Roman Gonzalez To Face Gilberto Keb on October 1
By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com
Promoter Fernando Sanchez of Prodesa has announced that a deal was reached for Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez to defend his WBA junior flyweight title against ex-beltholder Gilberto Keb Bass (35-21-4, 22 KOs) on October 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The event will be staged by Teiken Promotions, Zanfer Promotions and Top Rank. Previously, Gonzalez's promoter was trying to get him a Filipino opponent.
"Keb sounds like a good fight. If they tell me Mexican, if they tell me Filipino - it does not matter who I fight," Gonzalez said. "The most important thing is that I fight. I want to win for everyone in Nicaragua so they can enjoy my victory."
Keb was just tko'd y Adrian Hernandez, quite convinceingly , his last fight, so how does he qualify??? Losing has it's merits...This will be a slaughter!!!Comment by Shadows on 08-25-2011
Keb Baas as an opponent is a lot better than Donaire.Comment by elgranluchadore on 08-25-2011
if gonzalez has a bad night keb bas might beat him he's very crafty, unfortunately after such a long career keb chin is just not good anymoreComment by komandante on 08-25-2011
Roman Gonzales is dodging Filipino fighters. Make him fight Denver Cuello or Donnie Nietes, if not he'll be known as little Floyd.:boxing:Comment by Spray_resistant on 08-25-2011
