‘Chocolatito’ To Make A Comeback, Aims for Super-Flyweight Title Shot

Roman Gonzalez is eying a return to boxing by targeting the super-flyweight division. 

The 36-year-old is best known for his monster trilogy with Juan Francisco Estrada. And that is how he capped off his last fight, as ‘Chocolatito’ came second best in a majority decision.

That took the rivalry to 2-1 in favor of Estrada in a closely-fought contest. But during his 18-year career, Gonzalez was a four-weight world champion at super-flyweight, flyweight, light-flyweight and strawweight.

And in doing so, he became the first-ever boxer from Nicaragua to do this. So with nothing else to prove, the fact that the star is considering a return was a surprise. 

“Roman is looking to make a comeback and a pull off a couple fights before thinking of retirement just yet. He sees his (super-flyweight) division is very interesting and would like a shot at a title once again.

“We still don’t have a date, but everything indicates he will most likely fight this year. His is eager to get back in the ring. He sees his (super-flyweight) division is very interesting and would like a shot at a title once again.
