Roman Gonzalez hunts opponent for WBC defense, pinpoints Edgar Sosa
After his comfortable victory over Mexican Valentín León, on February 28, where he hardly broke sweat in three rounds before knocking out his rival, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (42-0, 36 KOs) is preparing for his next fight scheduled for May in which will defend his WBC flyweight title for the second time.
In an effort to totally focus on his training, Román is expected to soon confirm his next opponent.
“I am not concerned who will be the next opponent as I’m working hard in the gym,” said Chocolatito. “I maintain a strict diet and want to stay at a stable weight. I’m at 125 pounds and do not want to overdo it. I really feel good in every aspect of my camp and by May I will be at a spectacular level.
The “Chocolatito” said he will travel to the United States last week of April to complete his pre-defense training. “The idea is to train two or three weeks there (USA) and climatize. It’s already decided and most likely in late April we will go, “admitted Gonzalez.
WBC flyweight king told of his desire to face Edgar Sosa, and although its not up to him, the idea motivates the Nicaraguan.
“I know Edgar and is a great fighter. I would confront him, I know that is not in my hands, but it would be a nice fight,” said Roman.
