By Osman Rosales Cruz

The junior flyweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez, has declared himself ready to trade punches with Japan's Kazuto Ioka (11-0, 7 KOs), who on December 31st stopped Jose Rodriguez in six rounds to capture the vacant WBA "regular" junior flyweight title. The title became vacant when the WBA made Gonzalez the "super champion."

Both Gonzalez (34-0, 28KOs) and Ioka, 23, are former straweight champions who moved up in weight for bigger fights. The two boxers have to face each other, per the WBA, within 90 days of 12/31. Gonzalez is no stranger to fighting in Japan and enjoys spending time in the country.

"I like the fact that [Ioka] won because it gives me the opportunity to go to [Japan] again and prove my potential. Ioka is a good fighter, but when we collide he will face someone who is better," Gonzalez said.

The fight might be held in mid-April in Japan, with promoter Akihito Honda of Teiken staging the event.

I think people tend to underrate how good Ioka has looked for having such a limited number of fights.

I really like both fighters but would favor Chocolatito , Ioka needs a bit more seasoning doubt he'll be able to handle the pressure Gonzalez will force on him. Gonzalez is prolly more hesitant of the weight jump then Viloria he seems to be a more natural JrFly

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]Normally I would agree but the guy with 34 fights has a padded record and the guy with 11 fights is a 3 time world champion.[/QUOTE]Omar Soto alobe is better than all of Ioka's opponents put together.
