Roman Gonzalez makes another successful foray to 112lbs

Phil Jay 26/05/2013

Undefeated knockout artist Roman Gonzalez took his impressive resume’ to 35 wins, with 29 stoppages in his second outing at flyweight after stopping a hapless Ronald Barrera in Managua, Nicaragua.

The 25 year-old, who is highly thought of as a star of the future, belted Barrera into submission in five rounds to help himself to another straightforward win as he contemplates a more permanent move to the weight.

‘El Chocolatito’ has already held world belts at 105 and 108lbs, making a total of seven title defences in all and could now be ready to challenge for a third world crown later this year.

An 82% KO ratio says it all about the rugged Nicaraguan’s attributes, with the likes of former foe Juan Estrada, who now holds two belts at 112lbs, and WBC king Akira Yaegashi in sight for Gonzalez for his next outing.

Gonzalez last fought at flyweight in October 2012 when taking out Stiven Monterrosa in just under nine minutes.
