    Default Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez v Israel Gonzalez

    Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez set to face Israel Gonzalez on Oct. 23 in Mexico City

    The legendary Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez will headline an Oct. 23 triple-header in Mexico City that will feature four of the world’s best super flyweights.

    Gonzalez (49-2, 41 KOs) will meet Israel Gonzalez (25-3, 11 KOs) for a version of the WBA super flyweight title in a card that will stream in the U.S. on DAZN.

    Juan Francisco Estrada (40-3, 27 KOs) will defend the WBC super flyweight title against Carlos Cuadras (39-3-1, 27 KOs). And in a flyweight bout, Julio Cesar Martinez (16-1, 12 KOs) squares off against Maximino Flores (25-4-2, 17 KOs).

    Chocolatito won the first 46 bouts of his career before losing a pair in 2017 to Sor Rungvisai. He’s rebounded with TKO victories over Moises Fuentes, Diomel Diocos and Khalid Yafai.

    Chocolatito and Estrada will face each other in a rematch if they win their fights on Oct. 23. They met in a memorable 2012 slugfest for the WBA light flyweight title, which Gonzalez took by unanimous decision.

    First, though, Estrada has to get past Cuadras, whom he defeated by decision in 2017.

    “I am excited to return to the ring,” Estrada said. “It has been tough months for the whole world and we want to give a great show to all the fans of this sport. The first fight against Cuadras was a good fight, and without a doubt, this will be, too. Also, we are going to share the show, Chocolatito and I, and if everything goes well, we hope to see each other again soon.”

    There is a bit of justice here, I felt Isreal Gonzalez did enough to beat Yafai. So getting a shot at the title now is fine with me.

    Chocolatito although not prime anymore should still be able to handle this assignment.

    Wins by Gonzalez and Estrada will hopefully lead to a rematch between the 2. Even after 8 years I would still like to see it.

    I'll be rooting for Chocolatito, as I'm a big fan. Yes, he is past his prime but as you said @Alpha he should be up to the task.

    This is a very solid card. Chocolatito looked throw back brilliant breaking apart Yafai last out. Both he and Estrada are pure pleasures to watch navigating a ring. Estrada v Cuadras not a bad rematch at all but ol Carlos wasn't looking so good prior to his odd wbc imposed alcohol 'suspension' before covid hit. Looking forward to these.

    So Cuadras and Maximo Flores both tests positive for covid . Julio C Martinez gets a new opponent in Moises Calleros. I really would hate to see them scrap Estrada fighting of all the fights .

    Trying to get this stream going but it drops literally every 5 minutes . All other apps and vids flowing nicely...but ol DAZN is just sitting there timing out after another refresh. And another. Annnnd one more .

    I didn't realise this was on, dazn Canada is working fine.

    Looks like only two fights left but they're not bad...

    I see tall git Pacheco was on earlier, I ll rewind and watch that later, can't miss Mikey Vargas and his awkward babbling.

    people wrote gonzalez off too soon I think, big Wang sor rungvisai is a massive git and I think gonzo won the first fight, he did look bad in the rematch though.. Hes looked good sever since he got warmed up after a few rounds v the Mexican guy who just wanted to buy an uber car...

    Totally agree, I was one of them . Granted Yafai isn't exactly p4p material but I was prying my big fat foot outta my mouth right off during that fight . Hate to miss tonight but gonna try quick cache drop and clean up hoping it doesn't start to soon.

    Smooth so far. That wide sweeping left Gonzalez is repeating is going to get him into some trouble.

    Pretty good second round, the mexican is strong and landing some good stuff but other gonzalez is starting to get into it too and getting good stuff in too... Mexican gonzalez is big and should be getting the better of. It damage wise... Good fight though.

    Nice work from chocolatito in the 3rd round, he looked in control there but the Mexican gonzalez does look like he has power in the body punches, they could add up on the older guy as it goes on..
