Roman Gonzalez Shreds Nietes: He Was Scared, He Ran

By Osman Mendez Cruz

Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (32-0, 27 KOs), the WBA's junior flyweight champion, is upset with the failed negotiations to make a unification bout with Filipino Donnie Nietes (30-1-3, 16 KOs), holder of the WBO championship. According to Gonzalez, his handlers tried to put the fight together for September 29th at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California - as part of the Tyson Marquez vs. Brian Viloria undercard.

"I wanted to face Nietes face but he was afraid. My attorneys told me they would not take the fight and that's cowardice, because months ago I made ​​a public challenge and when he gets the opportunity to fight - he ran," said Roman.

Gonzalez is still training for a fight on September 29th. He doesn't know the planned opponent at the present. One possible name is Felipe Salguero (16-3-1, 11 KOs).

"I will continue working hard every day and hopefully the next time I make a challenge Nietes will have the courage to accept it. My intention is to fight the best," Roman said.

That would have been a good fight card.

Nietes is one of the most underrated champions out there. Great movement and technical skills. No way in hell he's afraid of this gonzalez cat, but the business side of boxing tends to muck these things up. Nietes would melt…
