Team Gonzalez: Yaegashi Will Not Last Eight Rounds

By Elisinio Castillo

Former minimumweight and junior flyweight world champion Roman "Chocolatito" González of Nicaragua finished up his final sparring session for the upcoming fight on the 5th of September against the Japanese champion Akira Yaegashi, who holds the world flyweight title of the World Council Boxing (WBC).
 
After the sparring, "Chocolatito" (39-0, 33 KOs) completed 185 rounds, a figure that says a lot about the preparation and seriousness with which Roman is taking his world title bout against Yaegashi (20-3, 10 KOs). But this time, unlike other preparations, he has a special focus on becoming only the second fighter in his country to win a world title in three weight divisions.

"Roman has worked hard, he's shown in that is his workouts. You'll see him being faster, stronger. They will see a stronger 'Chocolatito' at the weigh-in. For example, against 'Gallo' Estrada Román was not 100%," says Wilmer Hernandez, trainer of Gonzalez.

"The Japanese fighter wants to know if he can take the punch of Roman. Yaegashi is well defined, looks sharp, but I do not believe he will last eight rounds."

According to Hernandez, the idea is that after weighin Román will add 12 pounds. He currently weighs around 114.5-pounds.

"He will arrive at 124-pounds. He will not lose speed or strength in his punches."

[QUOTE=LowBlowKO;14896762]Earn..you may just wannt check a fact or two there Estrada certainly wasn't going up in weight to fight Gonzalez...and actually Rodrgiuez Jr wasn't either. I'd personally consider wins over Niida and Takayama to be almost as good as well.…
