Cuadras Says Chocolatito Rematch Deal Still Being Worked Out

By Haxel Ruben Murillo

Carlos Cuadras (35-1-1, 27KOs) only has one opponent on his mind, and that fighter is former four division world champion Román "Chocolatito" González (46-0, 38KOs).

On September 10 at the legendary Forum of Inglewood in Los Angeles, California, Cuadras believes he was robbed of a win and his world title. Gonzalez won a twelve round unanimous decision to capture the WBC super flyweight title - and made history as the first boxer from Nicaragua to win world titles in four weight divisions.

Now a rematch is being discussed for the 18th of March in New York. The fight would be the co-featured attraction to the ring return of middleweight king Gennady Golovkin, who may defend his title against mandatory challenger Daniel Jacobs.


Although the president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Mauricio Sulaimán, announced the rematch - Cuadras indicates that there are still some details to finalize. However, he says the negotiations are advanced by 90% and there should be official confirmation in the next few days - if the two sides will reach a deal. Cuadras has yet to receive an information regarding the money.

"I still have not been told about the purse, but it seems that they are already announcing it. My agent said that on March 11 or 18, the fight will take place in New York. There is still nothing official, but the negotiations are already taking place," Cuadras said.

"The only thing missing is that Akihiko Honda (international promoter of both fighters) tells me 'yes.' I'm ready, I don't want to fight with anyone but Román. People deserve that rematch, it was a great fight, and it was even a nominee for fight of the year."

There was some talk that Gonzalez had attempted to squeeze away from the rematch, because he wanted an interim-fight in his first defense.

"Maybe Roman was afraid to fight me immediately. Maybe he wanted to do a fight to polish his belt and then take the rematch. I think I deserve this fight, he told me he would do the rematch. Maybe it's a bit scary for him, I do not know," Cuadras said.

Cuadras said that he accumulated a month of training in Mexico. With the height of the land in his favor, he says it will fill his lungs with oxygen and prepare him to arrive in great condition for the second fight.

"What's going to change in the rematch - is that the first round is going to be like round 13," warned Cuardas, who plans to come out swinging very early.

Cuadras cant' beat Chocolatito with the same game plan, he needs to stay his ground, Chocolatito is now the Champ and you have to take it from the champ.
