Chocolatito: After I Win a Title, I Want Trilogy With Sor Rungvisai

By Haxel Ruben Murillo,

After he holds an upcoming meeting with promoter Akihiko Honda in Japan, where he intends to travel this month with his agent Carlos Blandón, the four-division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez will have much more clearer future for his career - and that includes an opponent, date and exact location of his next fight and also changes in  team, specifically in the corner, where they noticed a tangible deficiency during the rematch against Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on September 9 in Carson, California.

The only thing Roman has made clear so far is his desire to fight Khalid Yafai, who is 115-pound World Boxing Association (WBA) champion. The WBA practically put a title shot on silver tray a few days ago by placing him in the number two ranking position. 

"I hope that a good proposal will come. I expect an answer from Mr. Honda. We have certainly talked about the Yafai scenario," Gonzalez said in an interview with Channel 10.

It is clear that on Roman's part he would take the fight with Yafai himself, but he needs the approval of his promoter, Mr. Honda.

Of course, Gonzalez makes it clear that if he becomes the champion of the WBA, he would like the opportunity to have a third fight with Sor Rungvisai, who beat Gonzalez bu decision in March and last month in their rematch by a brutal knockout in the fourth round.

"I wanted to fight in December, but they did not give me the opportunity... they told me to rest. If I get a world title, I might get the opportunity with Rungvisai, I want to unify titles with him. Great things will come, there are boxers who have fallen and they have risen. I said that when I lose I would have no excuses... everywhere that I've gone people have responded very well, that fills me with satisfaction," Gonzalez said.

"In all of my fights I'm in the best condition, Rungvisai knocked me out, he landed a punch that I did not expect and he connected well. He is a very difficult southpaw, and I have to give him his credit, I have no excuses."

Roman also talked about the possibility of having a new trainer, explaining that "the main thing is to have a head coach, we are looking at options. We are all a team here, but the head of that team is Mr. Honda, he has the last word."

Chocolatito, don’t become addicted to smelling salt like has has. Find someone else that’s less dangerous. Face it, rungsivai has you number. Don’t even try it, unless he’s drunk.
