Roman Gonzalez-Raul Garcia Set For March 17 in Mexico

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

A deal has been reached. "Chocolatito" Roman González (30-0, 25KOs) will defend the junior flyweight championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA) against former beltholder Raul "Rayito" Garcia (32-2-1, 19KOs) on March 17th in Mexico.
 
"I'm happy because I will fight again in Mexico," said Gonzalez. "I wanted to make a defense to late February, and then go back to Mexico in March but we couldn't make anything."
 
"Chocolatito" has not fought since October of last year when he knocked out Omar Soto in two rounds in Las Vegas, Nevada.
