    Default Are people overlooking Carlos Cuadras' chances against Roman Gonzalez?

    Carlos Cuadras is in his prime at age 28 and his record is 35-0-1. Roman Gonzalez will be his 7th defense of his WBC Super Flyweight title.

    I've been watching him on Youtube, he's actually very good.

    I'm not saying he'll beat Gonzalez, but he's not going to be a pushover.

    I just don't know any of this guys opponents, tried watching a bit of him too and you're right, he is very good. Chocolatito truly seems like a special fighter though, and though he's moved up quite a bit there is so little between the weights, he should show himself to be in a different class imo.

    Probably guilty of overlooking the fight in general. Guilty here. I didn't see some miracle p4p buzz saw vs Arroyo and he never really hit a second gear late on, he looked soggy.

    I'd credit Arroyo for being a better opponent than he was being given credit for.
    Chocolatito is consensus # 1 p4p for a reason.
    Watch for him to prove just why he's # 1 in his next fight.

    Yeh very true. Arroyo proved pretty cagey and found some holes in his defense. Gonzalez is a tremendous talent and among the elite, but for me this fight and Kovalev-Ward winner and how will have much to do with p4p top dog.

    Terrific fight. I'm highly anticipating it. I think Caudras is being overlooked because people are so enamored with Chocolatito, for good reason. My only thing is I think Roman was hurting to make weight a bit in his last fight, and that this weight gain will suit him really well, and his class will show. I wouldn't be surprised, however, if this goes the distance, and is closer than many of Roman's other fights.

    Should Cuadras be considered the consensus number 1 in the division in light of Inoue's recent showing?

    I'm not so sure Gonzalez fits in this division, he looked soft at the weight in. Usually guys at 115 are tremendously lean.

    Cuadras has the worst back acne I've ever seen. I'm guessing they didn't do VADA testing for this fight.

    Glad someone stayed awake for this

    Fight has been lost in the day. Just don't see unhittable 'superman' with Gonzalez.

    I love the avatar. If Trump wins you have to change it. You don't want to be tempting fate.
