Roman Gonzalez Should Face Reveco Next, Says Rizzo

By Pablo Fletes,

Well known boxing agent Ricardo Rizzo is one of the best connected individuals to the fight scene in Nicaragua.

On Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York, Rizzo was ringside with one of his clients, Cuban heavyweight Luis "King Kong" Ortiz, who knocked out Argentine contender Matias Ariel Vidondo to capture the the vacant interim-title of the World Boxing Association (WBA).

On the same card, WBC flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez stopped tough veteran Brian Viloria in nine rounds.

Rizzo says Gonzalez should next fight Juan Carlos Reveco (36-2, 19KOs). The fight between Gonzalez and Reveco had been discussed several times in the past but never happened. 

"Chocolatito is a sensational fighter. He throws hard combinations with both hands, has good defense and makes everything so easy. He's sensational," said Rizzo. "He really is a complete fighter, and for that reason he is already fighting on HBO. Now his management should look at getting the best purses, because he is a fighter who sells."

"Roman should make his next fight with an opponent like Argentina's Juan Carlos Reveco, who has been a world champion in two divisions, to prepare for a more demanding fight with an opponent like Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada. Chocolatito is already able to choose opponents, but in the end everything will be decided by Mr. Akihiko Honda, his international promoter."

With Saturday's win, Roman raised his record to 44-0, with 38 knockouts. He is one of the most effective fighters of today, with a high knockout percentage (86 percent) and with a bright future thanks to the huge talent that he always displays in the ring.

"At the moment, Roman has to maintain his position and prove that he can be the best pound for pound fighter for a long time," Rizzo concluded.

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;16163685] Again, you forget to mention how he obliterated Sanchez Jr in the rematch. The guy had 4 1/2 inches in height above Estrada, and even campaigns 3 divisions above nowadays. Yet, Estrada KO'd him when they met again. Interestingly…
