On Saturday night, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez will face off against Carlos Cuadras for the WBC Super Flyweight Title. Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KOs) will be looking to make history by becoming the first ever Nicaraguan boxer to win titles in four different weight classes.
Gonzalez has previously won belts at the strawweight and junior flyweight levels, and he is the reigning flyweight champion. He will now move up in weight to challenge Cuadras (35-0-1, 27 KOs) for his super flyweight title in what should be a highly entertaining slugfest.
Chocolatito is considered by many boxing pundits to be the top pound-for-pound fighter on the planet, but beating Cuadras will certainly not be a walk in the park. Cuadras, of Mexico, has made six successful title defenses since taking the belt from Srisaket Sor Rungvisai in May of 2014 via an eighth-round technical decision.
Now that the stage has been set, let’s break down Gonzalez-Cuadras and all the ways you can keep up with the action.
