Chocolatito To Return in April or May, Possibly on Canelo-GGG II

By Miguel Rivera

The return of Nicaraguan superstar Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez may ot take place until April or May of 2018, according to promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions.

Loeffler does not rule out the possibility of the four division world champion making his return as part of the undercard to Gennady Golovkin's next fight, even if GGG's next opponent will be Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

During his visit to Mexico City, Loeffler also said that the remaining details are nearly complete to formally announce the anticipated card called Superfly 2. They are working out the undercard details to support the big main event, which is going to feature a fight between WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and mandatory challenger Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada.


When questioning Loeffler about Chocolatito, he told ESPN Deportes:

"For Superfly 2, [Gonzalez will not return on that card], we're thinking about that he could come back underneath a Golovkin fight, and if it's with Canelo then maybe on that same card. It's just a matter of making some calls and let's see what they say," Loeffler said.

So once Román was ruled out for Superfly 2, Loeffler was asked about the possible combinations for the card.

"Estrada and Rungvisai are definitely going to face each other, it is not official yet because of the date and location [are in the process of being finalized] but the WBC ordered it, the two of them agreed - and we are only waiting for the details from HBO and the arena, but we hope to have an announcement soon," Loeffler said.

"(Naoya) Inoue wants to fight, (Carlos) Cuadras wants to fight, Khalid Yafai of England wants to fight, (Jerwin) Ancajas too, it has to be a great show and we only hope to make the most ideal combinations and maybe in the next 10 days we will have a official announcement."

In the first Superfly card, Chocolatito was knocked out cold by Rungvisai, while Estrada won a decision over Cuadras and Inoue retained the WBO super flyweight title by knockout over Antonio Nieves.

Cool stuff, I like watching him fight, great technique and exciting fights! Hopefully he can bounce back and in the end, retire with a win. Hate to see fighters retire with a last fight being a loss

Just stop man. I could see he was a shot fighter before the last fight even started. His face looks swollen and the light is gone from his eyes. I hope he doesn't end up like Ali
