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.

Isn't this guy from Nicaragua or El Salvador? Unless i'am thinking of a different boxer, but this guy can fight and looks to be a great boxer in the making with great boxing skills.

A fight against Segura would be fun but Gonzalez's technique would be too much for Segura. Viloria can give him plenty of problems if he can fight to his full potential. Unfortunately we might never see those fights. There just isn't enough interest in these lower divisions.

[QUOTE=Roman Moreno]He is co-promoted with Teiken Promotions and Zanfer promotions.[/QUOTE] Which are not horrible promotional companies but he needs to unify and become the clear cut #1 (in my eyes he is) with all of the belts so he can move and beat the brakes off of segura.

[QUOTE=Sin City]2-1 (5KOs) huh.. he must've knocked out the ref and a few of the judges[/QUOTE] About time Mexican fighters started KOing some of those bastard Mexiphobic judges.:killyou::killyou::killyou:
