Carlos Cuadras To Begin Negotiations For Roman Gonzalez Clash

By Miguel Rivera

This weekend, Mexico's Carlos Cuadras will start negotiations for the next defense of his World Boxing Council super flyweight world championship, which may take place this September against one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, Nicaraguan Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez.

According to Stables, will meet in Los Angeles with renowned promoter Akihiko Honda, also promoter Gonzalez, to see the possibility of achieving the duel, which would be at 115 pounds to be held on US soil. Obviously the support of HBO is expected.

"Let's see how feasible it is to make the fight. I'm hoping that one hundred percent that it can happen. I spoke with Mr. Honda and he seems to be making the fight. I only need to reach an economic agreement," revealed Cuadras. "The fight would be tentatively set for September, around the national holidays, but we'll see."

Cuadras (35-0-1, 27 KO) has made six successful defenses of the WBC championship, while Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KO) is a three-time world champion who made four defenses of the WBC flyweight crown, and also has 15 world championship fights - all which he won.

"I know it's a dangerous fight, one where one of us will have to lose our unbeaten record and I hope that it's going to be Chocolatito Gonzalez. I know that Roman is a very complete tough fighter, hard-punching. I hope that he doesn't hit as hard at 115 as he's done in the divisions in which he's previously fought, but I trust in my punching power, in my speed and my boxing to get the job done. I need to study him, it's a good fight," Cuadras told ESPN Deportes.

Cuadras is one of the possible opponents for Roman Gonzalez, who is also looking at names like Juan Francisco Estrada, Naoya Inoue and Juan Hernandez as potential options for his return.

Roman could be making a very big historical leap this year and next year.

Chocolatito would beat Cuadras up depending on how tough CC is would determine if he goes down or not , but he isn't a huge puncher fades and would just back up all fight giving RG forward momentum Roman struggles…

[QUOTE=mannysavage;16760523]This acctually makes me angry, Cuadras has no right to face Gonzalez next, he needs to get past his mandatory Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, whom btw was on his way to KTFO Cuadras in their last fight when the fight got…
