A little over a month before his unification fight against the flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council Juan Francisco Estrada, the Nicaraguan Román González, is training in Coachella, United States.
This long-awaited fight will take place on March 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. “Chocolatito” has made a remarkable recovery in his career, after two losses against the Thai Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and now he will have a long-awaited rematch against the Mexican Estrada.
Román commented on some aspects of his training in an interview with journalist Miguel Ángel Cerebros:
“I feel very good and comfortable. I decided to train here because in my country there are many distractions that are not suitable for my career. Currently I weigh 127 pounds, the idea is to gradually lose weight, eating well until the day of the weigh-in. I usually go down without wearing out too much.
“We are going to arrive in excellent condition for the fight because it is so very important. What is certain is that it will be a great fight.”
Roman is 33 years old and arrives with 50 wins, 2 losses and 41 knockouts.
