Roman Gonzalez Eyes December Fight, Wants Segura

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

Nicaraguan boxer Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez does not want to waste any time. Last Saturday in Las Vegas, it took him two rounds to stop Mexico's Omar "Lobito" Soto. Gonzalez wants to make the fourth defense of his WBA junior flyweight title in the month of December.

"I want to defend in December. I've talked to some people in the [Nicaraguan] government and I hope they make the fight, "Gonzalez said. "I have no opponent for a defense in Nicaragua, but he could be a Panamanian or a Mexican. The most important thing is that the fight gets done, and to close the year with four title defenses. I thank God that everything went well on Saturday and hopefully I'll have the backing to make a big fight here."

"Chocolatito" has no immediate plans to move up to the flyweight division, where a potential fight could take place with Mexico's Giovani Segura.

"I don't like to talk about opponents, but I would like to fight Segura Segura," said Gonzalez. "But he's at 112 pounds, I am at 108, and I sincerely want to do about four or five more fights at this weight. The weight is affecting me and I don't like the idea of jumping up and leaving the title at this time."

"He fought Calderon at 108, then he can do it with me at this weight. I can not go up right now, but he can drop down like he did with Calderon."
