Kantun Planning For Mexican War With Roman Gonzalez

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Kantún (21-5-3, 15KOs) understands that he's a very huge underdog as he enters this Saturday's fight against two-division champion Roman "El Chocolatito" Gonzalez (37-0, 31KOs), regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport. Kantun will have the packed crowd behind him, as the fight takes place at Palenque de la Feria Mesoamericana in Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico.

"I know that I'm up against all odds, I'm going for it. It is time to show what Yucatecan fighters are made of. There have always have been great battles between Mexico and Nicaragua and I can assure you that Saturday night will be no exception," said Kantún.
 
"I'm not the favorite. He is a world champion who fights well, hits well, has a good guard, but I'm hungry for an opportunity in boxing, so I do not care who Chocolatito is. I'm going for it."

[QUOTE=Tom8888;14232430]More prospects need to fight each other.[/QUOTE] El Chocolatito is by no means a prospect. He's actually either the #7 or #8 P4P fighter in the world depending on who you're talking to.

Glad to see Roman back.... hopefully he gets a flyweight title late this year. Also, smart to stay with Tieken because of all the lower weight fights he needs to have. Big promoters don't seem to do as well with…
