Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter, will move up a weight class and challenge Mexican champion Carlos Cuadras for the WBC Super Flyweight belt.
Gonzalez (45-0-0, 38 KOs) will try to win a title in his fourth weight class when he takes on Cuadras, (35-0-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday, Sept. 10 from the Forum in Los Angeles. It’s his first fight on HBO as a headliner. In his last two fights, he was the co-main event to Golovkin.
Gonzalez, 29, said he was happy to challenge Cuadras for yet another world title. “It’s an honor to return to fight at the Forum in front of the great Los Angeles fight fans,” said Gonzalez. “Thanks very much to God, K2 Promotions, Mr. Honda and HBO for making this happen.”
Cuadras, 27, is fighting in the U.S. for just the second time, the first being on Nov. 13, 2014 at Fight Night at the Washington D.C. Hilton, where he defended his title for the second time with a sixth-round TKO victory against Marvin Mabait.
All of his other fights were either in Mexico or Japan.
Chocolatito will attempt to surpass his idol and mentor, the late Hall of Famer Alexis Arguello, also from Nicaragua, who won titles in three weight classes. “I think Arroyo was underestimated by many boxing fans who didn’t know about him,” Loeffler said. “And he did everything he could to win that fight. It was a very tough fight for Roman.
