THE man they call ‘Chocolatito’ – Roman Gonzalez – usurped WBC super-flyweight king Carlos Cuadras (Mexico) in a fight-of-the-year contender at the Forum in Inglewood on September 10, 2016.
Gonzalez became Nicaragua’s first ever four-weight world champion in the process. “It was a great fight, Thank god, everything turned out well,” said Gonzalez. “It was a very difficult fight. I knew that we would both arrive in good condition. It was the most difficult fight I’ve ever had. I’ve never fought at this weight before but the important thing is that we won the fight. I’m always thinking about my family and my children and they gave me the strength to continue.”
