by David P. Greisman

HBOs ringside scorer Harold Lederman is a big fan of power-punching former 105- and 108-pound titleholder Roman Gonzalez, and hes hoping that his employer will begin to spotlight the fighter in his campaign in the flyweight division.

Hes something special, Lederman told Hes up to 38-0 now [with 32 knockouts]. I mean, to me, hes the second coming of Michael Carbajal. We all remember the great fights that Michael Carbajal had against Chiquita Gonzalez when we did buy flyweight fights on HBO [Carbajal and Gonzalez were lineal champions at junior flyweight].

I mean, those were three of the greatest fights anybody ever saw. People are still talking about Chiquita Gonzalez-Michael Carbajal. And now weve got a chance to do it again with Roman Gonzalez. I just think that we cant pass him up. Hes something special. Id love to see him on HBO.

So does Lederman have the pull to make it happen?

Ive tried numerous times, and Im not having any success whatsoever, Lederman said. But when Roman Gonzalez fights on HBO, blame it on me.

He should be on everyone's p4p list.

[QUOTE=Trudoe]Agree! But it's also up to Gonzalez, he should pursue getting an american promoter or manager who can assist in taking his career to the next level.[/QUOTE] The majority of fighters at the lower weights are not American, in fact i dont think there are any american champs below 135

Arum needs to trot him out against Viloria on an undercard.
