Roman Gonzalez To Continue Career, Eyes Kal Yafai's WBA Title

By Elisinio Castillo

Former four division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez is planning to continue his career and his mind set on capturing another world title at 115-pounds.

Earlier this month at the Forum in Los Angeles, Gonzalez suffered a vicious fourth round knockout loss at the hands of WBC champion Srisraket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand.

The defeat was Gonzalez's second, who saw his unbeaten streak come to an end in March with a decision loss to Sor Rungivisai.

The target for Gonzalez would be a match against WBA champion Kal Yafai (22-0, 14 KOs), who is promoted by Eddie Hearn of Matchroom. Hearn is now making moves in the American market and Yafai is one of the boxers that he would like to get showcased on HBO. Yafai has a defense scheduled on October 28 against Sho Ishida.

HBO has interest in staging another event in 2018 which is going to place the spotlight on the super flyweights and Yafai is one of the boxers they are interested in showcasing on the network.

"I would love to fight for the WBA championship, and Akihiro Honda think it's what we will be looking for. We've already talked about that," said Chocolatito.

In addition, Chocolatito discarded for the moment another rematch against Rungvisai and said he would rather regain another world title in the division and then explore the idea of moving up yet again. Rungvisai had been ordered to face Juan Francisco Estrada in a mandatory fight.

"I would like to be champion in another organization to unify titles. It's a shame [that I lost to Sor Rungvisia], because if I would have won I could have faced Naoya Inoye in Japan to unify our belts."

Román, who has a professional record of 46 wins and two defeats, will rest and then think about what he plans to do in the future.

[QUOTE=Mexican_Puppet;18102612]Hahahahaha. González never fought other style and he doesn't know how to do. Are you Stu.pid? It's like think that Margarito can box and move around the ring. And that division is not too high. He weighted only 3 pounds…
