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.

I forgot to add in one of the posts earlier that while Gonzalez has built up a great looking record mostly on less than worthy challengers. He has tried to line up some decent names that fell through. Iola's handlers made it clear they didn't want the fight and I don't think Nietes was interested...

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]Yeah it was his debut but Yaegashi only had 10 or 11 fights himself at that point and was rebuilding after his failed bid against Kyowa. And I agree that Gonzalez's wins over Niida and Takayama are very solid names but those fights happened in 2008 and 2009. Between 2010 to pr...

[QUOTE=LowBlowKO]I agree COMPLETELY on Akira's eyes but the competition is something we'll have to disagree with. It's not just Estrada and Rodriguez Jr that Gonzalez has beaten, how about Niida and Takayama? Amazing to to think that Gonzalez has beaten two fighters who are fighting each other in...
