Roman Gonzalez: My Mission is To Knock Sosa Out!

by Haxel Ruben Murillo,

Román "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (42-0, 36 KOs) is very motivated to put on a show when he defends his WBC flyweight title against Mexican Edgar Sosa (51-8, 30 KOs) at the legendary Forum in Inglewood, California. The triple world champion will sacrifice a little money in his pocket, but on the other hand he will have the opportunity on May 16 to showcase himself to millions of fans through HBO.

The two boxers sparred four year ago, and Gonzalez is taking the fight very seriously.

"My mission is to knock out Sosa and leave a good impression, [but] it is a difficult fight. Maybe Sosa will arrive in excellent condition and can withstand my scrimmage. He's a guy that goes forward, likes to have his chin tucked in. I feel we will make a great job, surely I'll arrive in excellent condition. It will be a fight where we'll exchange punches."

"The Mexican has good combinations and possesses strength, but I'll try to master it slowly with my hooks to the body. It means a lot to fight at Inglewood because I know I was there for Alexis Argüello. I feel that only the big [names] can fight there. I want to make a big impression."

[QUOTE=B0XEO;15483866]Sosa is strong as hell, he had Yaegashi running around the ring all night afraid to exchange. The same Yaegashi that went to war with Gonzalez 2 fights later. Sosa's a very live dog in this fight.[/QUOTE] Sosa is faded,…

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;15483180]Estrada was the bigger guy? It was a weight drained Estrada and he still gave Roman that work the first half of the fight, until his gas tank ran dry and he still pushed Roman to the limit. Roman catches…
