Roman Gonzalez-Manuel Vargas on Chavez-Medina Card

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com 

Román "Chocolatito Gonzalez has a chance to shine again in Mexico when he makes the first defense of the flyweight from the World Boxing Association (WBA), on March 19 against former Mexican champion Manuel "Chango" Vargas, who faced and lost to such champions as Giovanni Segura and Nonito Donaire.

Gonzalez won the interim WBA crown last October, beating Mexican Francisco Rosas in Japan. A few days ago he was named the regular champion after Argentine boxer Juan Carlos Reveco vacated the title to move up in weight.

The main event of the evening will be the fight presviously disclosed by BoxingScene.com, featuring WBC silver middleweight champion Julio César Chávez Jr. taking on David Medina.

Román “Chocolatito” González has a record of 27-0 with 23 knockouts, while Manuel “Chango” Vargas is 29-7-1 with 14 knockouts. Vargas is a former champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), but lost the crown to the filipino Donnie Nietes.

This is a joke, right? Vargas has lost four fights in the past 17 months and just got shelled by Segura three months ago. And now he's getting another title shot? Really?
