Chocolatito Warns Estrada About Sor Rungvisai
Speaking from personal experience Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez advised former opponent, Juan Francisco ‘Gallo’ Estrada, to avoid standing right in front of Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.
Last year, in two dynamic fights against Sor Rungvisai, Gonzalez would falter in a close decision in March, but would get knocked out in September’s rematch.
Estrada, who fell to Gonzalez in very competitive 2012 faceoff, is the mandatory challenger for Sor Rungvisai’s WBC super flyweight world title, set for February 24th at the Forum in Inglewood.
Gonzalez will be watching Sor Rungvisai vs. Estrada with a lot of interest.
“I’m going to be watching Estrada-Rungvisai, I do not wish anyone any harm, but the one with the best conditioning will win the fight,” said Gonzalez.
“Estrada, what he has to do is move for the whole fight and not stand with Rungvisai. If he stands [in front of him], it will be dangerous.”
Gonzalez expects a lot of pressure to do a future rematch, if the Mexican boxer snatches the title from Sor Rungvisia.
But Gonzalez will reject that idea, because he wants to take his time in rebuilding his career and refuses to be rushed into a major fight.
“I will say this, that because I beat Estrada once – the people at HBO are going to want that fight to happen immediately and that is not what we want to do. We want to take things calmly, we’ll see what happen. Estrada is good, he knows how to do things well, but Rungvisai is a guy who hits very hard, he is very complicated,” Gonzalez said.
