Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (39-0, 33 KOs) has a scheduled fight for his date with history.
On September 5th in Tokyo, Japan, González will attempt to become the 2nd Nicaraguan to become a three-time world boxing champion, when he faces Japanese, Akira Yaegashi (20-3-0, 10 KOs), who will defend his WBC Flyweight crown (112 lbs).
"Chocolatito" said he's delighted to get the opportunity to fight for a WBC title. He'll be facing one of the most talented boxers in the 112 pounds division.
"Yaegashi knows he will have a real tough fight with me. He's a fighter who hits hard. I had chance to see him fighting in Japan, but I'm fully confident that the title is coming back to Nicaragua with me, in the name of God," Gonzalez determinedly pointed out.
