Roman Gonzalez Repeating Path of Success in Training Camp

World Boxing Council flyweight champion Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez (44-0, 38KOs) is relying on a winning formula, by traveling to Costa Rica, along with his team, to train for his next title defence.

The hitlist lineup is: Arnulfo Obando (Trainer), Wilmer Hernández (Physical trainer), and  Luis Gonzalez (Dad plus Associate).

Roman will train in Costa Rica for a full month, to reach peak condition for the scheduled fight with Puerto Rican contender McWilliams Arroyo (16-2, 14KOs), which takes place on April 23rd at the Inglewood Forum in Los Angeles.


After training last year in Costa Rica, Roman and team, achieved a "chariots of Fire" success. Now wild horses won't prevent them from returning, in order to extend his reign.

“I am traveling this Sunday, I will train the exact same way I did prior to my fight with Brian Viloria. I will be completely focused, far from distractions. I believe that this fight against Arroyo will be great, so I must train exceptionally hard for it," he pledged.

Gonzalez dominated Viloria last October at The Forum in Los Angeles, when he stopped him in nine rounds at New York's Madison Square Garden. Arroyo ws in action last April in Puerto Rico, when he knocked out Victor Ruiz in three rounds.

The king is back next month! I expect a good scrap from Arroyo, but don't think he'll be able to go at Roman's pace for the full twelve. It's gonna be interesting to see if Roman can take McWilliams out.…
