Roman Gonzalez To Face Omar Soto on October 1

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

Another opponent has been brought in for Nicaraguan boxer Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (29-0, 22KOs), who defends his WBA junior flyweight title on October 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Within the last couple of weeks, Gonzalez thought he was facing Filipino Glen Donaire, Mexico's Gilberto Keb, but now "Chocolatito" will face Omar "Lobito" Soto (22-7-2, 15KOs).

"There is talk now that I'm facing Omar Soto. The opponent has changed several times, but the most important thing is that it's a very important fight for me in America," Gonzalez said. "The important thing is to fight well, and to be in good condition to fight with anybody."
