WBC super-flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez is willing to give rival Carlos Cuadras a rematch once he’s taken care of Srikaset Sor Rungvisai on March 18.
‘Chocolatito’ was linked to facing Cuadras again following an entertaining first meeting last September, although chose mandatory obligations which could eventually lead back to the Mexican.
“I have no problem giving Carlos Cuadras a rematch but right now my focus is on Sor Rungvisai who is my mandatory for the WBC,” said Gonzalez.
“I have the perfect game plan and on March 18 there will be no surprises. Ware planning to have another great camp for this fight there.
“I feel very confident that I will be victorious for my fans here in Nicaragua and all over the world, those watching on HBO Pay-Per-View and those in attendance in Madison Square Garden. I loved fighting in New York City last time and look forward to March 18 when I return.”
Gonzalez, who once again shares a bill with Gennady Golovkin, confirmed his coaching team for the Rungvisai contest following the sad passing of his trainer.
“With the passing of my long-time trainer Arnulfo Obando, my head trainer will now be my father Luis Gonzalez and also in my corner will be Wilmer Hernandez. They were both assistants to Arnulfo throughout my career,” he stated.
Obando was posthumously named WBN Trainer of the Year for 2016 after guiding Gonzalez to yet another world title.
