecessary punishment, but he needs to work on his defense to combat that. I have no doubt that he will be one of the best in the world in the smaller weights. He's smart in the ring and has a good line of attack. 'Chocolatito' can beat everyone at that weight, but his defense needs to improve. I would like to see him fight Archie Solis. It would be a challenge because Archie is experienced and a tough fighter," Chavez said.
