Ioka Could Be Walking Away From Roman Gonzalez Shot

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

WBA "regular" junior flyweight champion Kazuto Ioka could be backing away from a mandatory fight with the WBA's "super champion" Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez. The World Boxing Association ordered a purse bid on February 18th. 

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Prodesa, along with co-promoter Akihiko Honda, offered a purse of $125,000 to the representatives of Ioka to organize the fight Gonzalez and avoid the purse bid.

But there is still no response from Ioka's handlers, who have scheduled an early meeting with Mr. Honda, in Japan, to negotiate before the purse bid.

Nicaraguan matchmaker Ricardo Rizzo, who works with Prodesa, said recently that Ioka's managers may request an extension to avoid a clash with Gonzalez.

Sucks, was looking forward to it. I think Ioka should take the fight, this is his big chance to make noise in the lower weights.

I think he has the skills to take and win this fight. It's not an easy task but it's doable. Best of luck to both fighters.

I made comments similiar about Ioka just not having enough seasoning ,, Chocolatito is a monster and taking a few more fights and explore the fight later in the year or '14 is probably a wiser decsion

Posted about this earlier. Ioka's father and uncle don't believe he is ready for Gonzalez. Negotiations for Ioka to face WBA interim champion Alberto Rossel will be taking place and Gonzalez will move up in weight.
