Chocolatito Wants To Take Things Slow, Adapt More To 115

By Carlos A. Montealto,

Everything indicates that the relationship between Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez and trainer Marcos Caballero will continue for a long time.

That union between Chocolatito and Caballero has strengthened after what the boxer displayed in his overwhelming victory against two-division world champion Moises Fuentes, whom he dispatched by way of the knockout in five rounds on September 15 at the T- Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Chocolatito returned to training this week, for a potential return in December of this year.

The victory was the first for Chocolatito since 2016, when he won a twelve round decision over Carlos Cuadras. The four division world champion was coming back from back to back defeats at the hands of WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.

Chocolatito was very pleased with his recent camp, and his new coach.

"I am willing to continue working with him (Marcos Caballero), I liked having him in the corner. (Caballero) is a man dedicated to the world of boxing, I like that, I think he is the kind of person that I need in my corner and during the training camps that are coming up," said Gonzalez in a conversation with Ramón Mclean, from the Tumbó la Cerca program on Radio 800.

What remains to be seen is the coordination that can be established between Caballero and Román. The trainer born in Estelí, resides in Coachella, California, where he is also tenting to the careers of his sons, Randy and Rommel Caballero.

Prior to his fight against Fuentes, Chocolatito made a camp of a little over two months in Coachella, a trend that could be repeated in future battles.

"Usually, the training camps I've done where with (Gennady) Golovkin (in Big Bear) or in Costa Rica, the United States and Japan. Here in Nicaragua I've never made a camp because I have many distractions and sometimes I neglect things, so it's better to do my preparation elsewhere," said Gonzalez.

And who will Chocolatito face next?

"There are many names," said Gonzalez. "There is no name that crosses my mind, I want to take things slowly and adapt more to the weight (115 pounds)."

They treated Roman like a god, but in reality he wasn't that great. He was a 4 division champ, but in reality he only went up a total of 10 lbs. As soon as he started fighting guys his own…
