Arroyo's Promoter: We Want Estrada - Winner Gets Chocolatito

By Miguel Rivera

Last night at The Forum in Los Angeles, Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez retained his WBC flyweight championship with a twelve round unanimous decision over Puerto Rican contender McWilliams Arroyo.

The fight broke a ten fight knockout streak for Gonzalez. The last boxer to go the distance with Gonzalez was current WBA/WBO flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada in 2012.

Promoter Peter Rivera of Puerto Rico Best Boxing, who promote Arroyo, is looking to get his fighter right back in the mix with another HBO televised fight.

Rivera wants to match Arroyo in a fight with Estrada, where the winner is measured Gonzalez in a title unification clash at the end of the year. Estrada is also gunning for a rematch with Gonzalez sometime in 2016 or 2017.

"I think McWilliams showed that he's at a high level, regardless of how you looked at the rounds. I think this was a great fight. The most exciting fight for the public [on Saturday] with good competitive rounds," said Rivera to ESPN Deportes. "I think it was a 'win-win' situation, although it sounds ironic, but sometimes you win and sometimes you lose - and that's what happened here."

"This kind of fights opens many doors. A fight like this would give fame to 'El Gallo' Estrada. I will communicate with the people from HBO. I will wait for McWilliams rest and the we'll work for another world title fight. I will propose a fight between the 'El Gallo' Estrada and McWilliams, where the winner goes straight to face 'Chocolatito'. In this division, these are the only two fighters who can stand and fight 'Chocolatito' and this fact was confirmed [on Saturday]."

[QUOTE=BrometheusBob.;16643622]I guess so. Or we can skip that step and make Estrada/RG[/QUOTE] If they plan on making Gonzalez/Estrada 2 a main event, I'm not sure they should. If it's only meant to be a co-main, then they can do without…

Gallo/Arroyo could be a way of introducing Estrada to the American audience.
