According to Silvio Conrado Jr., attorney for the former two-division champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (38-0), a potential fight with WBC flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi is in the works for a date in August. 

Both boxers will be featured in separate fights on April 6th in Tokyo, as part of a plan to build their anticipated fight in August. Gonzalez has yet to finalize the opponent for that date, but Conrado says they are trying to get someone "with characteristics similar to Yaegashi." Yaegashi (19-3, 9KOs) will defend his title on the card against Mexico's Odilon Zaleta (15-3-1, 8KOs).

[QUOTE=hitking]You got that right. But, they never will. Flyweight is an awesome division. And all of these top guys have fought and are willing to fight each other. But for whatever reason, the networks are stuck in the mindset that nobody wants to see fly and bantamweights. I've been saying for...
