Roman Gonzalez is Training For The Fight of His Life

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

Nicaraguan boxer Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez is working at full capacity in a gym in the San Judas neighborhood of Managua. Gonzalez is focused on one goal, to defeat Japan's Akira Yaegashi, the flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), on the 5th of September in Japan.

If Gonalez wins, he would become the only Nicaraguan fighter other than the legendary Alexis Arguello to win world titles in three weight divisions. That's a huge commitment and Gonzalez is taking it very seriously.

Gonzalez had planned to travel on August 5 to Tokyo, to get adjusted for the fight with Yaegashi, but now he is traveling over in mid-August, according to information from Japanese promoter Akihiko Honda.
 
The Nicaraguan puncher has a very impressive record of 39-0 with 33 knockouts and Yaegashi is 20-3 and 10 wins by KO.

"Honestly, I'm doing good work in the gym. My physical training has been good, I feel good and hope to do the best job possible before traveling to Japan," Gonzalez said.
 
"The most important thing is to use the time in Nicaragua to get in the best shape possible for Japan. We will not leave on August 5, but that does not matter because the work being done in Nicaragua is hard."

Roman Gonzalez had been one of the best fighters in the world for the past 2 years. It is just a shame that few people know about him.

Is this going to be aired by Showtime or HBO? It's a shame that Gonzalez gets such little fanfare.
