Chocolatito Wants Estrada Rematch, Views 118 as Dangerous Jump

WBA super flyweight world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez has stressed that he is ready to face Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada, the WBC champion, in a rematch.

And Gonzalez said that he would not mind fighting behind closed doors if recommended by renowned promoter Akihiko Honda of Teiken Promotions. In addition, he said he was happy because despite the coronavirus pandemic, he is doing well in a cheese business that he recently launched.

A four division world champion, Gonzalez really wants the option of fighting Estrada, but he is far from sold about the option of pursing a fifth world title at the bantamweight limit of 118-pounds.

"The Japanese (is someone I admire), Naoya (Inoue), is a guy who comes forward, very strong, has shown quality, conditions. He is a dangerous opponent, he is not easy, I came to a moment in my career where I was going to fight at 108 or 112, but at 118 the scenario is very dangerous," said Gonzalez to ESPN Deportes.

Regarding 'Gallo' Estrada, all he asked for was a decent purse.

"They have not confirmed anything to me yet, there is nothing yet, there are the talks, for me I would fight tomorrow as long as they pay me well. You (the media) should put pepper in the soup so we can receive a good purse," Gonzalez said.

"People are asking for the Estrada fight, or if not, make a defense and then the Estrada fight. If he loses (in his next fight) I am not interested, the most important thing is to fight with Estrada. I greet Estrada, he is my friend, and he is also willing to fight with me."

González (49-2, 41 KO's) did not rule out the possibility of making a fight behind closed doors.

"I am willing to do anything, this is the sport that one loves and we support the family from this sport. I am willing as long as they pay me in the manner that they have always valued me, Mr. Honda is the boss," Gonzalez said.
