Chocolatito Training for Return


Los Angeles, CA (November 15, 2018) Four-Division Pound for Pound World Champion Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, (47-2, 39 KOs), is training in Coachella, CA for his return to action against former world champion Pedro ‘Jibran’ Guevara (32-3-1, 19 KOs), in the 10-round super flyweight co-main event at UNDISPUTED set for Saturday, December 8 at the StubHub Center. The event will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark® beginning at 10:20 p.m. ET/PT.

“I love training here in Coachella, the air is clean and it’s very quiet,” said Gonzalez. “I’ve trained here before; the sparring is great and the facilities are just what I need to prepare myself for victory.”

"Guevara is a very strong fighter, he was already a world champion and wants to return to the that status," Gonzalez said. "I’ve always respected my opponents, for me it’s important to train very hard and really let me hands go in the fight like I did in my last fight against Fuentes and I got the knockout.”

“I felt very good against Fuentes, the training camp for that fight was perfect. As long as my training camps go smoothly I feel that anything is possible.”

"I’m staying at super flyweight, I want to keep training and take care of myself between fights, not put on too much weight. I want to be world champion again and if I’m victorious I want to fight one of the champions next. My dream is to become a world champion again.”
