Roman Gonzalez Could Be Facing Ryo Miyazaki Next

By Marcelino Castillo, notifight.com

Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (32-0, 27KOs) is still relishing his recent victory over former world champion Ramon "Prince" Garcia of Mexico. Gonzalez retained his WBA junior flyweight title last Saturday in California with a four round stoppage of Garcia.

"Chocolatito" is planning to stay at 108-pounds, for the moment, and there are ongoing discussions to face an undefeated Japanese challenger in his next fight, with a good purse being provided.

"We are negotiating the fight, and making sure that things are better in my career," he said. "For now rule I'm going to rule out a move to 112-pounds. I want to be the super world champion of the WBA with five defenses of the crown. Chances are that we may fight in June or July in Japan, that's what I want," Gonzalez said.

International promoter Akihiko Honda would promote the event. The opponent being discussed is local prospect Ryo Miyazaki, unbeaten in 16 fights, with three draws and 10 knockouts.

Hope this fight gets streamed back to the States. Gonzalez is a hell of a fun fighter to watch. As he gets older and moves up weight classes, hopefully he lands some network fights on HBO or Showtime to get…
