Chocolatito Not Pleased With Offer For Inoue, Prefers Cuadras

By Haxel Ruben Murillo

WBC super flyweight champion Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez (46-0, 38KOs) was recently presented with a unification offer to take on WBO king Naoya 'The Monster' Inoue (11-0, 9KOs). Gonzalez is represented by Teiken Promotions, while Inoue's promoter is very close with the head of Teiken.

Gonzalez recently picked up the WBC title with a hard-fought decision over another Teiken fighter, undefeated Carlos Cuadras. Inoue was ringside to watch the contest at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Chocolatito is not happy with the money being offered for a fight with Inoue. He believes HBO would offer up more money if he faced Cuadras in a rematch. The fight with Cuadras was very close and there were a few who felt the contest could have been a draw.


Another fighter who wants a piece of Chocolatito is Mexico's Juan Francisco Estrada, who vacated his WBA/WBC flyweight titles and is moving up to super flyweight next month. He lost a very competitive decision to Gonzalez in 2012, at junior flyweight.

He feels HBO will not offer a lot of money to face Inoue, a Japanese fighter who is unknown to the American audience, on U.S. soil.

"I do not care if Estrada asks me a rematch. If he's not going to offer me good money, it won't happen. A rematch with Cuadras would be tremendous, there would be more money. I do not know if people from HBO are interested in a fight with Inoue in the United States. I've been offered a fight with Inoue, but with a low purse, which does not suit me. The problem is the purse. It all depends on the people from HBO."
