Roman Gonzalez Drills Manuel Jiminez in The First Round

By Miguel Rivera

Palenque de Gallos in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico - Nicaraguan WBA junior flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez wasted no time, as he scored a first round knockout over Mexico's Manuel "Meny" Jimenez at 2:58 of a non-title bout.

Gonzalez looked anxious to throw big punches from the opening bell. He jumped to the center of the ring and threw calculated power punches right away. Jiminez was taking damage early. Jiminez continued to take punishment until he had enough after going down at the end of the first.

Gonzalez improves his record to 31-0, with 26 knockouts, while Jimenez falls to 11-3-1, 5 KOs. "Chocolatito" is scheduled to return on April 21 in Morelia, Mexico against former world champion Ramon "Prince" Garcia.

[QUOTE=Suavecito80;11902500]I could respect that.. I still remember him fighting in Japan and straight working people over there. And with me being Nicaraguan I have even more interest in him getting better. Lets see if Solis is up to the challenge.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=Roman Moreno;11902430]I would favor Roman too. But, that's because Chocolatito has been my dude for like 5 or 6 years. But, really besides Niida actually lets just focus at 108 he hasn't beaten anyone near the level of those guys…

[QUOTE=Suavecito80;11902413]He would beat both of those dudes. The only thing isn't Nietes dirty as hell? Its either him or another filipino fighter that likes to elbow and hit in the nuts. Regardless, I don't see either of those fighters beating…
