Roman Gonzalez Will Not Rush To a Title Fight With Kal Yafai

Four division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (46-2, 38 KOs) has returned to the Roger Deshon gym in Managua, Nicaragua, where he`s been working with trainer Gustavo Herrera, and he's also getting the support of physical trainer Alfredo Corrales. Besides them, Roman is being assisted by his father Luis Gonzalez.

"Chocolatito" has set an April deadline to return to the ring.  He doesn`t yet  know where he will fight but he would like it to be in Nicaragua.

In that fight he plans to test his skills and depending on the result he`ll chart  his future.

Gonzalez is trying to bounce back after suffering back to back defeats to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand in 2017.

"I have had a wonderful time in 2017. This is the year where I have rested the most. I`ve enjoyed my family.  I am now beginning the training stage, and with God´s help we will return to the ring in April, I'm ready to fight in Nicaragua," Gonzalez said.

"I just don`t  know how I'm going to feel in the ring again.  I have to see how I feel after the knockout I received by Rungvisai.  I want to take my time in order to be a  world champion again."

Gonzalez is not looking to rush himself to a world title fight. He wants to make sure that he's physically and mentally ready for such an opportunity.

He turned down a title shot opportunity against WBA super flyweight champion Kal Yafai.

"I will take a preparatory fight. I was offered a fight with Khalid Yafai in the United States on the Superfly 2 card on February 24, but I did not want to do it. I did not feel ready for the fight. I was four-time world champion, now I want to continue managing my career without haste, although my goal is to be world champion this year.

"Everything is possible depending on the situation, I do not know how I'm going to feel in the preparation fight, I have to see how I feel after the knockout I received against Sr. Rungvisai. I want to make a soft fight, be a champion of the world and then unify titles. I'm not in a hurry to be a champion, but I would take the fight with Yafai later on."
