He absolutely seemed as though a completed man back in 2017. There he was, spread out on the ring, having quite recently been annihilated by Sirksaret Sor Rungvisai – his second misfortune in succession. Maybe individuals had valid justification to feel that Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez was a force no more. He was pushing thirty, all things considered, not a youthful age for warriors who work in the lighter weight realms, as Chocolatito had. Also, the future Hall of Famer had been getting bigger physically while taking on bigger challenges. Chocolatito’s fight the earlier year against Carlos Cuadras had been no easy affair for the Nicaraguan. Once more, Chocolatito resembled a completed man as he lie folded at the feet of Sor Rungvisai.
That was then, at that point… since that time, things have changed. In the first place, Chocolatito went home for the year from the ring. Then, at that point, the man proceeded to win four battles in succession, three of those times inside the distance. At long last, Chocolatito slipped between the ropes last year to confront Juan Francisco Estrada for the subsequent time. In question were the WBA and WBC super flyweight titles. Despite the fact that he wound up losing the battle through questionable choice, it was obvious to everybody that Chocolatito had gotten back to shape – a least generally.
Chocolatito-Estrada 3 was along these lines set to go down, however, Covid 19 removed Estrada from the event. In ventured WBC flyweight titlist Julio Cesar Martinez, and last end of the week, he and Chocolatito tossed down in San Diego. It was, no doubt, a total expert class with respect to the veteran Chocolatito, as he completely overpowered his more youthful adversary. While nobody could contend that Martinez was down, intense, and talented, he was essentially no counterpart for a contender of Chocolatito’s type. Utilizing sharp protection while forcing persistently and tossing crashing shots with extremely careful precision, the four-time champion overwhelmed and beat up Martinez for the strong greater part of the twelve-round battle. Obviously, the appointed authorities managed in support of Chocolatito after the last ringer had sounded.
Now and again fans just need to venture back and marvel at a contender’s achievements. Not just has Chocolatito come out on top for championships in four divisions, he has now returned from the void to reassert himself as one of the perceived dynamic greats of the game. The man’s subsequent demonstration really adds to the inheritance that his first demonstration had laid out. Not many individuals can accomplish significance. Much less can accomplish it two times. Chocolatito is currently in the organization of an interesting not many.
