THE Summit High Altitude Training Facility in Big Bear, California and its owner Abel Sanchez hosted a media workout this week featuring WBC Flyweight World Champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KO’s).

The number one pound for pound boxer in the world is moving up in weight to challenge WBC Super Flyweight World Champion Carlos “Principe” Cuadras, (35-0-1, 27 KO’s) for the world title in the division.

Gonzalez first moved his training camp to the San Bernardino mountain gym last summer to prepare for his fight against Brian Viloria. After initially having had a tough time adjusting to the altitude, he stated this week that, for this fight against Cuadras, he feels like he has had the best conditioning of his career.
