Roman Gonzalez Praises Estrada, Offers Revenge Bout

By Miguel Rivera

Mexico's Juan Francisco "Gallo" Estrada (23-2, 18 KOs) and Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (32-0, 28 KOs) went to war last November. Gonzalez showed his skills to win a twelve round unanimous decision and retained the 108-pound title of the World Boxing Association (WBA). In the main event of that card, Brian Viloria knocked out Tyson Marquez to unify the WBA/WBO titles at 112-pounds.

Last Saturday night in China, Estrada moved up to 112-pounds and defeated Viloria to capture those WBA/WBO titles.

Gonzalez, who wanted to face Viloria in the summer, praised Estrada for the victory and offered him the opportunity to avenge last year's loss.

"I congratulate Estrada for his victory, it was a great demonstration. I think he should have won by unanimous decision, but that's the way things are. He's a good fighter and deserves to be world champion. After our fight, he told me that he wanted a rematch. Well, if he stills wants it - I'm ready to face him at 112 pounds. And if not, then I'll gladly fight with anyone else," said Chocolatito.

It would be a [I]great[/I] fight at 112. He looked better at 112 than when he last fought Gonzalez at 108. I would absolutely love to see that fight!

Gonzalez should fight Viloria & the winner gets the rematch with Estrada. He has to earn his ranking in Flyweights.
