Roman Gonzalez is King After Reveco Drops WBA Belt

By Hilmar Rojas

The Argentine boxer Juan Carlos Reveco is no longer the absolute flyweight champion after he resigned late Friday in a letter addressed to the World Boxing Association. Now, Roman "Chocolate" Gonzalez is the new king at 108 pounds.

In the letter, Reveco said he was going up to 112 pounds and requested to be recognized as the number one ranked challenger in the category, and points to a fight with the new interim-champion, Venezuelan Jean Piero Perez, as his first opponent.

The Nicaraguan González enjoyed the status of interim champion, so now he gets to reign as the full champion.

Segura vs Gonzalez make it happen! I hope Segura does not move up though.

Shame, Reveco-Gonzalez would've been a good fight.

Hard to care about men who weigh less than 110 pounds.

Really too bad because I think Reveco is a pretty good fighter and would have given Gonzalez the best fight he's had in a while. Reveco is having management problems too, so I wonder if he'll actually get any good…

Wow...Not only did Reveco ducked Gonzalez. But, Chocolatito chased him out of the division smh. So I doubt Roman will not fight this month like it was original plan. Which sucks...
