Roman Gonzalez Says He is Ready For The Big Stage

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

As previously reported, Nicaragua's Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (31-0, 26KOs) will make the second defense of his title on American soil, as he faces former champion Ramon "The Prince" Garcia (16-3-1, 9KOs) of Mexico on April 28th at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.

It will be Gonzalez's fourth defense of the World Boxing Association's junior flyweight crown. Undoubtedly by making his defense on U.S. soil, with the fight being broadcast on Azteca America in the United States, "Chocolatito" is raising his visibility in a very important boxing market .

"I am happy that this fight will be in America," Gonzalez said. "I want to be on the big stage in Las Vegas, New York, and this is a very good point in my career.

Last October Gonzalez made his debut in America, stopping Mexico's Omar Soto in the second round at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Gonzalez, guided by strong promotional companies Zanfer and Top Rank, wants to make a statement on April 28th in order to secure future positions on the major events in the United States.

I'm ready for Chocolatito to be on an undercard of a PPV fight already. Regardless I can't wait to watch this fight. :boxing:
